Record Case Pt II

Finally getting around to posting some more pictures of the record case. The last month has been busy...not much time in the shop though.

I have the lid glued and up and have started sanding it.

The glue-up required quite a few clamps because of the way the top is attached.  The flush look is worth it though.

Here are the two halves of the case.

My first attempt at cutting the dovetails for the lid didn't go well....the marks are the material I was SUPPOSED to remove.

Lower case dry fit.

I am really pleased with the way that the veneered panel for the top came out.  Match planing the pairs of veneer with an angel helped to minimize the visibility of the seams.  I can't wait to put finish on this piece.

Some sketches from trying to decide on the dovetail size and placement.

All of the hardware that I will be using.
