Finally got started on Norms Miter Bench and Storage. I had previously rough cut the base components so thankfully I didn’t have to break down six sheets of 3/4 ply. I started with the rabbits and the dado’s on all of the pannels. Note, the rabbits (when called for) go on the back not the front of the panel, most important on the right cabinet (scratch one panel). Then used a template to cut the notches and hole in the back for dust collection (scratch the same panel the second time).
Cutting the half laps in the 2×4 creates an absolute mess of chips and dust even with dust collection. It is monotonous and dirty process. I got done with the left cabinet half laps and needed a break so I went ahead and assembled the 2×4 frame for the left cabinet.
I have mounted the line for the dust collection, and now I need to add the line for the compressed air.
Now it is time to finish up the right cabinet 2×4 half lap frame and get the dust collection line ran. I also need to move the air compressor up into the loft and get the line ran down for that.
More to follow.
