« Part 2: SLOWLY finishing the legs, first glue-up Part 3 of Cherry Curved-Front Desk series no next part

Turns out the next step is making the back rail, clamping it to the glued up sides, and then clamping in a spacer in order to cut out the dovetails for the top, front rail. The back rail was relatively straightforward.

I joint with a plane. It is a great feeling when you get those long shavings at the end of the process.

I also like the impossibly thin shavings you get when using the smoother on the face.

Clamped together and ready for the next step.
