I've been working PM shift this week at the real job, but tonight I was released into the wild a couple hours early. So instead of going home and watching the lousy Vikings get beat up by the Saints, I went to the shop and used the time there. I really just wanted to get the drawer for the Saw Till done and glued and the time I took was more than enough.
I took some pine and resawed it down to a between 1/4" and 3/8". and cut it to fit the width of the drawer, (of course you must remember to add the depth of the grooves to the length you need, don't ask me how I know this and I won't tell you a story laden with expletives, but that was a while ago)
I then took my small thumb plane, what I call my small block plane, and gave a shallow chamfer to the boards so they would nestle into the prepared grooves.I made sure to hide the chamfer on the underside of the drawers. This gives a little stability in thickness without taking up more of the space inside the drawer by raising the bed.
While I had the dry fit together I was dying to see if my designs for the drawer were adequate enough. Turns out they're just fine. The drawer can hold all the smaller accouterments that go with my saws. the set, joiner, guide blocks and files just fine. Even my extra coping saw blades. And there's room for more in the future.
