« Part 4: Last corner done, dry fit, then the glue and Clamp Flash Mob Part 5 of June 2021, leftover scraps of Ash, Box Project, maybe series Part 6: Slips are showing, round-overs done »

Ok, clamps can come back off…SLOWLY..

First 8..only leaves..

The 4 longer ones. I left the spacers inside…as one side wanted to bow in a bit..still, clean up began…

Beltsander to trim down any longer fingertips…smooth plane to level the rest…worked my way all around the outside of the box….also, checked on how well the grain flowed around the corners…I hope..
Corner #1…

#2 (note the fat finger?)

I THINK this is #3 corner…

Because this looks like #4 corner…

I think…set this mess aside, for now…blanks for a lid…needed trimmed a bit..(too wide)

Bit of a gap in the middle? We have ways..

Joint the two together, so they will match each other….then glue, cauls, and clamps…

Kind of shoots using the bench, for the day….need to reset the rip fence on the tablesaw, again…

Rip a blank down the center…took 2 cuts, as I did not want the saw to eat the blank up….or, throw it back at me..at worst, it might nick the store-bought Pushstick….then reset again…to the center of these two blanks…

Means a different pushstick….I needed 4 blanks to make slips from. The plywood bottom panel will get glued to a wood ledge around the inside of the box….called a slip. They will get mitered at the corners.

Means I need to find the “START” button on the #358 mitersaw…

Stay tuned…..waiting on glue to dry…again.
