Consistently Consistent


With the front apron sliced and diced into all of its different parts, it's time to start putting them all back together. To clean up the bandsawn surfaces of the drawer fronts and vertical dividers, where consistency was necessary (when isn't it?), I clamped them all together and used a square and calipers to keep things happy. After this, I removed additional material from the tops of the drawer fronts (maybe 6 or so swipes with a hand plane) to ensure that when clamping things back together, the clamping forces were directed to the vertical dividers only, and not bound by the drawer fronts.
