Panelled lid

While I have been riving up the rails for the settle, the parts of the panelled lid for the 'Dennis' chest have been slowly drying. The tenons which I cut a few weeks ago have now dried considerably and will be better able to take the strain of being drawbored. Time to groove the framing parts to accept the panels.

And use this scratch stock.

To put a moulding on their edges.

After chamfering the backs of the panels with the scrub plane, a trial fit and then join the panelled lid.

Tomorrow, I will trim the stiles and put a moulding on the edge, probably using a moulding plane.
