« Part 5: Building the lid part 1 Part 6 of Cabinetmaker's Toolchest series Part 7: Finishing »

Lid finally finished. Here’s a pictures of the build process.

Dovetailed the lid support to be later attached to the lid panel.

Quick dry fit of the panel and support before glue up.

Final lid glue up.

No pictures of the hardware install, but I built a back support as well using my bevel gauge to let the lid rest on and set the chain as partial support.

And finally I needed a resting place for my panel saws so I built a hand hole holder that quickly releases the saws.
