« Part 21: Pine and jarrah Boxes Making the panels Part 22 of Working with recycled timber series Part 23: Pine and Jarrah boxes finishing »

Once the glue up of the panels had been allowed to dry overnight it was time to lay everything out and ensure every thing fits up OK.

Prior to assembly squareness was checked again and minor sawing to size undertaken.
The finger joints needed a slight tweeking to get everything on a level base line an correct fit up.

Once the final assembly checks were completed a final sanding was undertaken starting with 180 grit and finishing with 320 grit to remove glue residue and some minor splinter imperfections

At this stage there is no base on the boxes only the four sides were assembled.

All appeared A OK for fitment of the base.

The base was a piece of HDF rebated into the bottom of the box.
Then it was off for complete assembly and glue up.
