Storage Chest Part 1: End and Front/Back Assemblies

In this video, well be creating the end assemblies and the front and back assemblies for a storage chest. The tools needed are: wood, miter saw, table saw, pocket hole jig, jig saw, drill, drill bits and wood glue. To begin we will first start with the end assemblies that consist of a top rail, bottom rail and end stiles. Cut the top rail to width on table saw and to length on the miter saw. You will notice that the bottom rail and end stiles have curves. Using a grid system transfer the curves to the wood. Next cut the end stiles. Cut to width on table saw and to length on the miter saw, then use a jig saw and cut the curves out of each of the pieces. It is time to assemble the 4 pieces together. Drill the pocket holes with a pocket hole jig, then glue and screw the pieces together. Copy this procedure for the other side. Creating the front and back assemblies are essentially the same as the side pieces. Because the front and back are longer, you will need a center stile to act as a support rail for the middle of the front and back pieces. Just as before use a pocket hole jig to cut the screw holes, glue and screw into place, and you are done! For the next video in this series visit https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZIzockuTSms.
