« Part 8: Just catching up.. Part 9 of DVD Cabinet of Ash series Part 10: Rebates, and a glue up »

2 parts? Well, Paul Sellers makes this look easy….but, when there is a pile like this on the shop floor..

Some serious work was getting done. Part one will be about the bevels to the front of the panel…first decide which face is the “inside” of the panel…then set a combo square to 1/2”.

And mark a line all the way around, with the square against to inside of the panel….this will be a “stop line”...then set up a jig to hold the panel onto the bench…

Set up to where I tighten the vise. Add a clamp to keep the panel from “hopping around”....reset the combo square to 1-1/4”, and do a stop line across the face. End grain ends are done first…

Task is to remove the Ash from between the lines, and leave a bevel. Sellers used one of these…

Just a simple Stanley No. 4….mine was even made in England, but it is a #4c version…1st bevel done..

I also used a Stanley #3 to smooth the rough spots. #4 goes at a diagonal across the grain, to reduce tear out at the far end. Same with the #3, just set a little finer. #4 to remove the bulk fast, #3 to smooth it out…rotate, and repeat for the other end..

Ends are done, reset the jig bit, and layout the bevel the long grain sides..

Same as before, with the 1-1/4” line…trying to get that mitered corner effect…can’t clamp the panel down, so, that stick will have to do the same. Time for the jack planes. Instead of a #3 and a #4….I went with a Millers Falls #14, and #11….23” to plane, jacks work better. Plane along at a slight tilt until the bevel appears…

The #11 is like the #3, smooths after the rougher set #14, until the lines are cut…rotate and do the other long edge the same way…

Sweep those shavings up, call it a day/night. Set out a rebate plane..

Because later today, I need to make a rebate all around the inside of the panel….1/4” x 1/4” the panel will fit into the grooves in the door’s frame. Then, maybe a glue up? And maybe add the hinges?

Stay tuned….part 2 later today..I hope…
