Well, at least it is now in a few clamps.
Started off the day checking over the two side panels, now that they are out of the clamps….One was a bit wider at the bottom? Ok, scribed a line to match the other panel. Saw the extra stuff off. Rail was too long at the bottom. 1/4” down to 0” along one side. Dressed the saw marks with a plane. leveled the glue joints up. with a plane, and a sander with 60 grit pad. Got both looking spiffy, compared to last night.
So, today they look a bit better, all cleaned up
yep, there are two of them sitting there. Still have some fine tuning to do. Right now, I need the end panel done, so I can take some measurements and start on the door…later. Cut out another thin oak panel, beveled the four edges to make it a raised panel. had to go back, a rework the first one, as it was a hair too long.
Set up the”Clamping Bench” once again. Might get the hang of this..someday.
Had to add a few extras…
The F style clamp is to keep the panel from bowing. The two C clamps are for filler strips. There is a gap there. used a thin strip to fill in the gap. Clamps to push them in place until the glue dries. later, I can plane them flush.
Next up? After the narrow panel is finesed up, then I can start on a door. There is a shelf to install at the bottom edge. I get the supports installed, and the shelf added. Then figure a way to add the top.
Corner joints will be counter-bored screws, with plugs to cover them. Have to decided whether to hide the plugs, or show them off. We getting there…SLOWLY.
