« Part 4: Sunday, Part 2.. Part 5 of Using up Leftovers series Part 6: Building drawers »

Little work sessions this past week….was having better luck at the yard sales…
Tuesday…glue was spread…clamps and cauls applied…

More like a clamp convention..

The next day…slowly removed the clamps….and hope for the best..

halfway…nothing flew apart…always a good sign…clamps came back later…

As the last of the storage box’s sides were glued in place…and a bit of the face frame parts…

That also had to be notched to fit….Then the next day….

Between the clamps, cauls, and the mallet…..got the plywood back glued on…and then split one of the sides…more glue, more clamps….let this sit an extra day…

back panel after the clamps were removed….was adding a base to the bottom of the case…had to sand the back flat, too…..and plane and sand the face frame flat…both had a bow in the middle…

Need to mill 4 feet, and attach them..once the clamps are out of the way…again.

Drawers: Need to mill a few parts to size. That Pine 1×4 x 6’ was cut down to something easier to use. Then set up to do a resaw…

That IS as high as the blade will go. Plywood is my Zero Clearance Overlay….keeps thin parts from dropping down into the saw…while I am cutting them. “Plan” was to rip right down the center…and get two pieces the same thickness…~3/8” thick….bandsaw used to be used to finish the slice….bandsaw in need of a motor overhaul..

How to finish that cut?

I let this saw just follow the kerf….about a dozen strokes later..

Saw lands on the wooden deck. Same problem with the bandsaw….tablesaw uses a thicker blade…

A few strokes with a smooth plane should be enough….drawer fronts were cut to size, sides were ripped and cut to finish size…and all the parts were stacked in a safe place…

While I figure out the size of the backs…and the 1/4” plywood drawer bottoms…

Stay tuned…waiting on glue to dry…again.
