« Part 6: Joints Finished (almost) Part 7 of Bathroom Vanity Mirror series Part 8: Glass cutting is a pain »

Now that the frame is has the morise and tenon’s complete I want to cut the rabbet’s before I permanently assemble it. I am just using my rabbet plane with a batten to keep me straight and at 90 degree. I noticed that as I worked down the rabbet slowly worked away from the batten. The next one I do i’m going to set the nicher down and see if it helps keep things on track better. Any tips on this would help. here is a photo of cutting the rabbet.

and here is a shot of the assempled frame

Thanks for looking.
