Man! In spite of color coded tape, hand drawn in grooves, etc. SOMEONE, I’m not namin’ names, put a groove on the opposite side of the piece. Geez!
So now I have to fix it.
And this is one reason I fell in love with hand planes. For me, it makes this repair possible and fairly easy.
First I squared up the end of the groove (don’t tell anyone, but for long stop grooves, I use a router).
.. using the jointer.
Then the shooting board to trim the ends. Shooting Board – Evenfalls – Picture Frame Shooter shown.
Wee! fun! you can still see it, but it looks way better than a gaping groove.
And .. its on the top of the cabinet, so it’ll be hard to see.
Note to self: when the fit gets really close, put glue in the groove. A good fitting piece will be really hard to get out during dryfitting.
Oh .. and some one tell the cat that we bought that electric blanket for us … not the cat. 😀
