Arts and Crafts Cabinet #3

Construction of the drawers… First thing first, need to sharpen the planes to do the job

Do I need to use so many at the same time? No, but I like to sharpen them altogether when I could to achieve the scale of mass-productive effort

Marking tails to the pins.  Tail first or Pin first? I am definitely the tail first guy.

Second drawer:

Dry fitting and inspecting any flaws that I need to hide, quietly….  They said, good woodworker is one that knows well how to hide his flaws, I definitely live by this rule of thumb
