« Part 2: feeling groovy.. Part 3 of New desk for my computer series Part 4: raise a panel? »

Well, last night, after a long day of Garage sales and other errands…snuck down stairs to the shop. Decided to joint the rough edges of the rest of the blanks for the raised panels….

One edge done, times 11….while doing the other edges, 2 blanks at a time…

Noticed that some edges were not lined up, and some blanks were wider than the others…set up the rip fence, run the edges through….now, all 11 are the same width…all edges parallel…good to go, right?

Until I happened to lay panel #1 on top of the rest…

This may be a problem….ooops? About a saw kerf was taken off both long edges..

Almost there…ran a jointer….to get things better..

Then had to re-do the rebates….reset the saw, fence and all…Stanley 45 to clean the “new” rebates up…
Test fit showed I now had two “fat” bevels…we have ways…

The #62 works to fine tuned things…IF the grain allows….otherwise, you get tear-out. wash finally able to do a dry fit of the “fixed” panel, and a couple rails…

Made a mess on the shop floor, again…

Just imagine what raising 11 more panels would do….
Going to try to get a little done, today…..may just hide out in the shop, all day.
Film @ 2300hrs….stay tuned…

Ahh, I love the sight of late night mistakes 8^)
You can probably count the number of LJs on one hand that haven’t seen this!

My most recent was walnut veneering a large number of panels then sawing them all 1” too short.

Nice save I must say and you have a nice, sharp plane out of the experience (but now is probably due for another tune-up!
