    May have another "scraps" Project to work on..

    Mainly for a July Project. Have several 3/8" thick by 5" by 5" squares....and a pair of 3/8" x 6" x 12" slabs....and a stack of 3/4" by 1 x 3s.....may try a small frame and panel chest?

    Stay tuned...( The Boss "needs" to go to Kroger's this morning...)

    A little drier today...had Laundry Detail, too.....and showing a roofing contractor around, so he can work up an estimate on a new roof. Also a trip to the Bloodthinner Clinic to get a finger poked....and even made a bit of sawdust....goal being to work out all the "Bugs" and get one of the long sides dry fitted up....

    Panels were NOT flat....but too fat along one edge...
    Used the Stanley No. 358 Mitre Box to trim frame parts AND panels for length. And even made the shoulder cuts for 4 tenons.....cheek cuts were done on the bandsaw... and fitted with a SHARP chisel.

    Added the Zero Clearance Overlay to the tablesaw. Frame parts are too small to jig up so the Stanley 45 can safely mill some grooves.
    F&P Box Project, ready to groove.JPG
    First set of passes to set the width of the groove. Frame parts are 3/4" by 3/4" square...and they WILL fall down into the saw, without the overlay in place. Blade is set about a 1/4" above the overlay..
    F&P Box Project, 1st setting pass.JPG
    These are the second set of side frame parts....a reset of the fence to saw the center 2 strips out....time for the dry fit..
    F&P Box Project, DRY fit, no glue, yet.JPG

    The stiles on each end....are 1" longer than the side is wide...more like a "foot"...I removed the sides of the groove below the bottom rail....with a small curve. Will need to match THAT when the end frames are made. May need a double cut. Plan right now is to glue this first side up, and try to get the other side to match it....and glue it up.....THEN I can work on the 2 ends. Fun will be when I start on the lid...

    F&P Box Project, edge needed jointed.JPG

    Not all the parts were 3/4" square....or completely straight....we have ways....called a Millers Falls No. 15.

    Stay tuned

    Took the side apart, cleaned up a few spots that were too tight. Then the real fun could begin (Like herding cats) to get it all back together, with the grain running the correct direction....and glue and clamp it all together...without cussing too much..
    F&P Box Project, side 1 glued up.JPG
    Between trips to the Laundry and upstairs....and then back down to the shop to unload and load a dryer...worked on side #2
    F&P Box Project, parts for side 2.JPG
    Beveled the edges of the panel for a better fit....cleaned the bottom of the grooves, too..
    F&P Box Project, groove needed cleaned out.JPG
    Had to lower that cutter WAY down. Then trimmed the two end panels to size..
    F&P Box Project, end panel trimmed.JPG
    Then had to flatten the panels...
    F&P Box Project, Busy Bench.JPG
    A bit of a "Busy Bench"....might get something done, tomorrow, eh?

    Stay tuned..

    Side #1 is out of the clamps, side #2 is about ready to be glued up...
    F&P Box Project, side 1, side 2.JPG
    Needed to mill 4 tenons, clean a couple grooves, one rail was out of square..
    F&P Box Project, end not square, nor edge.JPGF&P Box Project, check for fit, side 2.JPGF&P Box Project, tenon test fit.JPG
    Before any glue or clamps could go on...
    F&P Box Project, stage 1.JPG
    Used the vise as a 3rd hand, get one end clamped up...gently move this onto the bench..
    F&P Box Project, stage 2.JPG
    Then set this mess aside ( while I transfer clothes from the washer to the dryer) and start on milling parts for the 2 ends

    Stay tuned..

    Road trip this morning...maybe this afternoon or evening before I can get TO the shop....then there is that..MONDAY thing....anyway...

    F&P Box Project, end panel trimmed.JPG
    Trimmed the second end panel for length....figured it was also too fat, so..
    F%P Box Project, end panel too fat.JPG
    Millers Falls No. 15 at the diagonals to thin it down a bit....left it a bit rough around the edges, so..
    F&P Box Project, end panel needed smoothed.JPG
    Millers Falls No. 9 to smooth things out.

    End panel stiles: Not enough material to do a proper T&G connection...
    F&P Box Project, matching curves.JPG
    That with a tongue added, most of that curved foot would be gone....not enough room to mill the matching groove, either. Have to also match the front/back stiles' curves too..
    F%P Box Project, matching curves, both ways.JPG
    Leaves a square profile...

    Stiles and rials for the 2 ends were run through the tablesaw on 2 sides...to make them all 3/4" square......Then reset the saw a couple times...now all the parts have a groove for the panels to sit in.

    Waiting on side #2 to cure out. Then see about tenons ( 8! ) to connect the 2 ends up into a pair of glue-ups...more herding of cats.


    Legs are achy, and crampy....might have done a wee bit too much over the past few days.....Uncle Charles ( Horse) even tried to do his "Wake Up!" thing this morning....up too early, this morning...may need a nap

    Stay tuned...

    "Yes", the lie came easily off his lips, even if he knew nobody would believe him!

    Details...sometimes things don't look quite right to my eyes..
    F&P Box Project, leg's too fat.JPG
    Like when a leg is too fat/bulky....I used a T & G Joint...both to help with a glue up, and, skinny the leg down a bit..
    F&P Box Project, mill a tongue.JPG
    Mill a tongue on the end assemblies....can't go very deep, though...
    F&P Box Project, Dry fit, topside view, T&G.JPG
    Don't want to cut into the other T&G joint....stay back a little bit..
    F&P Box Project, dry fit, end view T&G.JPG
    Doesn't look quite so fat, does it?


    Other end is NOW in the clamps...was like wrangling a LARGE herd of cats...
    F&P Box Project, glue up, End #2.JPG

    Chasing parts all over the place....finally got them into the same place.

    Cutting parts for the lid's frame..
    F&P Box Project, cutting frame parts, lid.JPG
    Need 2 rails..
    F&P Box Project, rails for lid's frame.JPG
    And, 2 stiles...
    F&P Box Project, stiles for lid's frame.JPG
    Had to clean up one Tongue..
    As it was a bit too thick (fat?) in the middle....Stanley No. 71-1/2 to level it down...

    Waiting on the second end glue up to cure...and then mill a tongue on it...THEN see about a glue up of the box?

    Stay tuned....anyone want to stop by and help out?
