Let's Wrap it Up

Flushing the ends of the panels small enough to fit on the slider. Longer ones received hand plane treatment.

Like a stack of plywood. Except ash. Waiting for flattening & face treatment, performed by my beat up piece of crap dewalt palm sander. Where's that Mirka when you need it?

The dark side of the benchroom. I hate violating my benchroom like this again. I've been doing way to much messy work inside the shop instead of my outdoor workspace, way too much. But we've had a hard winter this year, just too tempting to work inside the warm shop.

Surfaces, surfaces, surfaces. Treating the frames with the big guns.

Modified Robertsons screws to fit into the 1/4" grooves of the frames. These will pin the floating panels on centre and allow for even seasonal movement of the panels.

The female notch to capture the screw.

Feeling Groovy

Milling the frame grooves for the panel tongues.

Ribbons of squeeze out. Almost too much glue, but enough to confirm a joint hasn't been starved.
