Next up is the all the jointery, first the bottom of the case sides and the case bottom are assembled using half bind dovetails cut into the case sides. The dovetail pins are cut by hand, then as a tip we borrowed from Glen Huey we remove much of the waste with a forsner bit in a drill press, then chop out the remaining waste...

 

The front moulding on the bottom of the case it then jointed to the front of the case bottom with the signature Boston giant dovetail joint..

The case sides then receive a shallow dado and finally the dovetail sockets for sliding dovetail for the drawer blades (aka. dividers)..

Finally the top of the case sides receive the signature sliding dovetail pin that will secure the top of the case to the case sides..
