well i had some really good shop time today and got alot done. a lot of pictures so i will try to keep text to a minimum. as always first i started off cutting the board to manageable pieces. then milled them 1/8” heavy and let them do their moving and took them down to final size when i needed them.
then i needed to glue up the panel for the top and here i am doing a dry glue up to get everything ready. after the glue up was done and the glue dried i took the panel out. flushed the joints with a block plane, sanded, took the panel to final size and cut the profiles.
then i made the drawer runners and cut the sliding dovetails into them to hold them.
then in the picture above at the bottom you can see a kick plate. this was cut to 3/4” and rabbeted 1/4” to give some more structural support. this will have the hinges on it and since the door is 1/2” thick the 1/4” rabbet leaves it flush with the door and gives it a bit or hold in the back. its just screwed on, to be plugged with ebony later.
the i cut pocket holes in the case sides to hold the top. and then a picture of what i got done today.
thats all for today. tomorrow i will plan on making the door and beginning cutting the dovetails. also i will make and fit the drawer. might even get to finish the drawer sides by spraying a few coats of shellac on. so till tomorrow, have a nice day everyone!
