Fitting the bottom panelSean Jun 16, 2016
Finish The Finish
When brushing the shellac in episode 4, I must have laid it on thick because I had some runs to deal with in this episode. I show you how to use some steel wool to take care of them. Plus, we wax our box for a glass smooth look.
Cutting The Rabbet
Since the bottom panel is 5/8" thick, we first cut a 1/4" wide, 3/8" deep rabbet around all four sides of the bottom panel. This lifts the box 1/8" off the ground once installed. A nice subtle feature.
