    Nov. Project Fri. Morning, 11 out of 12 done.JPG

    Nov. Project Fri. Morning, not going to br fun.JPG
    As it just might be a problem....that be a big old nasty Knot hiding in thar....

    Road trip this afternoon...Long John Silver's Fish to bring home for Supper tonight...

    Both stiles will need a bit of bandsaw work..
    Nov. Project Fri. Morning, foot pattern.JPG
    After I trace around this pattern. I also need to clean up and flatten the stiles....then we'll see about a glue-up? Side #1 is out of the clamps, BTW...

    Nov. Project, Side #2, side #1 on stand-by.JPG

    Nov. Project, Side #2, glue up.JPG
    THIS one. Had to pull the diagonal back into square..
    Nov. Project, Side #2, diagonals.JPG
    By a BUNCH..
    Nov. Project, Side#2, Clamp ID, please.JPG
    BTW: anybody ID this clamp?
    Nov. Project, Side #2, keeper.JPG
    Spring loaded keeper, and a few notches...too far apart..

    At least the bench got cleared off..
    Nov. Project, Side #2, cleared bench.JPG
    I did have to use cauls at each end....clamps wanted to fold the stiles either up or down...
    Nov. Project, Side #2, cauls and clamps.JPG
    I prefer..FLAT!

    Let this sit a spell..and let ME sit a spell....but...I do need my tablesaw back....maybe in the morning, I can clear it off..we'll see..

    Prepped the stiles...
    Nov. Pro., MONDAY, stiles trimmed.JPG
    Needed resawn to 3/4" thick, ends trimmed and square..
    Runners needed tenons milled..
    Nov. Pro., MONDAY, tenons milled.JPG
    Once they had been trimmed square...Stiles needed grooves to match the tenons...
    Nov.Pro., MONDAY, tenons fitted...JPG
    Still need to mill some Kickers...then maybe some assembly work?
    Nov. Pro., MONDAY, working too hard.JPG

    Working way too hard for a Monday?

    Both sides are now out of the clamps...
    Nov. Pro. Sunday, 2 sides.JPG
    and just chilling, for now..

    Have all the parts to make the 6 webframes...
    Nov. Project, webframes, parts are milled.JPG
    Runners needed both their tenons made..
    Nov. Pro., MONDAY, tenons milled.JPG
    And counter sunk Pilot holes drilled..
    Nov. Project, webframes, counter bores.JPG
    Stiles needed a groove milled..
    Nov. Pro., MONDAY, stiles have grooves.JPG
    Was easier just to mill the groove, than chop 24 mortises..all on the end on the stiles..
    Nov. Project, webframes, saveable.JPG
    Trying to get 7 GOOD sticks to make the drawer kickers with.
    Nov. Project, webframes..bark-a-lot.JPG
    Was a bit of a challenge..
    ...also had to dig up the Hardware..
    Nov. Project, webframes, hardware.JPG
    As there will be nails and screws involved...

    Stay tuned..

    Assembly of the Webframes..
    .Nov. Project, webframes, clamp & hammer.JPG
    Involved these items, and a bottle of glue...and a square...glue on the tenons of the runners..square to set the runners into the groove on the stile...and then the clamp to pull things tight.
    Nov. Project, webframes, nailed it.JPG
    Hammer is to drive a pair of nails at each corner...

    Next, center a kicker and pilot hole drill to set up for the screws
    Nov. Project, webframes, kicker countersink.JPG
    Use a square to set the other pilot hole and screw the kicker down...with a blob of glue under the kicker.
    Nov. Project, webframes, 1st one.JPG
    1st one done....4 more like this one...
    Nov. Project, webframes, 5 mainframes.JPG
    One frame hold the Top Drawer's kicker...then 4 for the rest of the main drawers...however, Bottom drawer has a different set up..
    Nov. Project,webframes, bottom frame.JPG
    2 "kickers"? well, these 2 add a bit of support right at the bottom of the case, and support the face frame's bottom trim piece. I have to watch where these 2 go...
    Nov. Project, webframes, set distance.JPG
    So that they don't rub the drill's chuck, while I am attach this frame to the sides of the case.

    Made a mess of the floor again..
    Nov. Project, webframes, messy floor.JPG
    As all 15 parts ( to get 7 kickers?) needed resawn down to 3/4" x 1-1/2" x 14-3/8".....

    Tomorrow, I get the 2 sides of the case to match each other EXACTLY....then run a rebate on the back stile of each...to house a 1/4" plywood back for the case...might take most of tomorrow's shoptime? Still have to BUY the plywood panel 1/4" x 4' x 4' handy panel....

    May sort through the remaining planks..and see about 5 Drawer Fronts? and set aside enough for a bread board top? We'll see..

