Moving right along, now. I checked the narrow panel end for square…..zero to 1/4” along one side, zero to 1/16” along the other side. Circular saw to rough the wider one back to square, not going to worry about the barely there one. Clamped the panel into the leg vise, added a clamp out in front, #5-1/2 jack plane to joint the edge. I think I can try a test fit of all the built-so-far parts..
As for that top laying under everything?, well, the #5-1/2 went to town on it, to get both faces flat(almost)
Okay, laid out a bunch of marks along the corner’s ends. 3/8” Forstner bit to drill some counter bores. Then a pilot hole. Apply a bead of glue on the non-drilled part ( held in place with a clamp or two) and then added a few screws.
Once all four corners were screwed and glued, I could stand this thing up on it’s own four feet
Added the top bar above the door opening. Then made a couple (for now) corner blocks to hold it in place
Screwdriver collection? Two screws and some more Elmers to hold things in place. I also added a cleat to hold a floor
I’ll run cleats all the way around. Need two more corner blocks made. I add a slotted hole in them, and attach the top that way.
hey, we are making a bit of progress…I think. Stay tuned…
