« Part 2: Wood supplies, and one glue up Part 3 of Next Kitchen Project series Part 4: LONG day in the shop »

Ok..side #1 came out of the clamps, today..

This may be the outside of the case..

And this goes to the inside….Plan right now is to have both panels done, clamped together inside to inside face, and trim to final size….and a rebate for the back panel to sit in…

Had three more boards to glue up….to make Panel #2..

Kind of gappy….We have ways..

Clamped to the bench….run a jack plane down the edge. I had a straight edge line drawn , so I could joint the edges for a glue joint….Neither the jack, nor the No. 7c that can after, have a camber to the edge of their irons..

Jack to get close to the line, Jointer to finish to the line. Then on to the skinny middle board…

Same routine. hard to clamp to the bench? Not when I have a tool well handy..

Got the edges jointed…checked for gaps..

repeat for the skinny boards other edge, the for the other wide board….then time for glue, clamps and cauls..

Needed a third caul in the center…skinny board had a curve going on..

let this sit overnight, again….wanted to cut enough parts for a top for the case….two boards came from the cut-off stack….needed a third one…had to haul another 6’ plank to the shop…find the best 26” long section, and cut away the rest…then lay things out..

Hmmm…work in progress. Came out at 16” wide….needed a little more…but will go with what I have. there were two cut-offs….one was a bit plain-jane…may make a drawer front. Then set the other cutoff on top of it..

Drawer front? Not sure what I can do with this…thing…flip it over..

hmmm..don’t know about this….board was even tapered..

Will let side 2 sit until tomorrow, then try to get the top into some clamps. Then start on frames and such for the inside of the case, and maybe the face frame. Maybe next week, I can build the doors and drawers?

Stay tuned
