Plate rack shelf and back

Get that router plane again…and get the tongue cutter too…

The shelf that holds the second set of plates is set in a standard dado. My plan of attack is standard as well:

mark with knife
saw side walls
chisel out waste
clean up with router plane

It was a little bit of a tight fit. To ease the fit, I planed down the end of the shelf with the No 3 smoother…perfect.

Before gluing the shelf in place, I cleaned up some tools marks with a scraper.

Then I started work on the back. I used the tongue cutting blade to make all those tongues. Then, all the tongues got a bead from the beading plane.

Here’s a look-see.







Looking good. I think it is time for some moulding.
