Love the project and really like the figured wood.  If they could be resawn they would make matched drawer fronts.
It is always the right time, to do the right thing.

Hi, I'm Arlin's proud wife! His brain trma & meds-give memory probs and has pain from injuries, but all is well materially & financially.

Well, yesterday was a bit more fun than watching football games... Rolleyes 
   
Rebates for the back panel were milled..
   
Corner blocks were milled and installed  onto the top web frame..
   
Web frame for the drawer to slide on was made.   Allowed the glue to dry..
   
Cleats for the two shelves were pre-drilled....one hole is slotted to allow the sides to move..
   
Lay out lines, to show where everything goes.   Was all set for a bit of assembly.....but Uhoh 

No screws to be found in the shop, at least the correct length.. Upset   Had to go to the Wall E World store ( NOT paying Lowes'  price No ) so that was over an hour shot.. Mad .then Supper. Yes

had to wait until after Supper was done, before anything else could be done Rolleyes
Stay tuned, for part 2   of the Sunday Funnies Winkgrin
Show me a picture, I'll build a project from that

Ok, Taco Soup Supper was GOOD Winkgrin !   Let it settle a bit ( beans..) then try again in the shop... Rolleyes 
   
Some parts were easy to install.   Pilot holes are a tad oversize, to allow things to move...
   
Some parts took a little more work...got one side done...
   
Flip this mess over, onto the floor.   slap the other side onto the benchtop, hoist the first assembly up and onto the other.   Attach things together....some of which involved a clamp or three, to hold things in place...long enough for the screws to be used...then stand this up, onto the floor ( small work area, gets crowded) slide the top onto the bench...making sure to good side is down....and figure out which edge will be the "front".   Those "issues" resolved... Rolleyes Winkgrin 
   
I had drilled slots into the corner blocks in the top web frame.   Centered a screw in each slot.   attach the top.   Stand this up onto the floor...top needed a trim... Cool 
   
And no screws sticking up through the top! Winkgrin Winkgrin Winkgrin Winkgrin 

Sanded the top smooth enough, for now.    Case will need a plywood back installed...that I need to go out and buy the 1/4" plywood 2' x 4' panel....might be enough left over for the bottom of the drawer.   Once the back is on,  I can start on a face frame....then either two doors ( flat paneled, instead of raised) or..work on a drawer...

Sounds like a fun week coming up?    Stay tuned... Winkgrin

Ok, BTW...how would this look as a drawer front? Confused Cool  
   
About the right size.   As for the assembled case..
   
Standing up on it's own four feet.    Need to add the foot pads...can do those while I have this on the bench, installing a back panel.

Corner blocks?    Simple little blocks..
   
A dab of glue and a screw or two to install on the top web frame....Install the frame in the case.   once the case is assembled and standing on the floor...I drill a mounting hole, then rock the drill front to back a few times, to form a slot.   Top of the case can move a bit,  slots allow the screws to adjust to  top's  movements. 

Once I had the lay out lines done on one side, I had to transfer those marks to the other case..
   
Then a square to finish the lines across.  This is where those rebates come in handy.. Cool 
   
Had  something behind to hold this upright....make sure the ends match.    Make a mark at each line...then move the first side out of the way.   Square from the rebate edge across.

Busy weekend...might be a busy week?   Stay tuned.... Winkgrin

Well, although the shop is normally closed on Mondays....today wasn't one of those days....Hauled a plank to the shop...crosscut it into a few usable pieces.. Rolleyes
   
WAS quite a bit of "live edge"....didn't need any...ripped these down to get two blanks for a face frame..
   
1/2 laps were milled on the ends of the "rails''...
   
Rail for the bottom of the case needed a bit of bandsaw work..
   
Which then brought out a spokeshave to clean away burn marks.. Winkgrin
   
Seymour Smith & Son.   
Part 2 coming right up..stay tuned Winkgrin

Next, stiles needed lines marked...where each rail needed to go...then I could cut the other half of the lap joint..
   
