« Part 10: Drawer build, part 1 Part 11 of A Shaker Style Table, 2022 version series Part 12: Monday, busy Monday »

Had to figure a way to hold the drawer side still, while milling a dado..

A stop block and a pair of clamps…score across, then handsaw down to depth….and use the stanley 45 to get roughly to depth…there was an issue with the 45 wanting to tilt a bit…

Used the Stanley 71-1/2 to level things up….couple dry fits…to get the back to size..was to wide in both directions..finally..

Checked for square..

I thought I had a plywood panel on hand….just wasn’t wide enough..grrrrr, quick trip to Lowes, buy a 1/2” x 24” x 24” plywood panel….then size it to fit..

Tomorrow..prep to glue this up….even have a small wood knob, and the proper screws for the corner blocks

Might take a day or two…before any finish can go on…

Stay tuned..
