« Part 4: 2 more corners, last rebate, and other things Part 5 of A NEW, Improved Saw Til series Part 6: Clamps came off, moved into new spot.. »

Ok, last corner…aka Corner #3…worked on the pins first, again…got those done….Craig needed some 80-20 parts cut to length….found out the carbide tipped tablesaw blade worked just long as a wood backer was used…last corner tended to chip out…with the wood sitting there, no chipping. Then cleaned everything…..lots of “silver” specks all over the place….

Back to the tails…

Stood the Pin Board straight up, laid out the cuts for the tails…trying to get that fancy corner to come out…

Chopping from the outside/show side first…go about halfway need to get greedy here…leave a bit out on the edge…then flip the board over…

Still trying to get that rebate corner trimmed right….tried a dry fit…had to trim a few pins for a better fit….

Ah-yep….corner broke out…rest looked good. i filled a big crack in that knot, too…while waiting on the glued up corner piece….Cleaned up a bit….

Decided to dry fit the entire case…as in the four sides…one corner slid right in…the others took a little more persuasion …

Gonna be a biggie….got out a couple pipe clamps, to preset them for length…and a clamp to hold things ON the bench…

Was looking for gaps ( found a few) and how a caul will help out..

need to fix them gaps…one other task was done…saw holders are done..

Will be enough slots for 14 saws….was ganged up, so when I cut the slots, top and bottom ones will line up..

Blade all the way up….run each slot…had a wood block as a gauge to set the spacings.
Let all this sit a while…and me…...thinking on them gaps….

later, went done to the shop…took apart the dry fit…..and fixed every gap. Except where the board is cupped a bit..cauls will un-cup that. Then, place one side panel across the bench, and clamped it down..

Dado locations had either already been laid out..or, after the first side was done, the second side was laid out to match the first set….Bevel gauge to get the angled dados to match…anyway, knifed the walls of the dado, and chopped a square hole..

18mm chisel. Square hole is for the toe of the backsaw to come out in…makes it easier to saw the dado’s walls…

Saw down to the level of that rebate. Next, same chisel and mallet…

And pop most of the waste out, and square the walls and corners…then

Fitted a 1/2’ wide cutter to the router plane, and cleaned and level the floor of the dado…

By the time I got done with this one..I had all four dados done. I also grabbed the Millers Falls No. 11 out of the plane til…and bevel the back edge of the top saw holder…so it matches the plywood back. Used the bevel gauge to set the bevel, combo square to mark a line, and just shave away until the bevel appeared….then, swept up all them chips and shavings on the floor, and THEN called it a night

Monday…shop is closed for today…Honey-do list takes over

Maybe tomorrow a glue up? Stay tuned…
