In this episode I put 2 coats of polyurathane on all the parts. Then I glue up the top part of the chest and attached 2 hinges on the back and a latch on the front of the chest.
In the last installment, I showed the latest box I’m working on, it’s now time to make a pair of hinges for it…But, and it seems like there’s always a but, I had a problem with the fitted panel for the lid. When I cut the tenon around the thing, to fit into the side dadoes, I was trying to “sneak up on it”, once, twice, three times and it seemed like nothing was changing. So I gave it one of those “All or Nothing” taps to the Table Saw fence and...

I looked it over… mostly particle board stuff… but there was a small night stand that caught my eye.I was a little confused by the weight of the thing, thought it was hardwood, but I guess it’s Pine.

In this episode I start working on a chest. I cut all the parts to the right width on the tablesaw then I cut all the parts to the right length on the miter saw.
Awhile back, I was experimenting with designs for a type of lap easel for my Mom. Mom had hurt herself at work awhile back and she has difficulty doing a lot of walking. So she was looking into a hobby that she could do while stretched out or sitting on a recliner. She recently developed an interest in drawing so I thought a lap easel would be just the thing for her.
