I didn’t get as much done tonight as I hoped. Had a honey-do to do first and then I had to stop and resharpen the plane iron on my no. 8. I was using it on my shooting board to trim my drawer front to length and it just wasn’t cutting it (pun intended). But after a few minutes all was well and I trimmed the front board enough so it would fit into the lower compartment.
I had just enough poplar for the two side pieces. They’re rough cut to length but still need to be ripped to rough width and squared before beginning the side to front and side to back joinery.
I’m hoping to knock this drawer out before the weekend is over. But I’ve never made a drawer before so I’m crossing my fingers. If it’s cold where you are these next couple of days, be careful and stay warm.
