So if you've noticed the two interesting looking lanterns over my shoulder - and you want to know more about how I built them - take a look at my channel and you'll find a build video. So if you're wondering why I built this bench seat in two halves, the reason is it's a little over eight feet. Long and building two independent boxes and joining them together seemed easier than trying to splice plywood, and here is my method for marrying the two halves together: biscuits and glue anytime you're joining two boxes like this. The chances of everything lining up perfectly are basically zero.
You're witnessing the first actual help I've received from the shop apprentice, and he came up with this idea all on his own here. I think this was overkill, but I assembled these cabinets with biscuits and glue some staples, and I followed that up with some screws and if you don't know that is referred to as the hat-trick of cabinet making. Here, I'm attaching an additional fence to the biscuit joiner and it helps balance the tool when you're, using it in a vertical orientation or when you're using it on narrow stock and I attached the bottoms in the same way with biscuits, glue, screws, and nails.
So I add a little chamfer and it just creates a small shadow line that kind of hides the seam between the two boxes. Next, it was time to glue and clamp the two halves together, a couple deep reach, clamps and plenty of glue, and this thing's solid. As a rock, once the two halves were built and joined together, it was time to turn my attention to the building. As I mentioned earlier, the piece is a little more than eight feet wide
