« Part 11: tweaked tenons and dry fit assembly Part 12 of Father - Daughter Project series Part 13: Finishing up the panels »

After sanding the panels we ripped and cross cut them to final size…

I was a little nervous doing such a short and wide rip, but it went smoothly….

Since the miter slots on my new-to-me refurbished Jet cabinet saw don’t match my old Craftsman contractors saw, I need to make a new cross cut sled. Until then, I’ll have to use my Incra miter gage with a fence….

Next up was routing the lip with a rabbit bit. This was a bit of a challenge, as the panel thickness varied both from
piece to piece, and within each piece. So I had to measure and adjust the bit height multiple times for each panel.

Here they are all finished up….

And here is my trusty assistant dry fitting the frame…

Lookin good Matt. Can’t believe all your panels are different thickness. That would have made me crazy!

Your daughter needs to secure all that beautiful hair when she’s in the shop. Just the thought of it getting caught in a power tool gives me chills!

We’ve had that conversation Andy. When we’re working, she braids her hair tight and tucks it into the back of her shirt. I stand right next to her at any power tools and watch her like a hawk.

Trust me Andy…. No ones worries about my girls more than I do.

I’ve had many a frightening image of her getting her face pulled into the TS or jointer.

Savor these moments. I remember my father – daughter project back in 2000 when we built shelving units for my daughter’s sewing room….....while my infant grandson watched happily in his bouncy chair.
