Saw Till Glue up

I cut the sides of my saw till to look like .. well, a saw.  At least that's what it looked like to me.  I cut this using the band saw and then used my new Veritas® Low-Angle Spokeshave. Umm ..

Greenlee Butt Chisels and .. I cheated again ..

I made the dados for the shelf in my saw till cabinet this evening.  This gave me a chance to put my Greelee Butt Chisels to work and, man, they did a nice job.
I could have easily sliced the whole 1/4″ deep dado out with the 3/4″ chisel, it cut so nicely.

Party shavings and a rabbet

Finished all the dovetail (except for the drawer).  Now onto the back rabbet and shelf dado.

I used my skewed rabbet plane and made a rabbet (a slot) for the back boards to go into.  I had some left over tongue and groove fir that I will use as the back boards to the case (see picture).

Fun, fun, fun!
