Next I sanded the pieces 120, 150, 180 grit sand paper. Mostly by hand since there is very little flat surface to use a machine sander.
I need to make 1/4 inch dowels for the pegs which I will put in just after I glue it up. So I cut some mahogany strips 9/32 inch square.
Then I used a lumber pencil sharpener to round the ends so they can fit in the dowel plate and the drill. Then I just drill them into the dowel plate. Makes nice round dowel rods. These are about 9 inches long. This works on short pieces but if they are much longer it gets difficult.
Now I layout all of the pieces in order of the way that I am going to glue it up. First the two sides, then the back and the apron. Then I'll add the two drawer blades and cross pieces.
Glued and clamped. I'll add the pegs tomorrow.
