New project 5 [Trim ]

After the stretchers were glued in place, I turned the piece over and trimmed the glue blocks, with a chisel, in preparation for trim at the bottom edge of the box.

Here is the profile it appears to be two pieces but is actually one.

I cut the profile on to the  edge of a long piece of stock with a 78, hollow and a round, and a snip bill plane. I then cut the molding off the edge with the band saw.

I next mitered the pieces and pegged them to the base of the case. I overlapped the top of the legs a small amount to help reinforce the leg joint.

Here’s the piece ready for the top and finishing.
