« Part 13: Clean up, start on lid Part 14 of A Project for June.. series Part 15: More lid work, start on a collar »

When last seen, these 3 panels..

Were in need of a Jointer being run along all 6 edges….as I hadn’t decided which edge goes against which edge…Picked out the showiest plank, and called it the “Center”....

These are 1×6 x 36” planks….might as well get out the big, cordless Jointer….plane.

Stanley No. 8c…

I have a 36” long Lufkin Tinner’s Rule….makes a nice straightedge….checking for both high and low spots….I also checked for the edge being square..

Spent a half hour in the shop the other evening….got the center board all jointed on both edges….then, this morning,,,worked on the other 4 edges…even found some spalt..

May set this edge against the center board?

Center is the one on top…..which left the other plank to joint..

I do both edges, because I’m never sure which edge will go where….was a very busy morning..

For about half an hour’s work….then the glue, cauls and clamps ( in that order)showed up..

Cauls on the ends helped hold the upper 2 planks still, while I applied the clamps….

Lower joint was more into a “Rubbed Joint” upper was a bit sloppy…..let this sit a day or 2….need to free up the tablesaw, again, anyway….need to mill the lid’s collar parts, to house a large, raised panel….

Stay tuned..
