Sometimes I get a little impatient in my woodworking. Case in point, a random dovetailed pine box I had always meant to section off for nail and screw storage. Instead, it’s become a rabbeted and nailed box.
But I started nailing it together before I cut the rabbets for the dividers. Lucky for me, I had a stroke of genius: make a single shelf (for a drawer) and hang it on the wall. And what do you know, it not only fits console game cases on the bottom shelf, but the drawer will be large enough to hold console game controllers.
Since I had already nailed on two sides before I started cutting the rabbets, I couldn’t use a chisel other than in the vertical position. My solution: use a block plane blade. Surprisingly, the joint fits tight enough for the application.
I will post some pictures of the finished project when I’m done.
