« Part 2: Box Bottom Blowout Part 3 of Dovetail Bible Box series Part 4: Repairs -R- Us »

I decided that the next step after blowing out the bottom while routing the dovetail trenches was to glue up the bottom and trap the sides in the trenches. Even though the trenches were at different depths, all I had to do to get the side dovetails to fit was a little sanding. Here are some pictures of the glued up box bottom.

This shows the glue line down the middle of the box before clean up.

This one shows the bottom of the bottom and those pesky blowouts.
Glue Up 3
This one shows what the finished box will look like before finishing. I just layed the top onto the sides to get an idea of what’s to come. I just love all the figure and holes and stuff in that pallet wood. ;-)

Next time I should have a start on the repairs to the blowout. Wish me luck.
