After getting the edges straight and true I glued them up into planks and let them dry. I pulled them from the clamps and ran them through the drum sander. Then cut them to final width then length. I then set up my leigh jig and routed the dovetails and wha la the basic box stands. In these picks the box is not glued together. I need to run grooves for the back and figure out what the layout for the inside is going to be. I’ll be gluing up the doors and get the box portion done this weekend. The inside and door (doors?) is where the work will actually start. The door (doors?) will recieve marquetry, and there are some relief carving going inside with some possible marquetry. I feel like a lot is accomplished, but know this is the beginning.
Sorry for the picture quality. They were taken with a cell phone.
