HW Week 2: Multiples

For our project of multiples I decided to make wooden panels I use for painting. Each panel would be made 11x14. I used 1/4 Birch for the face and Poplar for the bars. During the process I ran into several challenges, displayed in the images below. The first is that 1/4 thick wood is difficult to cut with the saws in the shop. So the faces were slightly off. The second is the 45 degree angle on the saw was also off by a few degrees. In the end once the panels were complete I needed to sand about a 1/4 inch off each brace so that the panel lined smoothly with the side braces.  Here are the images for my process:
