Navy storage bench, slash blanket chest and after sitting down and coming up with a set of Sketch Up plans, it was time to get to work much like any other project that I'm building that's dealing With sheet goods, I start with breaking them down with the track saw and the more manageable parts and then cutting the rest of the pieces down at a combination of my table, and the table saw the one big thing that I've learned while woodworking is that It's not important to have the pieces really all cut to an exact measurement like it doesn't really matter.
If they're cut exactly to the link, you think they should be. The the main important thing is consistency, so by cutting all your parts at the same time, you ensure that all of them are going to be a consistent length and width. You I'm using my little that I've made here for cutting demos and I have to cut a dado into the sides and the front and back to be able to accept. The bottom bottom is made of the same 5/8 material that the rest of the plywood box is being made from for the joinery on this box.
I'm going to be using a combination of biscuits and pocket screws, and here I'm just laying all that stuff out and I want to kind of let the biscuits fall in between where the pocket screws are going to be, and so I'm just sort of laying out Even measurements, taken into account where the groove for the bottom is going to be the biscuits work great for not only adding a little bit of strength to the box, but also they really assist in panel lineup.
As far as getting all the edges flush and what I like to do is just glue them in place, clamp them up and once the glue is dry, I can go back and add the pocket screws to accurately cut the bottom to size. I'm using my combination square here to gauge the depth of the bottom into the sides and the front and back and then I can use that measurement to go and actually cut it down the sides to get a perfect fit. Then I can slide the bottom into place and a little bit of glue and finish clamping and glue enough box for the face frame material on the box.
