« Part 2: Back to work, a box from Poplar scraps Part 3 of A little time off series Part 4: Dovetails cleaned up, lid is done.. »

First, I needed to make a bottom panel, and some grooves to fit the panels ( 2) into…

Dry fit, to get the size of the panel…close.. need grooves, though..

Set up the Stanley 45 with the #13 groove cutter. Built a jig on the bench….so the sides would stay put..

Get one side grooved along both edges, the do the other long side….adjust things to hold the shorter ends..

Made a bunch of “noodles”

Once all 8 grooves were done, I checked how they lined up..

Needed a rebate plane…

Bottom panel needed a rebate all around, as it was a bit too thick for the grooves…adjust the jig again.

Wards (Stanley) #78. Works nicely going across the grain..

Had to keep checking to make sure I didn’t go too deep. As for the edge grain….I started the cuts, but needed a different plane to remove most of the waste..

Then a pass or two to get to the final depth….Dry fit before the Elmer’s?

Then spread the Elmer’s around, and get out the clamps…

And let this sit a day, or so….stay tuned.
