« Part 3: Out of the clamps, 2 sides get together Part 4 of July, Frame & Panel Box Project series Part 5: 2nd End glued up... »

And trying to get #1: End done….

There is a dry fit to fine tune. Had to mill tenons on the ends of the rails. Make sure the panel would fit.

Shows where the tenons will be….then spread some glue, and chase some parts..

It was getting glued up, whether it liked it, or not…..like trying to herd cats…

Meanwhile…

#2 End: Dry fit wasn’t quite right…panel was the hold up…was too fat, a hair too wide in the beam, and a hair too long..

Do the diagonal across the grain…to lower things a bit, and level out one edge….left things a bit rough..

Changed from a Jack plane to a smoother, and smooth things out…

#2 End’s legs get a profile….

#1 End had sat overnight…clamps removed ( need them for #2 End’s glue up…

#1 End …besides needing a good clean up….feet were too …fat…Smooth plane to do the glue joint clean up….

Maybe IF I add a Tongue & Groove joint in the corners….maybe it won’t look so “broad” (fat)..

Took a few settings….Worked on the Tongue first…

First pass on each face….then move the fence away from the blade the width of the blade, and run each face through, again….and one spot that was a bit thick….we have ways..

Stanley #71-1/2, with a 1/4” width cutter. Set to the correct depth, and scrape the excess off…clean up with a sharp chisel….Use the tongues to lay out where the grooves will go….and how deep..

Test for fit…Then a dry fit..

And from the top…

And, you can see why I could only go so deep with the grooves….otherwise, it would cut into another glue joint…I wanted a little bit of wood between the two…

Figure this was enough for the day….need to get #2end into the clamps, and back out again…cleaned up, and tongues milled….before I can glue the box together…

Stay tuned
