Making some stuff for wife and daughter. This is going to be a tote type organizer, by my wife’s design. Something like this:
Start with some half inch poplar.
Knife walls for the first cut.
And the cut…
Plane the edges completely square on the shooting board.
Cut the next piece, use the shooting board. Now we have two pieces exactly the same length.
Now cut the sides, same deal.
Now we have a box.
Surface and edge plane all the pieces. Now everything is flat and square.
Start laying out the dovetails with a divider.
Marking out the tails.
Cutting the tails.
Tails all cut.
Cut out the corner pieces.
Now chisel out the pin recesses.
Clean it all up, make sure everything is straight, smooth and square.
Now lay out the pins.
Ready to cut. But I’m going to call it a night. Not bad for an evening’s work.
