Well, been awhile. Rescued some old 2×4s from the backyard, cut out the bad parts, and then resaw the rest.
Was a few boards, but not what I needed for this project. Seems the Boss wants a larger Pantry cupboard…..

Trip to Menards for a few boards. 4 1 x 8 x 6', 3 1×4 x 6’, and a pair of 1×10s by 6’. atched up the 1×8s and glued them up into two panels..

These will be the sides of the cupboard. The two skinny boards used to be one of the 1×4s. Bandsaw to rip 6’ long board….Had to clean up one edge, though

These will be the “stiles” running up the front edges of the side panels. I also needed two “rails” to connect the two stiles…

Figured out I needed them to be 30”, I marked out for two pieces on the second 1×4. I will leave these two as 1×4s
How to join these together?

One way is to do a half lap. Cut away half the thickness of the mating boards. sometimes on the ends (top of the stiles) and sometimes in the “middle” somewhere ( 5” up from the bottom.
Hand saw to make a cut, a wide chisel to pop the waste off, then a plane and a paring chisel to finish things up.

Then do a dry fit ….

And check for any high spots. Got all four lap joints done. needed a way to help connect the sides to each other..

Decided to use two webframes, bot will be out of sight. Top one will also hold the cupboard’s top, the second one will be near the bottom, right under the bottom shelf. need to rip a few more parts, using the last of the 1×4s

I’ll mortise and tenon the ends together. May add a middle strut to keep things from twisting.

Couple of squares, a wide chisel and a paring chisel. A block plane and a shoulder plane. Knife to do layouts with, mallet for moving chisels along. Along with that “new” Panel saw..

Had this backsaw for joinery work. Need those clamps taken off the panel. Top will also be a glue-up, using the one 1×10 x 6’. Which leaves me one more 1×10. Might find something to use it for…

Hey, it is a start…stay tuned.
