« Part 9: Monday? Part 10 of Kitchen Island Project series Part 11: Drawer done, hardware is installed.... »

Had the blank for the door…needed it sized to fit the opening…ends squared, both faces flattened, and a rebate done…

So the edge wraps around the divider. Will get a set of better hinges today, maybe.

Went out and bought a bit of lumber, the other day….a 1×6 x 8’ Pine board ( sorted through 1/2 the rack to find a good one) a 1/4” x 2’ x 4’ Luann panel for a drawer bottom. The Middle shelf gets a 3/4” x 2’ x 4’ pine panel (will cut it down to fit, add the Ash edges, sit one end on a cleat, and screw through the legs for the other end)

Last night..was just going to haul the 1×6 to the shop, and get things ready for today… theory….but..board was a bit long, to just leave it sitting there, across half of the shop….

Crosscut to get a pair of drawer sides. Ripped down to width, kept the cut-offs from that….bead of glue, a couple clamps..

After cutting to length….one at each end of the drawer opening…now have guides for the drawer to follow.

Drawer front needed a tad bit off an edge, to match the sides better. Tested for fit…think it should work.

Then pins were milled..Pins first….

On both ends, of course..

Then used the pins to lay out for the tails…..and then a dry fit…

Then sweep the floor, and close the shop for the night….was a long day.

May try to do grooves, and dados and see if the plywood bottom can be cut to fit….

Stay tuned….
