This is looking very nice. No trouble with planing curly grain?

No trouble at all.....well, maybe the Wards 78.....it might need to be sharpened....sometime Uhoh  
   
Got the rest of the panels raised....bench has been cleared
   
Hey, it was Lunchtime....Stiles are being set up for mortises to be chopped..

Soo, where did the rest of the parts go? Confused

   
Try adjusting all  them clamps..with a busted thumb....Side #1 is now glued up. Winkgrin  
 

Might try to get everything ready for Side #2's glue up, tomorrow? Rolleyes

Stay tuned

Went back to the shop for a bit....chopped a few mortises....7 out of 10 are done, and dry fitted..
   
This is a haunched tenon...
   
Fills the groove on the end of the stile...
Dry fits...
   
This one showed a problem happening...that  be a crack at the top of the stile, on the "show" side Angry
Elmers and a couple c clamps to glue the wayward part back into place.  
Chopped the mortises with just a few tools, nothing fancy.. Rolleyes  
   

Maybe tomorrow, I can get the last three mortises chopped out and dry fitted?   Kind of dreading  the glue up Uhoh , not enough "Good Hands" No


Stay tuned..

Got the 1 x 2s to the shop this morning....chopped the LAST three mortises, and did the dry fits Cool 
Then, the "FUN" began.... Upset Rolleyes 

Added a third pipe clamp, right at the center, plus one on each end.   Could not use the vises to help hold things...somehow got everything glued and clamped up.. Cool
   
Added a couple "F" style clamps as well....set it out of the way for now.....I thought.. Uhoh
   
Until you look behind these two sides....I need to use that mitre box, and those 1 x 2s standing up back there.. Rolleyes

Well, I could do a little measuring, decide what width the case will be...and allow the glue to dry Confused

Less work watching glue dry, anyway.   When I can move those two sides out of the way...I might get a bit more done...I do have a "spare" Mitre Box Cool  Might just use it.

Stay tuned

used a mitre box to cut a few parts..
   
Long parts..
   
And not so long parts.. Yes 
   
Reset the saw and the bandsaw to cut a few tenons.
   
Even set up a jig on the bench, to chop a few mortises with.. Cool  
   

Stay tuned to see what all this is for....

Ok, first thing this morning, I removed the clamps from Side#2.....might have other uses for them...
That mortise jig?    I have a three piece jig I can attach to the top of the bench....
   
Look closely, you will see a pair of Visegrips Finger clamps.   I use those to hold the part in the jig.....makes it easy to move to the next spot and reclamp.   The backsaw?   I make a cut along each side of the "open end" mortise, at an angle.   A mallet and chisel to chop down into the far end, then pop out the waste....after a bit, I try a dry fit..
   
Looks good from my seat.. Winkgrin
I then do the other end the same way.  On this frame, I needed a center piece...so I also needed to chop a hole for it's tenons..
   
USED to be a knot in there,too Uhoh ....Chopped the matching mortises in the other rail....spread some Elmer's around, and used a few clamps
   
Ah...this is the frame two drawers will ride on. Cool   Guide in the middle to keep them in line.  There will be a drawer below this web-frame, so..
   
A kicker was  added to keep that drawer from  tipping down  when you open it.  Yes

Not too bad a three hour day?   Maybe tomorrow I can get the other four web-frames made?  Then I can think about assembling the case?

Stay tuned.. Winkgrin

Great work, especially given your smashed thumb. 

Inspiring to see what you're doing with such a fragile digit.
Gotta learn it sometime, so take your time, enjoy, and make sawdust...

Starting to get some use out of it, again.... Winkgrin
   
The way I have been chopping these mortises...
   
After laying out what size and where it goes, I use this little saw at an angle.  Then,
   
I dig a hole at the far end...
   
I come in with the same chisel from the sawn end, and pop the waste out....a bit of clean up, and a dry fit.
   
Do the other three corners the same way, add a bit of glue, a couple clamps.   Then add a kicker.  Set aside until the glue dries.

Got two more web-frames done today....ran out of those clamps, so I'll have to wait to do the last two frames...
Stay tuned ( Aug 15, I get the thumb rechecked....we'll see how it goes..)

Just the highlights from to day... Uhoh
   
Last of the webframes were made.. Yes
   
Both sides were matched up.   Plane to smooth of a few saw marks...
   
Rebates were cut for the plywood back panel.   Web-frames were installed..
   
Finally set the case on it's own four feet.. Winkgrin
   
Then started on some Black Walnut trim pieces.....5 hours or so, in the shop.. Rolleyes
Stay tuned.... Winkgrin

Cut some rails out of Walnut, and added a dovetail on the ends..
   
Ganged up three, and jointed the edges to match..
   
Set the case up where I could do a bit of work( on a Monday? Uhoh No )
   
Case is getting to be a bit heavy.. Rolleyes
Needed up there so I could mark and chop dovetail "sockets"
   
Got to about here....marked out for one more rail..
   
And called it quits for the day.   Was fighting things the entire way.. Upset

Maybe tomorrow, being Tuesday, I might have better luck? Confused Rolleyes
Stay tuned..
