Using the leftovers
  Re: Using the leftovers by bandit571 (Hmmm, lets see....ha...)
That Plywood back took a few big cauls to get it clamped up.. Rolleyes  
Today, those clamps came off....trimmed the face frame down flat ( BIG bow in the middle Upset )
And decided to add parts for a base... Rolleyes
Still needs a pair of feet in front...

Drawer parts:  That 1 x 4 x 6' was crosscut to start on making drawer sides and backs,,,Wanted the sides to be 3/8" or so thick...set up the tablesaw to resaw thing Pine 1 xs
Blade is all the way up.   I NEED that Zero Clearance Overlay, otherwise these thin parts would drop down into the saw....still had a strip to cut....bandsaw is still down..... 
Ok, follow that kerf!   About a dozen full strokes later.. Cool
Saw makes a landing on the wooden deck....problem? 
Same as the bandsaw.   Tablesaw kerf is a bit biggie..smooth plane can flatten it right out...
More rips and crosscuts....Got the sides made for all 6 drawers, and the fronts sized to fit.  Still need to mill the backs, and work on bottoms for the drawers...

I think that will do, for today...waiting on glue to dry..again..
Show me a picture, I'll build a project from that

That is looking good.
It is always the right time, to do the right thing.

Clamps came off today.....I did 2 one hour work sessions...first was to mill ALL the parts for 6 drawers..
1 hour to rip to each width, cut to length, mill either rebate or dado as needed...
2 sizes of rebates..ones for the drawer backs to sit in..
smaller ones to fit the drawer front's 2 dados....plywood milled to size.  I did check the case for square, too Rolleyes
Took a short break...grabbed the camera, this time....and started to assemble a few drawers..
Some took a few extra clamps.   Nails and glue were also used...and a pilot hole drill..
Mainly the Pine and plywood were glued, and nailed together....Ash front was glue only...
was getting a bit crowded over there...and a 3rd was on the way.....finally ran out of clamps the right size after the 4th drawer..
Too many clamps?   I figure while I am cleaning these 4 up tomorrow, I can get the last 2 assembled..
Then see about cut a lid down to size....

Stay tuned Winkgrin

Clamps on the 4 drawers have been removed...trying to get them fitted...
Can't really shove them all the way in, yet...waiting on handles to arrive..

Decided to add a filler strip to the base...
So I can add the trim to a level playing field Rolleyes 
Tongue &  Groove joint?
Remember,, these parts are barely 1/4" thick... Cool
Lid has been trimmed for square..width...and length...then glue and clamps..
I suppose 3 clamps should be enough? Confused

needed 4 for the last 2 drawers...
About 2 hours in the shop...on a Monday, no less.. Uhoh 

Waiting on glue to dry.....seems to dry faster on my fingers, than the wood Uhoh
Stay tuned..have a "Build a Drawer" coming right up...

Build a Drawer.....have already shown how the parts were milled, time to assemble...
Clean up the joints, make sure the parts will fit each other...bead of glue to start..
Three nails to attach bottom to a side.  Remember, large rebate faces in, little one faces out.   Drawer back is there to steady the bottom while I nail...repeat for the other side..
Back next, bead of glue on three edges...nail to the bottom with 2 nails....circled area will close up, when the sides are nailed to the back..
Then the fun part...the front gets a bead of glue in two dados and the rebate along it's bottom edge....then pressed/tapped/hammered into place...
No nails used to attach the front,  glue alone....and a few clamps...
And let sit overnight.....

All 6 drawers are now either glued up, or sitting in clamps.

Just small drawers, no need for fancy joinery....for a Tool box...

Midnight last night....wasn't all that sleepy...went to the shop to check on the glue-ups.....hour later....
Had reset this a few times...couple of straight cuts...and a couple miter cuts....pine strip as a backer board...molding has a rebated backside...
Glued and nailed in place....did I mention the last 2 drawers were de-clamped, cleaned up, and stashed...? Rolleyes 
Need to work on the lid...
Flatten it out, and trim to final size.....need to replace the bandsaw motor, today.....old motor removed, spare attached...line up the pulleys...usual stuff... Rolleyes
Kind of dresses things up, a bit Confused 

Hardware is to arrive by this coming Friday.....handles, hinges....we'll see..
