Doweling to Pre-finish

Alright. Once the components of the boxes were sized and all it was time for the major joinery of said boxes, doweling. As always I'm using doweling jigs. This makes an "exact" set of holes repeatable.
First I bored holes int he vertical pieces.

Then swap the jigs over to the corresponding sides for the top and bottom pieces... that is the bottom of the top and the top of the bottom ;).
Bore holes on the drill press setting the stop as to NOT bore all the way through!

Made a dry run to be sure things were working out and continued on making the aprons, doing some final reveal trimming and all the edge treatment.

Another check with it all together before pre-finishing. Box!

Then guess what? Yep, pre-finish!
Good old shellac and wax for these guys.

Be back with assembly and such, till then, later on out.
