and other fellow adventurers
Here goes . . .
the case is done except for the final install of mouth bracing . . in progress and / or maybe TBD
my oversized side 2 fits with about 1/4” overhang all around.
I “even” it up with the bottom mouth piece I and the side A.
clamp it down. Maybe in 4- 6 places.
On the corner of A and F, I trim router along F for 6-8 inches.
It's a smooth tight corner
On the corner of F and and E, I trim router along F for 6-8 inches and along E for 6-8 inches.
It's a smooth tight corner.
In my thread there are some pics of those black plastic angle block things, from rockler.
On those 2 trimmed corners, A/F and F/E those pieces get screwed / secured to the faces of A, F and E. and in effect, keep side B from any other placement except to nestle in against the portion, about 1/2”+, sticking up/ poking up / positioned up past the top edges of A, F and E.
those are my stop blocks for side B placement.
Side B is tight and even with sides A, and I.
The 2 corners A/F and F/E are tight, even and will make side B self align.
From there I laid out the screws to go thru Side B into the interior upper edge sections of panels B, C, D that I can't get to any other way
I will pre-drill kreg holes to go up from the inside of the chamber into side B where it hits on the upper edges of panels B, D, G, H.
you don't necessarily need to have the access panel sizing exact at this point, just a hole big enough to let you get in there to tighten the kreg screws and check the PL3 squeeze out.
Of course many could /would lay out and just plunk a bunch of screws thru side B into all the edges,
I may not be that good a wood bender or it's the DIY OCD/ overkill thing kicking in, .
Hope that makes a picture you can follow / expand upon.
You're gonna F'n love it.
you're not done yet?
