Step 8: Assembling The Frame
Tools; Pin hammer / Pins / PVA glue / Woodwork vice / Abrasive Paper
This is a great challenge and aims to increase the students hand eye co-ordination and dexterity. Sand what will become the inside surfaces (all surfaces with a channel cut in), this is done now as its almost impossible to do this properly when assembled. Then pre-nail one of the long sides with two 15mm pins, the nails need to go over the rebate you cut earlier (note: you must ensure the nails are not going to emerge in the channel! This will block the lid)
Now use the 76mm end and ensure the channels are aligned, the end sits inside the rebate you cut and pre-nailed.
