So I have the assembled carcase of a sideboard braced against my workbench and I’m planing the top edge of the aprons flush with the top of the legs.

After 10 strokes, things go all wrong.

The front apron of the sideboard comes loose, and the carcase sways like a drunken sailor on my shop floor. At first I can’t bear to look at the problem (like when you cut yourself) but then I examine the damage.
