« Part 7: Face Frame, part 1 Part 8 of Stepback Cupboard in Pine series Part 9: Catching things up, face frame installed »

Hand tremors…PITA to do woodworking with. New meds may be the cause, will find out Monday. Anyway, this morning, I was still house, and puppy sitting….once they were done with their business outside, and laying down for their all-morning naps…I could head to the shop for a bit…had to rearrange a little bit..

Moved the case a bit ( those pipe clamps are nice, but a detriment to knee caps) so I could use the mitresaw..

Swung it over to the “45” stop….cut a few corner blocks..

Glue and screws. Pilot holes were with the brace and bit, again….needed the countersink bit for a couple holes…

Just for the two front blocks. reset the jig for the rails..

The 1×3 had a slight bow to it..

Right down the middle. “we have ways”...This rail only gets a single bead…

Then tried some layout work, to mark where, how long, and how wide the tenon would be….was having issues with holding a pencil in the right hand…..after dropping the thing a few times…took a “break” for a bit..

After lunch, and another Puppy Potty Call….tried it again…mainly to finish the “beadwork”..

These narrow ails get two beads, on the face of the board only. Same routine with the smooth plane. They make these 1×2 s by ripping down a wider 2 x, and just leave the saw marks. Making a royal mess of the floor..

Between the smoother and the 45…..Three narrow rails were somehow beaded up…

You might be able to see the pencil markings from that layout attempt….Rails were ready for mortise and tenon work ( but I wasn’t..hand issues..) but two more corner blocks needed done..

Later, I’ll make a slotted hole in each corner block, so a screw can be used to attach the top of the case. Slot is so the top can “move” with the weather changes.

Next time ( after a call to the Doctor about these shakes/tremors) I can do the Mortise & Tenon work and assemble the face frame….stay tuned

You’re making great progress, Bandit. All of the beading looks nice. I also like the bottom detail at the sides. Good work!

Have your say...
