« Part 9: Look Ma, I made a square. Part 10 of Shop Remodel series Part 11: Mambo #5 »

Hi everyone, hope all is well. I took a picture of the drawer in the saw till as I forgot to yesterday.

When we last left our caped crusader he had just assembled a square to become a tool cabinet. Well today I made a panel to become the back. I thought about doing ship lap for the back, but my board wasn’t wide enough. It was all I could do to resaw the 12 1/4” wide curly maple board into three plates 1/4” thick.

So I came up with a split panel frame instead and I think I like it. It will give me more to attach to down the road.

It was mortise and tenon all the way with a dado for the panel to sit into.

I think it is going to be pretty ;)

There it is! I got your back. See you tomorrow, same bat time, same bat channel.
