no previous part Part 1 of Ash Scraps = remote tote series Part 2: Design change, then a PIP »

had more than enough scraps left over….made 2 glued panels….then got them to match each other…then a bit of bandsaw work, to do a few curves..

laying off the the left…had two others that seem wide enough to use as sides, without any glue ups…laid out for some dovetail pins..

Wood is 5/16” thick Ash. A bit of backsaw work, a bit of chisel work…

We have pins….used these to lay out the matching tails….then try to stay on the waste side of the lines…more chisel work…then a dry fit, to see how good, or badly things fit..

Hmmm, need more practice….got the next corner done..

getting a little better each time….also shaped a handle…

need to cut a tenon on each end…maybe round the edges a bit more…back was having “issues”, didn’t even clean the bench up..

Next time to the shop ( laundry Detail, again?) I need to do the other two corners, and chop two through mortises for the handle’s tenons. Then see about a glue up? May build a set of dividers, sized to fit most TV Remotes, and add them? 5mm plywood bottom will get glued in place….

Stay tuned….( may also do a blog about that Front Porch rebuild, if anyone wants?)
