A single point fence makes short work of resawing the thin parts for the tray cleats. Making the trays involves getting the parts accurately cut to size, measuring directly from the chest. Then we’ll lay out a through dovetail that will be cut using the bandsaw, along with hand tools.

While glue is drying on the assembled trays we can clean up the dovetails on the chest. We’ll show you how to do this a flush trim router bit, and with a block plane.
