Welcome to Woodworker++

This blog is intended to be a journal of my progress as a woodworker. Grab a drink, maybe some popcorn, sit back and enjoy a glimpse into my woodworking projects, both failed and successful. Why should you care what I do, or what I have to say? You shouldn't, but just maybe I can keep you from making the same mistakes that I had to learn the hard way.

I spent part of yesterday, and most of today getting the rabbets in the top, bottom and sides. I used my router and router fence attachment to make the rabbets. I also learned how my joining sucks. There were a few peaks and valleys where I had edge joined the boards. I need to do a better job of making sure the boards are joined and faced properly.

I glued up the back panel and let it dry, while I went to Lowe's to get some finishing supplies. When I got back I used my Random Orbital Sander (ROS) to sand all the pieces. I think it's finally ready to glue-up. My only question now is, do I finish it before glueing or after? I don't know either. Time to hit the forums.
