« Part 6: Side #3 clamped up, start of the webframes Part 7 of New desk for my computer series Part 8: A little assembly, another design change »

Between errands, and a trip to the Blue Borg ( Lowes) for some lumber…

Needed 3 more 1×2 x 6’ and that 1×4 x 4’ The 1×4 is for later…needed to cut 9 more stiles…to go with the 5 I already had..

Already had enough rails. Had to rip all the parts to width…as soon were a tad wider than others..

Ok, 10 stiles needed a 1/4” wide, by 1/2” deep groove milled….Was easier to do on the tablesaw…

Then, to attach the rails to the stiles, rails needed tenons…

20 tenons. Now, since each webframe is attached to the sides of the case with screws through the stiles..needed pilot holes in the stiles….easier now, than when things are assembled…so, a countersink was made, to allow a bit driver elbow room…

Not all my drills have cords, or batteries…then an electric drill, still set up from an earlier job, to drill a pilot hole..

Then a chisel to clean things up. Then, some glue ( had to clean the bottle’s tip out) a box of 5/8” nails, and a square….for a little assembly….glue on the tenons, 2 nails per joint…check with a square as I went..

Some of them needed a clamp to pull parts tight…that gap thing…one done..

stash it over on the tablesaw, out of the way, and build 4 more….

before all of this….I needed rebates made…reset the Stanley 45…to mill a rebate on the back edges of two side panels…

To allow the plywood back a place to sit.

One both sides were done, clamped them together, and stash them out of the way…

Then I had room to work on the webframes.

need to go back to the shop, today, and add kickers to a few of the frames, to keep drawers from tipping down, when they are opened. Then, maybe a little assembly work?
3 hours of shop time, yesterday….wonder how many today?
Stay tuned…