    Planes were in use today...clamped the 2 sides together..
    Nov. Project, WEDS Cardio, jointing the edges.JPG
    Jointed the edges to match each other...one had a hill about halfway along...flattened that..
    Nov. Project, WEDS Cardio, shavings.JPG
    Stanley No. 8c seems to work just fine..

    Feet needed trimmed to match each other...then the bottom edges of the sides needed to match up.
    Nov. Project, WEDS Cardio, bottom edge leveled.JPG
    No. 80 was put to work..
    Nov. Project, WEDS Cardio, No. 80.JPG
    Then time to mill a rebate..
    Nov Project, WEDS Cardio, rebate for the back.JPG
    Fancy plane? Sargent No. 79 sold by Sears, Nickel plated by Eric Brown..
    Nov. Project, WEDS Cardio, Logo.JPG
    Made a lot of Krunchies..
    Nov. Project,WEDS Cardio, Krunchies.JPG
    Got one rebate done...ran out of gas halfway through the other one..
    Nov. Project, WEDS Cardio, Quitting time.JPG
    Figured that was enough for one day...

    Eric was asking about whether that plane had made shavings yet...look like it did..
    Stay tuned...

    Ok...6 piece have been cross cut for length..and ripped for widths needed 2@ 2" wide, and 4 @ 1-1/2" wide..Plan is to cut 3/8" deep dovetails on each end. and chop the related sockets.

    There is ALMOST enough room in the shop, to tablesaw the back of the chest from a 4' x 4' panel....panel is cut and installed..case was pulled square once one side was attached..

    And THAT will be enough for today....

    Photos?
    A Nov. Project, Thursday, back installed.JPG
    Back panel installed....had to set this on it's front, on top of the tablesaw last night....glue and screws along one edge..rotate the case on the tablesaw..pull the case into square with a long clamp...then attach the other side to the case..

    then return the case to the floor......right leg is a bit crampy, this morning..
    I WAS going to do dovetails for the Dividers...but...
    A Nov. Project, Thursday, 3 dividers installed.JPG
    Cut for a tight fit, glue and clamps.....had to pull one or two frames straight..with an extra clamp or two...

    Bottom Divider will need some bandsaw work...and I need all them clamps for the next 3 Dividers...

    I did miter one of 4 corner braces, and installed it..
    A Nov. Project, Thursday, corner brace glued in.JPG
    These also need a slot milled in them..as this will be where the top of the case will get attached to the case....with a screw & washer. Slot is to allow the top to expand and contract as the seasons change...always fun to do...as I have to reach inside to access those 4 slots...

    Stay tuned..

    I WAS going to do dovetails for the Dividers...but...

    Don't the dividers need to be below the frame like you have them? I've never built anything like this but I hope to give it a try one day.

    Case Work, stile detail.JPG
    This is what I WAS going to do....but, the sockets would have to been chopped out with a chisel..and hope they fit the tail exactly...


    Drawers will be 3/4 overlay...top and ends will get a rebate, but not the bottom edge of the front....Dividers and the top of the frames are to be flush with each other...

    Right now, IF this crampy old right leg permits...the other 3 dividers need to be done....the bottom one will be a bit fancier...
    Case Work, bottom rail.JPG
    Will try for something like this...from a smaller chest of drawers I made..
    Case Work, front is done.JPG
    Last year...
    Maybe have this new one be part of a match set for the bedroom?
    PIP Chester, side view.JPG
    We'll see....

    Steven, I am impressed. I get that I am working a demanding day job and you are retired, but you are busting this thing out in the sort of time frame that makes a retriever dog just sit down on the sand and watch while a greyhound comes zooming back from way far away; after the retriever dog gave up on the outbound chase.

    Whenever I go to the shop to work...that is what I do...work. Other than taking the Photos people seem to want..there isn't any standing around going on. Rarely take a break until I am done for the day.

    Today being a Monday...shop was closed ( unless I get very, VERY bored) but...a road trip to a friend's barn, where my old Delta 12" Lunch box planer resides..hauled those 2 bundles along...they are now within a 64th of 3/4" thick...left a hair to allow for planes...I also took along 2 shorter planks to take any snipe going on, and save the good stuff from the sniper...

    Planer might have been a bit hungry, today..as it took a bite out of one end of a "good" board....seems there WAS a large knot hiding there...was. Friend happen to have a 3/4 x 6 x 6' scrap of Ash in his scrap pile...he threw that in with the rest of my boards...to replace the chewed up board.

    Thickness was checked as we went, not trusting the depth scale on the planer...so..a Lufkin 6" Stainless Steel Caliper, No. 456 was set to 3/4".....most of the boards measured at a 64th over.. figured that was close enough. Bundles and the 1x6 plank are back in my shop, now....and I need a nap.

    Monday means the shop is closed...so maybe tomorrow, I can get back to work? Wednesday I get to stock up on a stash of Pine 1 x 6s..to make the drawer's sides and back with...then maybe a bit of "Drawer Building 101"?

    Stay tuned...
