« Part 1: Back story, and a start up. Part 2 of A Project for March series Part 3: Sides are done.. »

Well, that stack of 1 sorted out…worst of the batch went into the scrap can….the better looking ones were all trimmed to the same length…

Then a bit of jointer work, to get the edges ready for glue…

Set this aside for a few days….selected 2 more boards…

Longest 2 I could find. I did a little work on them, to get them ready for a glue up…edges jointed..

Kept checking for any gaps. Finally..

This will become the back panel of that Desktop Organizer….set it aside with the panel for the lid…

Then found 4 more boards….that I could glue up into a couple panels for the sides….had a lot of jointer work..

Was giving this plane a workout….until finally…one more dry fit..

But…had to wait a day, or two…..until the clamps came off of the first two panels…

Hand was healing, was still a bit sore..

Back was having “issues”, right between the shoulder blades….decided I had about enough, for one day,,,

Will try again, and get the first two panels out of the clamps, and planed smooth…next time I’m on Laundry Detail

Stay tuned
