« Part 2: trying for one glue-up Part 3 of July, Frame & Panel Box Project series Part 4: Got one end done.. »

Trying to match the 2 up…

With side #1 having “issues” was a hair LONGER than Side #2, and one leg was sticking it’s foot out…Tablesaw to correct both ends, rather than all from one end…Clamped the two sides together….

Ok…Not sure if it is #1 or #2….need to fix that edge….beltsander AND a plane..

getting close….had to work on both ends, BTW. Finally got that chore done….removed ONE clamp, carefully rotated the pair in the vise…to check the top edges..

Not quite a match….we have ways..

Millers Falls No.9 to level the top edges….then the question of feet….and how the feet for the ends are to be milled…They have their own curved profile..

However, when you’d look through from the front or back….the end’s foot would show….so, I needed to mill two curves on those feet..

Like these two. Then keep making sure the curves are on the correct sides of the stile..
More milling..

One end panel was way too thick….jack plane to scrub it down a bit thinner….left it a bit rough, so..

A Smooth plane to smooth it out…..milled a few grooves in all 8 parts…

Here’s half of them…to where I had both ends about ready to assemble…

This was before 3 of the “feet” were milled….

Figured this was a good place to stop….need to mill tenons to fit the grooves, finish the feet…and dry fit

Next episode? Dry fits, and glue ups….about like trying to herd a bunch of cats…

Stay tuned…
