    Second 2 hour session is done..I'm whopped....and a bit out of shape, it would appear....
    Both glue ups came out of the clamps...Pine was easy to plane flat...the Ash?
    Plane Pine, Ash grain.JPG
    had to come in from the other direction....next A couple corner joints...
    July Project, corner joint.JPG
    Case side to the case bottom connection...Back of the case used a little different joint..
    July Project, back panel's joint.JPG
    Next was a dado ( or 10..)
    July Project, lower divider.JPG
    Goes between the upper and lower drawers....
    July Project, 4 dado clean up.JPG
    To (almost) match the 2 dados in the bottom of the case ...
    July Project, 4 dado clean up.JPG
    This got 4 dados...was a bit thin...
    July Project, kind of thin.JPG
    More dados...lots of parts getting milled...did a big dry fit,,,to see how the back will fit to the case...
    July Project, dado lay out, again.JPG
    It didn't...because I needed two more dados milled....
    July Project, enough dados.JPG
    I think that should do it....
    More to come...stay tuned

    Dados..make a few cuts with the tablesaw ( depth and width ) then clean them out with the 71-1/2
    July Project, lay out work.JPG
    This is the plywood panel for the bottom of the case...lay out line were correct...cuts were on the wrong face....design change! there is now a slight step at the bottom of the case.
    July Project, dado work.JPG
    Ooops. No biggie.
    July Project, dry fit fight.JPG
    Arrow points to an Ash filler strip that will cover the pine edge...Dry fit to also cut the dividers that go between the drawers...why the double dado above...Ash panel for the compartment floor also has a pair of shallow dados....Around the top, will be Ash...so...had to size 2 strips to about the right size..
    July Project, Ash trim fitted.JPG
    One in Front, and this one in back ( better to grip the hinges for the lid)
    July Project, dry fit, back.JPG
    This is going to be...."fun" come glue up time....
    July Project, square corner.JPG
    Have to keep an eye out for square...once the assembly begins....

    That's enough for one day...I'm whopped. Maybe tomorrow I might get something done?
    Stay tuned

    Took half of the clamps off...and paused while I put them away..
    July Project, half the clamps.JPG
    Nothing flew apart...took the rest of these clamps off. Needed a small part cutter cleaned off..
    July Project, small part cutter.JPG
    So I could make a few parts to build up a face frame....and glue the parts in place...

    July Project, mo clamps, mo clamps.JPG
    The reason the rest of the back wasn't attached today...clamps needed a way to clamp to the back....from the middle of the case.

    I also added the final side to the "box top"
    July Project, box top.JPG
    Waiting on glue to dry, again....at this rate, it will be August before I start on the 6 drawers....
    Stay tuned....

    Back has been cleaned up along with the rest of the box's sides....decided to add a base to the box...
    July Project, needs feet.JPG
    Needs feet for in the front...may get a bit fancy, there....
    Tablesaw was set up to rip parts for the drawers....mainly the 3/8" thickness....blade at full height...
    July Project, not deep enough.JPG
    Bandsaw is still down...how to safely finish this cut....can't access the bench vise....hmmmm...
    July Project, follow that kerf.JPG
    Set the saw blade down into the kerf....about a dozen strokes of the saw later...
    July Project, cut complete.JPG
    Saw lands on the wooden deck, cut complete...problem?
    July Project, too thin.JPG
    Miter saw is thinner than the tablesaw's blade...not a biggie, a few swipes with a smooth plane to flatten things out...

    More rips and cross cuts...working on getting drawer parts milled to size..
    July Project, drawer fronts and sides.JPG
    2 sides per drawer front, and making sure they all slide in.

    Motor on Bandsaw was replaced, today. And, that was enough for one day...

    Molding last night was cut with a mitersaw....90 degrees and 45 degree cuts..
    July Project, mitersaw at work.JPG
    Used a pine backer board....back of the molding did have a rebate( wainscot cap rail)
    July Project, mitered corner.JPG
    Worked from around Midnight last night to around 0100 hrs this morning...
    July Project, lid dry fit.JPG
    Bandsaw is needed to cut a few corners, and make a lift handle on the front edge...
    Waiting on hardware to arrive at my mail box, this week....handles, hinges and other parts...
