We'll also make a unique marking tool to eliminate some of the error I was seeing in marking the panels for the rabbets.
Overall, it's an odds 'n' ends episode. Next episode, you'll start with the boxes all glued up (top panel as well) and sanded ready for the outside surface finish.
I chatted with Charles Neil about some goals for the final project's finish for the boxes, burls, and the lower support box in Wengé I haven't yet started (it's just a box! no, really!!) I gave him a run down of the design including some elements we haven't worked on yet and why they are there. He came back with 2-3 schedules for the boxes and some great tips for what I wanted on the burls. I have some experiments to run this week to see what the final finish will be; we'll go over the options and how they worked out, too, in case something that didn't work for this will work for something you are working on.
