« Part 8: Back at it... Part 9 of Hope Chest for Daughter #2 series Part 10: Panels Cleaned Up »

Got a couple hours in the shop tonight. Sorting boards to match grain, color and shade, and then put together the first of several panel glue ups.

It’s been >1 year since I joined and planed these, so I gave each board a quick rip on the TS to straighten the edges. The Fusion blade gave me a very clean cut that was ready for glue.

First time using the new cauls (posted as a project some time ago if anyone wants to see more info) and they worked very well. I can hardly feel a seem between the boards.

Of course, I’m a glutton for punishment, so I put in #20 biscuits anyways…. primarily so I can say to myself “I didn’t waste money on the biscuit jointer after all”

Fun, fun, fun :^)
