« Part 3: Feeling groovy Part 4 of A box for chisels series Part 5: Flipping a lid »

Floor had been swept..

Much nicer on the feet. Used the dry fitted box..

To help measure what size panels I needed….and then marked out for the cuts..

Not the handiest thing to move around…the Framer’s Square did help laying out, and marking lines, for me to try and follow on the bandsaw ( tablesaw? nah, it is too busy as a storage spot), while trying to follow/leave the lines..

I soon had 2 panels cut out….edges were a bit wavy…junior jack plane to “joint” the edges straight….They should fit right in…right?
Well, a full dry fit was done…just to see…

Well, panel length was good…but..

Panels were too wide…won’t let the dovetails seat…so, back to the vise they go, and get Junior to work..

Want to skin just under 1/8’ off, and still have them match each other…then back to the dry fit

Fit was much better. I also wanted to find out WHERE to make the saw cut to remove the lid, once the box is glued up…fattest of the chisel handles….make sure I mark somewhere on the OUTSIDE of the box, so I can find it, again

then..mark everything as to “Top”, or Bottom, including the plywood panels….

Then the fun can begin….even used a brush to help spread/contain the glue…and a few cauls..

Always fun, when adding 2 cauls, and a clamp, then trying to tighten then all down…with just 2 hands…

Will let this sit a day….

Stay tuned…
