We must fit the sides and centre divider into the housing dadoes and then bevel the front edges to fit the curve of the top section, before fitting them into their respective recesses. We then plough the grooves to take the back panel, but two of the grooves are stopped at both ends, so Paul uses a special technique that is seldom seen. Dry fitting all of the components is critical to the outcome of the glue-up. Walking through a rehearsal reduces the risk of a poor outcome, so Paul makes sure he does a dry run beforehand.
I noticed in the last chapter, but there were no comments about them. Mr. Sellers, how do you like the new MHG chisels?
To those who are building this TV stand.
I remember long time ago how Paul used a block of wood—clamped it down at the end of the piece where he had to plow—as a restrictor, to prevent the plow plane going pass the housing dado.
This may be useful for you…
Paul says: “Yes, that stop works well”
I’ve seen some projects where Paul uses this method to draw a curved line, based on a pre-determined radius.
My question is, how does he find the exact radius he needs? What method does he uses?
I asked Paul and his reply was:
Usually I eyeball a curve, lay it out, and then tweak any adjustment to make it fit until I get the radius I want.
