    W.I.P. - Blanket box project!

    I have made this blanket box before, using a plan from NYW . I use my cabinet door set to make 4 panels, butt join them with biscuits. This time I wanted to use a lock mitre corner. I find out now I should have ran lots of scrap past the lock mitre cutter to make some strips for gluing the pieces together, those sharp 45's need a scrap block with the lock mitre cut in it to give the clamp something square to push against. A few pics of my progress so far.

ID:	51260 I had to use some extra wood to keep my end panel flat. Seems my cabinet door cutter set is not 100% matched and the joint tilts under clamp pressure.

    Looking good Bryan, I have been meaning to build a couple of these of a while now. Maybe this will get me in gear.

    Looks great so far!

    I've got one of those lock miter bits for my router. I really need to get it setup and use it one of these days. Looks like you nailed setting it up

    those lock mitres are sweet bryan,, i have used them for some time and once you get the set make a template block for quicker set up next time..they are very good at straightening out a slight curve in a stile as well..

    as usual, your work is crisp and and I know that finish is going to look rich and beautiful.
    Can you please show me how you are joining the side panels to the front panels?

    Very nice work Bryan, always a pleasure to see how you do it. Thanks very much for posting.

    BTW strike one up for the Shaper versus router argument. You da man.

    Thanks so much for taking the time to post your projects. I really enjoy watching you go through the various steps. I've got your threads to go back to when I finally make someone (who's been asking for awhile) a blanket chest. Great progress so far. I think between you and Larry I may have to try a lock-miter cutter of some kind.
