Today I sanded the drawer runners for a while, then worked on the vertical divider’s sliding dovetails. I first marked and chiseled-out the rear section of the sliding dovetail groove (I’d already done the front a few weeks back), then cut the recess in the front rail for the false front dovetail to fit into. Here are some pictures of the test fits:
Then it was finally time to glue-up the top section of the carcass. I sanded all inside sections to 150 grit before starting, since sanding inside corners after assembly is a pain in the ass. I also masked off lots of areas to prevent glue drizzle issues. Using a disposable glue brush and titebond 3, I glued and clamped it all together:
I had to bring it inside for the glue to cure properly. A garage shop in Colorado in November makes for a cold working environment.
