« Part 6: Twin through tenons Part 7 of Knitting box series Part 8: Slides, Knobs, Top Separation »

So here I have the drawer pieces all laid out and routed the groove in the bottom of them for the slide in solid panel 1/8” maple that I am going to use. I was trying to decide on solid or ply and thought that it would look better with the solid plus I don’t have any maple ply and I have plenty of the maple solid. I had to make a trip to get the bit as my standard bit set didn’t have one that small (1/8”). I set up a couple of stops on my router table and cut the grooves for the smaller slide in divider panels. All of my wood was too thick to slide right into the grooves so I beveled the bottom of the drawer bottom and the two short ends of each divider bar. I also had to cut the slot in the top of one, and the bottom of the other on the dividers so that they sit nice in the drawer. It’s coming along nicely now. Not too much longer till finish time which is going to be amazing on this box… It’s just so dang hot outside here now and my shop is like a sauna! I have to work real early or real late or I just sweat so much I can’t see what I’m doing. Till next time… peace
