Here is a shot of the drawer box of the manuscript cabinet finally assembled. The corners are all reinforced mitre joints so the parts all had to come together simultaneously. I used “Titebond” extend glue which gave me a bit more time to get everything aligned before the glue set , although I still had to move like hell. (I hate using epoxy…even though it gives you lots of time to get things right)It required 45 clamps to get all the seams tight.
I hope this is a good enough answer to all of those who have visited my shop and asked if I really need all those clamps!
