The long awaited glue-up. I'm not going to lie, this was one of the more complicated and challenging glue-ups I've done so far. But while this chest does have a ton of funky glue joints, I was able to sort of reverse engineer the steps to really break the process down into smaller components. This way the process wasn't quite the mad dash you might expect. That being said, the whole process probably took me half a day and about three cups of coffee, largely because I repeatedly had to let some glue joints set before I had room to clamp the next assembly. But in the end, this is one rock solid carcass. Now I couldn't go through every single detail of each joint, so if you do have questions about any of the steps in the process I'll be happy to answer them in the comments section. Just don't blink, you might miss something.
