A project in Maple
#11
  
Had quite a bit of Maple "leftovers"  from the last couple of builds...
   
And a glued up panel..
   
Decided to make a "Blanket  Chest" out of the pile..
   
Ripped a few down to make a few stiles and rails...
   
Glued a few other boards up into two panels.  I could then cut into two blanks per panel, to make a few raised panels
   
To go with the frame parts.  
Stay tuned....front of the chest was worked on today.....wasn't "pretty" but.... Uhoh

Dry fit #1 Rolleyes 
   
trying to get the top and bottom rails fitted....
   
Mitresaw to do a few shoulder cuts.....cheek cuts were done on the bandsaw.. Rolleyes  
   
Stanley#45 to plough a groove or two..then chop a mortise or two..
   
Did a few of these dry fits....and found out the panels were not quite right...1/8" off in length and width, and a touch out of square.  Photo is after correcting that issue, and re-doing the raised panel bevels.. Upset 
   
Until the grooves would fit, again. 

Maybe today, I can get a few things done?   Confused Hope to spread a bit of glue around,too...we'll see.
Stay tuned Winkgrin

Chopped a few mortises, and made a few glue ups today..
   
Had to use the end vise as an extra set of hands... Rolleyes  
   
made a few more grooves, with a large plough plane Raised  
   
Had to flatten a couple panels, after they had been trimmed to size 
   
On the large glue up, I added pins to hold things better..
   
Back started hurting,  after just 3 hours in the shop, again.   Had a little better luck, today Winkgrin 

Need to haul a board down to the shop...tomorrow No   Maybe I can get  the rest of the case's sides done Confused 
Stay tuned Winkgrin

Not boring!   Afraid most of us can't keep up with your speed.   Nice projects I must say.

I think three hours in the shop is just about right for a session. 

You don't put any finish on those panels before framing them?

I hate your guts. Big Grin   Only because you have more motivation than me. Sleep  Good job on the build.  Maybe you need to open a youtube channel and video your builds?

Work on the ends....
   
panel was raised..
   
Stiles cut to length and width.    A foot profile was made to match the existing ones...
Used these to determine the sizes of the rails....length and width...
   
Set a jig or two, for the Stanley No.45 to mill a bunch of grooves, to house the panel..
   
And cut a few tenons...
   
That backsaw had other chores to do.   Shoulder cuts were done on the Langdon Mitre Box....cheek cuts were via the bandsaw.

Came back after Supper, chopped a few mortises,  and did the glue up.  Let that sit for the day...

Need to raise the other panel,  cut a few tenons, and chop a few more mortises.   Maybe Wed.  I can have the last end panel glued up? 

Then some assembly....we'll see how things go,  stay tuned

It is always the right time, to do the right thing.
