Something like this.  Notice I also marked out which is the waste  ( X marks the spot) another marking gauge to set how deep the make the cuts...

Then mark the cut lines for the saw to follow...and clamp this in the "anti-rack" vise..:rolleyes::ROFL:

Then clamp the board to the Pine chopping block..

Go about halfway down, and leave a bit on the end, to support these while I chop from the other side...

Pins are done.   Then, stand this up onto the Tail Board...

Sharp pencil to mark things out...usually looks like this...:ChinScratch:

Again, mark which will be the waste.:OldManSmiley:..take this to the bandsaw..

Make a bunch of cuts, but...stay on the waste side of the lines, more of the line I leave, the tighter the fit...then chisels to remove the waste...

And we have the tails done...grab the Pin board, and try a dry fit..

Rinse and repeat for the 4th corner.....then a dry assembly..:ChinScratch:

Until they fit.   Had to get another box out, and set it on the bench...:ChinScratch:

Then built a jig to hold the sides still, at least while I ploughed a groove...

Should hold it... then tried the plane out....:TwoThumbsUp:

Was going against the grain, I guess....  One down, and 3 to go....then....PIZZA arrived!  :DevilLaughing:

Closed up shop, and went to get a bite to eat...3 hours was enough for one day....again. :OldManSmiley:

 

I went out to Lowes, bought a new Thermocouple for the Furnace, and a 1/4" x 24" x 24" Luann Plywood panel....should be enough...:WonderScratch:

 

Stay tuned....:cowboy:
