The main frame joinery is completed, but before we can glue the frames together, we must create the housing dadoes and grooves to receive the lower shoe shelves. We determine the exact widths to correspond to the individual shelves, just in case there is a difference in thickness due to hand planing the pieces. The dadoes combine with the grooves to receive the bottom shelf, so there should be no discrepancy between the levels. The techniques Paul uses are both traditional and unusual. In this episode, we shape different points to remove the blockiness and enhance the overall appearance before we glue the frames together.
