« Part 12: Web-Frames, part 1 Part 13 of Shop storage projects series Part 14: Face frame rails are done »

Well, I got all the frames done. Was stacking them up to get them out of the way…..and found a couple without the predrilled mounting holes done….PITA to do when everything is glued up. Got the first side up on the bench, and started attaching web-frames, using a framing square to keep things lined up..

Soon enough, had all the frames installed..

Then the fun part, I needed to get this mess OFF my bench, the second side ON my bench, and then the first side set on top. Luckily for me, help arrived yesterday. And, before all the tours were started, we moved things around so I could attached side 2…..

BURP!! Still recovering for that most excellent day, yesterday. Thank you, Chris and Andrew!

Ok, back to work, I think…..went to attach side 2…..something was holding the frames off the side…...had to dig out a chisel, and dig out a pocket for the frames to sit down into..

Up where the face rails go. way in the back? open a rebate right on out. Frames now sit down onto the sides rails. Screws hold a lot better, too. Ok, flip the case on it’s back….

Added a clamp to hold the case to the bench…not a whole lot of room there…
Started work on the rails to make it look like a face frame was used. Each rail was 1/2” longer on each end…why?

Because there is a half-blind dovetail to be sawn on the ends. Well, at least the tails. Then I traced around them, and chopped out the “sockets” they will fit into. Got both ends done, spread some Elmer’s on the mating parts, and the front edge of the web-frame. I used a pipe clamp to pull the sides tight. But, I needed more clamp..

As I wanted things clamped down to set the glue. One clamp was needed to make the middle of the web-frame flush with the top edge of the rail. Got two such rails done….did not have enough clamps to go on. I did cut the rest of the rails to their needed length. ...Then the Boss wanted to go “shopping”.

Brought home a 4×4 sheet of 1/4” plywood. Also a couple 2×2s. part of the panel will be for the back of the case, the rest will go into a frame I’ll make for the top. We also got a “upgrade” camera, so maybe people will quit complaining about photos hurting their sensitive eyes…..

Stay tuned….
