  1. After the initial fit up of the partitions now I am on to cleaning things up as I go. Poplar planes beautifully. I've been final thicknessing everything with my new drum sander which works great but the 80 grit paper leaves some prominent sanding grooves. They come off quickly in 2 or 3 passes leaving a rather nice ready for finish surface.

  2. Agreed, they add a lot at the cost of a little labor. The wood was dirt cheap, I bought 38 4 foot + 4/4 boards from a local sawyer a couple weeks ago for 1.20 a board foot.

  4. I like the idea of adding dust partitions, I’ve put them on all the dressers I’ve built and see no reason not to and a lot of reasons to put them in, well done

  5. Dust dividers are done, thickness sanded to just under a half inch and panels raised on the radial arm saw. I'll hit them with a smoother for final fitting to the case.

  6. Match jointing a couple 1/2"+ poplar boards to glue up for a dust partition. Woodriver #6

  7. I agree with all the above opinions, but if you're interested in furniture restoration & repair, check out Thomas Johnson's YouTube channel . You can easily spend hours watching the man at work. He's got some great tips & methods for making some pretty ratty furniture look good again. I think the stuff you've got is beyond help though.
