All Planes on deck

Well almost any way.  Today I was fitting the doug fir tongue and groove paneling into the back of the case.

I needed a tight fit, so I slightly undersized the grooves.  Used my shooting board to size the length perfectly.  Evenfalls – Picture Frame Shooter shown.

Then trimmed the tongue and groove for a perfect fit using the skewed rabbet plane and 3/4″ shoulder plane.

Since I was dealing with individual pieces and not a single panel, I asked Marc (Wood Whisperer) for ideas about how to handle glue up.   His suggestion was to do a dry assembly, attach a backer board and glue in the middle to allow wood movement.

I think it turned out fabulously .. and its starting to look like a real case!
