« Part 7: A panel for a door Part 8 of DVD Cabinet of Ash series Part 9: Raised panel, part 1 »

Been a few 1-2 hour work sessions….since the last episode…usually not enough gets done, to make a decent Blog..
So….here we go…Panel for the slab ..

While it might be OK for a certain state to be “high in the middle”, in a slab of wood, not really wanted…
Set the panel on the bench, planing stops to keep it in place…and go across the grain..

Until things were flat…

And, since it would be a few days before I got back to it….

Clamps with cauls, to keep things flat. Milled enough parts for the stiles and rails..

Was just going to use a plane to S4S these….wasn’t coming out just right…tapers all over the place. Uncovered the tablesaw…set the fence a few times…

All the same width and thickness. Even trimmed the ends of the rails….
Next session (2 out of 3?) Needed grooves ploughed..

Tenons needed cut..

These are called Haunched Tenons…so the groove can be filled in..

Then mortises needed chopped out..

1st one done…kept going until..

All 4 were done. Used these to size the panel better…length and width…test fit the frame to the case..

There is a small gap, top and bottom, clearance for the door to open, and close….next up?

Turn this over, make a raised panel out of it….seems I had the panel upside down, trying to decide which way to run the grain patterns….
Raise a panel? Done with handplanes? Stay tuned….

-- A Planer? I'M the planer, this is what I use

Looks like great progress. I like the panel as you have it in that last picture.

Have your say...
