Slogging through some progress on the small joined chest. Here you can see its simple decoration – chamfers around the panels.

Looking into the chest, I have yet to fit the rear panel. The two outer floor boards (white pine) are test-fitted, and after assembly a final tapered board will fit between them. These all will have tongue & groove treatments on their edges.

yesterday I worked on joining the frame for the lid. Today I will put panels in this and the rear section of the chest.

Here’s where it is now. Off I go.
