« Part 16: Bored on a Monday night Part 17 of A Project for June.. series Part 18: Trimming a too large panel »

Need to get this collar assembled, dry fit….in order to properly size the raised panel it is to hold…so..tails..

Used the sockets to lay out the tails…tails were sawn over on the bandsaw, leaving the line, by cutting on the waste side….sockets need a bit extra chisel work so the tails will fully seat..

Mark each corner as to what goes where…and work my way around to all 4 corners…



Top one wasn’t driven home, just yet…have to take this all apart, now…and set up to plough a groove..

This will come in handy…worked on the 2 ends first..shorter..

I took the time while the collar was still together, to mark a “B” near the edges…that, I am ploughing on the same edge on all 4 sides…short ones weren’t too bad…but..

The long ones were a bit longer than my arms…had to stop about halfway along, take a step or 2..and push on…

Checking for any high spots….usually right at the start of a groove…then, check how the grooves line up..

Not too bad…groove will be near the top of the lid.

Double check on how the collar will fit the box…then do a pre-set of some clamps..

So I can also get the measurements for the panel to be trimmed to fit…into the grooves..

Hmmm, might need a bit of trimming?
Stay tuned..
