Fig. I being superfluous. Next scale otf tlie thickness of the doors, ends and back as given in the specifications, and draw in parallel lines representing the insides ; then set off the stiles. To obtain position of meeting stiles, set off a centre line in the width. This will be i ft. 8 in. from either end, the bead is | in. wide, so set off in. on each side of centre line, then 3J in. each side, which will be the inner edges of the stiles. Next set off ?, in. within these edges for plough grooves and mark across. Draw the panels in the middle of the thickness f in. thick. Draw a in. rebate in the ends to receive the back anil divide up the width into 5a in. boards. Indicate the tongues by short lines. This completes what is generally termed the " plan," but which is really a horizontal section which we may assume is taken 011 the line B-B, Fig. 4—That is, if the cupboard existed, and it were cut through with a saw upon the line B B, the appearance at the line (if cut would be as shown in Fig. 3. We can next project the front elevation (Fig. 4) from the plan. The dotted lines indicate the direction of these and they will obviously be made with the set square resting upon the T-square, which is held with its top edge just c lear of the line a- b.
The lines are stopped at a horizontal projector drawn from the top (if Fig. 2 as shown. This, of course, locates the top of the cupboard. After drawing the outline, we may scale otf the dimensions of the various parts as given in the specification at the commencement, or, as is more usual in practice, proceed at once with the vertical section (Fig. 5) in a similar manner to that prescribed for the horizontal section, and, having obtained the width and thickness of the various parts, we then project them into the elevation, the intersection of the two sets of projectors completing the elevation mechanically.
The above procedure, with trifling variations, will answer for the reproduction of the following examples, and if the student is not clear as to the actual construction of the fitting he is referred to page 95, where an isometric view of the
