|Carcase showing drawer dividers|
|The dadoes that are needed|
|Used a stick to locate a knife nick at the front and rear of the side,|
then connected the nicks with a knife line to mark one side of the dado
|Cut the stick shorter to mark the lower dado|
|Marked for dadoes|
|After lots of chopping, finished with a router plane|
|Even though I thought I had chopped vertically, I still needed to pare the walls|
|Got a decent fit|
|Rail (left) marked for mortise, runner marked for tenon|
|I got to use the dedicated 1/4" mortise gauge that I made a few months ago|
|Clamping the rail vertically, checking with a level|
|I also spring-clamped a couple of sticks to the sides of the rail to help align the bit left-right.|
Note the washer being used as the "ring" to align the bit up-down.
|Eight mortises, each about 1 1/16" deep|
And here is the result.
|Carcase dry-assembled, with drawer dividers in their dadoes|
|Close-up of one divider - forgot to mention that the front mid-rails are notched|
to fit over the stopped dado and be flush with the front of the carcase
|The rear of the divider - mind the gap|
Next up: the frame and panel back.