Chisel to clean these up..ran into lowes to buy a bit of Plywood for the back of the case...bought 2  panels 1/4" x 24" x 48".....was a good thing, as the size needed for the back was 25" wide....Hmmm...width became length, length became width....had to make a cut into both panels...at least I'll still have enough for the drawer bottom,,

Set the case up on two benches.. Rolleyes 
   
Not the best, but about all the room I had.   Pipe clamp to pull sides tighter,,,F style clamp to pull things into square,,I hope Rolleyes  
   
Was going to nail this off...but after the first nail did a U-turn...went with the 1-1/8" screws.   Filler strip at the top.  Want to try to install the face frame...but didn't want it laying on my bench, blocking access to tools...can't have that Rolleyes   So....cover the tool well with thin scraps, and just stand it up Cool  
   
Ran into a problem...when check the stiles to the locations of the rails....the drawer runner frame was ..."off" right side was higher than the left side.   Made a gauge block..
   
Cut to match the "low" side....un-hooked the "high side" from the case, use the block to push the frame down a bit, to where it matched the other side...re-attach to the case...level and square, now...part 3 coming right up ( 5 hours of shop time. Cool .28 photos,too)
Stay tuned.. Winkgrin

Tablesaw: was bought by my Late Dad brand new at Sears...Saw is close to 50 yrs young....mitre gauge needed a bit of help, since I was going to do half lap joints on the saw.. Rolleyes 
   
That little stick?    Was the straightest scrap I could find Winkgrin  but was a bit longer than this.   Ran the gauge through from both slots, also set the gauge for square Cool  
   
This way, I get square cuts, which SHOULD produce square joints..in theory Confused   
   
Had issues with the bottom ends of the stiles...blade was trying to shred the waste,,as well as cut it....may use Simon's  "Sawdust & Glue" trick, to patch this up.. Winkgrin 
   
These two drills....one has a 3/8" Forstner bit, the other a pilot hole bit.   I mark the locations for screws to attach the face frame to the case....counter-bore a hole, then a pilot hole for a screw...later, when I get enough room, I'll make a bunch of tapered, face grain plugs out of matching grain oak scraps....trying NOT to burn the plugs, this time around Rolleyes 
   
The spokeshave used today....beltsander couldn't get the job done.   At least this was sharper the the Stanley one I had. 

Tuesday? Will try to install the face frame...maybe start on the doors..or the drawer...we'll see.

Stay tuned...

( feel free to stop in and lend a hand.. Winkgrin )

After Lunch had settled, went to the shop for a while.....face frame is now installed... Cool 
   
Kept the scrap from the bottom rail.....and milled a lot of Tapered Plugs..
   
Pop each out, dab of glue on the narrow end, hammer to install. Cool  
   
While keeping an eye on the grain direction....let the glue dry awhile...come back with an Aldi's wide chisel, to pop the waste off ( bevel down) then flush things up with a block plane.. Cool 
   
letting things cure out for a while.....need some of them clamps back....blank for the drawer's front had height "issues" Rolleyes  
   
Maybe later, I can get this glued up? 

Stay tuned,,,day ain't over, yet....

Clamps came off....plugs trimmed....edges now have round-overs milled.   One of the four feet was making the case rock..badly....trimmed it to match the others.  
   
Sits without any rocking going on..now. Plugs have been trimmed flush.. Cool 
   
There are at least 3 plugs in that photo.    Sides were flush sanded to the face frame, or was it the other way around... Rolleyes 
   
Top has a round-over all the way around.   Sanded then scrapered..
   
"Scrapered"? Confused Cool
   
Yep, this Stanley No. 82.   Used on the face frame, the sides, and the top.   Might have it about sharp, now.   Was peeling decent enough shavings

BRB, have a couple more things to show...like where all them clamps went.. Confused

Ok..feet?   rather than drag bare wood across the floor...nail on pads were installed.. Cool 
   
Those white plastic thingys.   Save the Kitchen flooring, too. Feet themselves also got a round-over, as did the front corners of the stiles, and the cut-outs at the bottom.
   
This is where most of those clamps went....that Pine block is just a caul, had a spot that needed pulled flat.   Let this sit overnight...Tomorrow should be Drawer Building 101.. Winkgrin 

Finish? Confused 
   
Stain first, then the Amber Shellac....then the Clear Gloss Poly.   Might be a while, yet.  

Build a drawer, then see about one more plank of White Oak....for door frames.   Have the 3/8" panels, need the frames.   Then get this base cabinet out of the shop...finished up....the there is a "topper" to build.   Adds a pair of shelves over the Microwave Oven that will be there...have all the boards for that..

Stay tuned..the cussing is about to begin... Rolleyes Winkgrin Cool
