I’m building a mantel clock case using dimensioned poplar to learn some basic plane usage. I am getting practice cleaning up and squaring wood. I put grooves in the side panels for the dial board and reeded the edges. The base is 2” x 2” that I beveled and mitered. For the top panel I used morticed styles and rails with a raised panel. I still have to dowel the major pieces together and make the back door, and then finish it.

The planes that I have: smoother, block, plow, small shoulder, and an antique reeding plane.
