The storyboard is critical to getting the angled mortises correctly laid out. Then the mortises can be chopped and a tenon cut and fit.
We’re ready to make the drawer with dovetails at the front and housing dado at the back. Paul cuts a rebate on the dovetail section to help with constructing the half lap dovetail, then cuts the dovetails to size.
How do you go about adding a drawer to a workbench? First step is to cut the hole in the apron and then build the framework to support the drawer.
Need somewhere to put the stuff of life? This bin can be used for recycling, household linen, kid’s toys and even everyday waste. Great for mastering angled mortise and tenons and using ply panels extending as through tenons in mortise holes to give added strength to the whole.
With the initial fit of the door complete, it can be hinged to the carcass. Then the mirror is cut to size and fixed in place with some rebated retainers.
Paul is now ready to chop all the door mortises using the guide. Then the tenons are individually fit to the mortises and everything is ready for the glue up. Once cured, the door is cleaned up and fitted to the cabinet.
