Anyway. Before the class started I I had to finish the inside of the boxes with French Polish, before the room was taken over by the students.

There is different way of holding the pieces with nails bent in places

Or with small wood blocks

This is timely. I am about to start polishing the inside surfaces of mine tomorrow prior to glue-up.
I will try the nails. I usually use the small blocks but this time there are several different sized pieces.
Is the widening in the rebate in the last photo for the false floor drawer release to move in?

Looking good!
