This week I made some cutting boards shaped like Minnesota. They were quick to make because they are just face grain boards which was a nice change from making end grain boards. I also made some great progress on the upper case of the secretary desk. I cut the arches in the scroll board and on the top. I also cut all the dados for the cubbyhole dividers. I go into detail about how I cut all the dado and share some tips for keeping them aligned.
To start things off, I’ll make the panel which will become the sides and top. While that’s sitting in the clamps, I’ll prep the material
