Started on the top and bottom case panels. They have dove tails that hook into the sides. Couldn't get the router's pushbar to work with or without the featherboard. I have a feeling the featherboard pushed the board into the hole in the fence. So I made a fence with no hole. Bingo! it worked. Assembled the frames using tongue and groove instead of tenons.

Looking good. "Plans" are just a starting point for better ideas.

Completed the pull out work surface (breadboard) and made the dado groove which rides on the "guide" on top of the upper case panel.

Earlier, I had made the dado along the top and bottom rails of the side panels which accept the internal upper and lower panels. Since the distance to the top isn't indicated anywhere in the plans I made them at 3/4". Later when I made a few practice runs at the dovetail which lock the panels in place I realized that the pull out panel is higher and wouldn't fit under the desktop. Deepening the dado it slides on would only cause the bottom to drag and I didn't want to rout all those top and bottom rails all over again. So I made the executive decision to saw the pull out in half and run it through the planer.

The new thinner pull out work surface and the blocking to allow the drawers to clear the bifold doors.

Wide groove for the top & bottom panel side rails, narrow groove for the clamps and dovetail to hold the front rails. Side and back panels are in the clamps before assembly.

No, restored over 25 years ago from an aqua/black car with a damaged rear quarter.

Cabinet is together. It wasn't easy. Invented some new swear words.

He had hoped to muddle through but the dustbowl out West had for effect that they ate all the horses after they ran out of cows. He had been feeding old broncos and old workhorses to his foxes. He ordered them by the boxcar load. So he came up here on a land grant and had to start from scratch. The photo shows his homestead in 1938. I managed to get a few of the hewn spruce timbers from one of those buildings. Most were built in 36 so 81 years ago. I counted 115 rings on one timber after it was hewn. So that wood is at least 196 years old. I will use that in the door panels. Spruce from one of the buildings of his great-great-grandfather.
Freaking awesome.

Made up the drop-down leaf which hides the keyboard shelf. Also test fitted the pull out work surface.
