The next day my bubble was burst, as it naturally is in this work, when I had to put all the dowels in and check for square and parallel. Not so square anymore and the sides were definitely not parallel. That was a very quiet day. Most of my time was spent sliding a piece of plywood back and forth through the bottom of the drawer box, checking for wobble and tightness, planing carefully where it needed.
Toward the end of the day, it was looking futile and I was back to my whiny old self thinking of ways to get around this parallel business, wanting to change up the design. But then Daniel Zenefski came by, a second year student. His offering: stick to the plan of parallel drawers because "we do Bad Ass work here".
