« Part 3: Dovetails and other joints Part 4 of DVD Cabinet of Ash series Part 5: Out of the clamps, a clean up, and some foot-work »

Dados to hold a pair of shelves…

I used the DVD case to get the spacing….thickness of the shelves for the width of the two dados…then knife a line

Mitre saw to saw the walls to depth…

hammer and chisel to pop most of the waste out of the dado…

Then flatten the bottom of the dado with a plane, first the #39 3/8” dado plane, later took the fence off the #45 used a wider cutter, and cleaned things out…
Shelves….one Poplar panel was close to the right size….the other blank needed cut out from a larger plank…then..

Then planed to match the thickness of the other blank…jointed to remove saw marks, until the match each other for width. Dry fit…

So I could cut the panel for the back to almost the correct size…

5.2mm thick Luann. Then, time to add some glue, and reinstall all them clamps, plus a couple more…

Got about to here, needed to lay this mess down, and see how the back panel fits…...not quite..need a little off the sides…

We have ways..Stanley #5….there was a thin “whisker” along one edge, some dummy decided to brush it off my his thumb….and got a splinter in the thumb for his troubles….took a couple dry fits…but finally..

Nailed the back in place…

Added a couple LONG clamps, and let this sit a day or so…Did the case still fit?

Yesterday, the forest of clamps came off the cabinet….nothing flew apart…seemed to sit nice and straight.

Single Brain Cell Sketch Up is now working on a design for a base, and a door….
Stay tuned….
