« Part 10: Tenons anyone? Part 11 of Father - Daughter Project series Part 12: Dry fit frame and final size panels »

I paired each tenon to fit it’s mortise snugly and dry fit the assembly thus far.

It’s starting to look like a hope chest and my “customer” is pretty happy.

Looking good!!!

You may want to add some panels to the sides….
Otherwise all the hopes and dreams, stored in the chest, will escape!!!

Nice work Matt
