In this episode, Paul fits the tenons individually to guarantee that perfect fit. Then he moves on to the glue up.
Paul walks you through the process of layout, cutting and shaping the hooks, and then cuts the tenons ready for fitting. To finish off this episode, we radius the fronts edges of the shelves.
The shelves are cut to length using established patterns. Squaring, trimming and planing the final trim ensures that all three shelves are exactly the same.
We must now create the housing dadoes and grooves to receive the lower shoe shelves. We will shape different points to remove the blockiness and enhance the overall appearance before we glue up the frames together.
The cross rail for the backboards and the housings for the lower shoe shelves ultimately unite the two end frames.
In this episode, we engage with the long tenons which tenon the front rakers into the back posts, and also the lower mortise and tenons that make up the two end frames.
Paul begins this episode by first establishing the angles to the front raker and the bottom rail that unites the raker to the back post.
A brand new project. A brand new design. Some complexities, but nothing too much for you because we give every single detail you need for success.
