That's ok, I know where there are three young backs...and they can haul the dryer out when needed.
Resaw on a 2x4 takes a LONG time. Finally got ONE corner post sized....almost. Needed a cambered jack to level things out, and get rid of any saw marks.....then a Jumbo Jack to clean up after this hungry beasty...
And the Jumbo...
Was trying for a 4/4 thick board,,, wound up at 1-1/8"...close enough. I planed both faces, to clean things up, then worked on the edges...
Made use of both the leg vise, and the Crochet. The BIG plane laying on it's side to the right? A Stanley No. 7c, Type 9. I was looking for the best edge, for the next step...
Same Stanley #45, same cutter, as used on the rails. Plane is running a lot better now. Once the edge was done, I laid out where the bottom rail would go.....and made another saw cut...
leaves a 1" x 1" pad to sit on the floor. At the other end of the angled cut, is the bottom of the bottom rail. Debating on whether to do any round-overs there....
One down, three to go. Also need 6 more rails done....but, I do have all week to work on it, right?
Still trying to find the ranges of the camera settings.....there is only a "Macro" and a "Micro", there is no in-between. Anything closer than 24omm is in the Macro range...Micro is way out there @ 1.5m.........Not sure I have THAT much room in the shop...so, maybe a few pictures will not be quite as sharp as others...work in progress, just like this dresser build.
After a resaw took forever to complete, and all the squealing of the blade.....I went out today and bought a new blade for the saw.....80" long,6tpi. I am kind of limited on blade choices here. Either the ones at Lowes, or....drive 35+ miles to a Sears store.
Mil. ID got me a 10% discount at Lowes. I also priced the lumber for the drawer parts.....YIKES!! Gold-plated Pine? I think I will give Menards some business when the drawers parts will be bought. No discount, but, much better prices..
Need to get something done today, getting so attached to this computer chair, I may start putting down roots....
Let me know, I have some short pieces of pine in my off cut pile...
New blade is now on the saw. While taking the old blade off, I also found a chunk of a 1/4" wide blade, wedged in place.....
Used the Stanley#358 to cut some blanks to size, from a 2x4. Made a bunch of resaws on the bandsaw today
Now have two corner post cut, and one about done. I also got five more blanks resawn to size. Was able to try a chisel for a bit.
But soon decided a Plan B was needed.....so, I laid out where the rest of the rails will go
I'll make a stopped dado where the tenon is, and wind up with the tenon flush to the sides of the corner post. Need to start with a few hand planes next, as I have a bunch of parts to joint and smooth out..
And maybe get something built? Managed to get 2 hours in, will see IF I get back down there anymore today.....

IF there isn't a creek running through the shop ( had a Gulley-Washer of a T-Storm just roll through) I might get a bit more work done, after Lunch. O "Daylighted" the mortise, kept the scrap piece, and glued it in place. Rail now sits where it is suppose to go. I also chiseled out the nexr two stopped dados. So, for this morning's schedule of work...three more Dados need chopped out, 5 rails need planed S4S and the 45 ran along one edge. Well, maybe both edges on some. Second Stile needs S4S and the 45 ran along one edge. A rebate will also need to be done, to house the back of the dresser. Not sure how much will actually get done, but that is the plan.
As Boris would tell Natasha: "Of course I have plan, they don't always work out, but, I always have plan"
Kind of a long reply, might need to do two...here goes ( I'm on Dinner Break)
Made a few chips fly, today..
Digging out to house some tenons...
Why the space at the end? Well, when I trim the rail to fit..
By clipping the corners. Then slide things together, and clip the stile side of the joint to match..
Will take a bit more fitting. Not quite a Cope & Stick, but will do for now. Got a few parts done..
But had to stop. needed to make one more rail.....
And cut more tenons...
Then decided to just grab the squares and a Stanley #5-1/2 plane, and surface the rest of the parts I had on hand.
I WAS going to do the other corner post S4S ..but...decided to take a break instead. Maybe after supper?
I can plane this 42-1/2" long plank down? Might take a while....stay tuned..
went to Menards today. I now have enough pieces to at least make the case. Not sure about the top, yet. Once the case is done, then I can start to build some drawers for it.
Other supplies have been laid in...new bottle of Elmer's, a few packs of screws, and a few packs of sandpaper, since they were on clearence. Might go and hide out in the shop, later today. May need an Olde Pharte Nap, first. Need to rest up, after all that shopping today.
Again, keep us posted with pics. Andrew P should be sending you a PM, going to try to ahve a Columbus Neadner get together next weekend.

Jointer plane to smooth out corner post number 2. Then a little work with the sash cutter..
Got the corner post all set for dado work..
And transferred all the markings to the new board..
I also finished up the rail work on corner post number 1. Next, I have to mark the tenons on the rails where they go on the #2 post...

Spent some time at the bandsaw, trying out a jig for the resaws. A tune up was also needed. Seemed to work better than before...
Jig is just a 1x6, with a point cut on the end, point goes right at the tooth line..
And...maybe someday, I'll get good at doing these cope joints...
maybe..someday. used a junior jack plane to shoot some end grain..
As for that Junior Jack plane?
Millers falls No.11.....the angled cut is for a foot detail on the bottom of the corner posts.
Saw left a lot of saw marks, and wasn't quite straight. Stanley #60-1/2 tried to correct it, but chattered a bit
Now smooth as glass. Just enough weight to the Junior jack, no chatter.
the resaws today were to make the last of the rails. Still need to cut and resaw the other two corner posts. I intend to at least get ONE side completely done, before doing the other side. Bought a bunch of 1x2s today, to build webframes and face frame parts with. "Kickers" will come from scraps that are being resawn off. Picked up a few packs of 3/4" long screws, and a new bottle of glue. hate to get halfway through a glue up, and run out of glue.....
maybe when I roll out of bed in the morning, I can wander down to the shop...and at least try to get something done? We'll see.....
Well, I AM up and moving around.....still not fully awake. Maybe after a Mountain Dew, I might head to the shop......what's for Breakfast?
Looking like a lot of chisel work to be done today. May have to strop the chisel beforehand....
We'll see how this goes, today.
Well, 4 hours in the shop. Had to chop out 6 places to house the rails in
Once I got all of the spots chopped out, I could do a little assembly work..
Had one "bad spot" to work on..
Of all the places those knots could go...why here?
Sharp chisel, and a good backsaw. Not worried about that overcut, as that area will be removed, anyway.
Screws and glue to assemble, had to clamp things tight, and still had a few gaps.
Figured out a couple rails were trimmed a bit too much. Will correct for that on the other side's build. Plywood panels are just sitting in place, no glue or fasteners, yet.
I am plain tuckered out...
IF I can find Mr. Gumption today.......I might start in on the other side of this dresser build. Have to keep an eye on the rails this time, as two shrunk on me on the last set. Trim here, trim there..sort of thing. Once they are all made, no more trimming will be done. Will try to get 6 rails all the exact same length.
For the Crew from Columbus,OH....any saturday is fine with me.
Since this is getting a bit long-winded, I'll be starting a new one, mainly for the dresser build part of the remodel. Until I can complete the dresser build, I can't get rid of the old dryer. So, I had better get busy...
Thanks for following along on this long-winded story....
