A little progress

I haven’t done much with my tool chest since getting it home. Last weekend I was able to put a chamfer on the bottom skirt boards and glue them onto the chest. Today I planed the pins and tails flush and went over everything with a smoothing plane. Then I nailed the front and back boards of the skirt into the bottom boards of the chest. As can be seen in the pictures, work has been in the living room which I think the wife isn’t to fond of. I did my best to keep the mess to a minimum and vacuumed up right away. I need a real shop….


About messimerwoodworking

I'm a hobbyist woodworker. I live in a two bedroom apartment that I am fortunate enough to have a workbench in. Hand tools, lumber, time, and hopefully some acquired skill will produce some respectable furniture. We'll see...........

    I use my sawhorse for planing like that all the time. Looks great!
