A few people have seen photos online and questioned why I have left the fingers protruded. I’ve had to explain it a few times lol. I had thought of using a router and a round over bit but figured it would be too much and opted to do this step after the joinery and use sand paper.

I first started using a hand held sponge sander but it was deemed too bulky and cumbersome. I thought of ways and had to run to the hardware store for more paper and stumbled upon this little guy.

I used this in conjunction with a board longer than the width of the panel, with some sander paper attached to get all the fingers on the same plane and have the same profile. This worked tremendously. I tried using the Zip sander first but it was too time consuming and the board worked at removing more waste quicker.

I still have some finesse work to do but it worked a treat.

In case anyone is wondering why the bottom two fingers are flush, there will be a hidden drawer for chisels there. More on that as the project progresses.

Next segment: The top.
