« Part 6: Cleaned up the top and sanded.... almost blew it. Part 7 of Hope Chest for Daughter #2 series Part 8: Back at it... »

It’s been a 2 year delay, so I guess I better get going on this project again…

The bread boards were previously planed at the same time as the top boards.

I cut the dados with a slot cutting router bit on the router table. Then I cut the top to length on the TS with a panel sled. I cut the tennons on the ends with a hand router and a rabbiting bit with a guide bearing.

I cut the slots short on the front side of the bread boards to hide the joint…

One of these ruptured when mounted, so I had to chisel out the blow out square and plug it.

I ripped both sides to get the final width and the ripped the ends in the panel sled to get the final length.

Sanded 80-150-220 and have a silly smooth surface.

Looking good, Matt. Nice to see you back at it. Funny how busy life can get. Great choice of wood too.
