Drawer planing jig
Took a few shots tonight of last night's wee project. I'm going to be making a few drawer boxes out of pine. I decided to go 7/16" thickness on the backs and sides. This is not to save money on materials (I'm resawing 3/4" S4S stock for this), but because it'll make the drawers look lighter, give me a tiny bit more space, and make the dovetailing easier.
I tried using a bevel head screw as a planing stop, but it's not stable enough for me (or vice versa). I wanted something that would hold the pieces securely in one place.
I think you'll get the idea just by looking at the pics. There are a couple of hardboard cams on dowels that can be adjusted for different widths of stock. The oak strips are planed to about 5/16" so I can check my scribe line, and the strip at the end has some fine finish nails nipped off short. They keep the piece flat on the "deck". The dowels on the bottom fit into my dog holes.
That is all
All the best,
