« Part 1: Episode One Part 2 of Laundry Room Floor Cabinet series Part 3: I hate finishing. »

1/1/12 – OK. Today I finished the flat panels. I had to make a detour and build a panel cutting jig. Its worked ok for this project but I would like to build a slightly wider panel sled as a keeper.

1/2/12 – Assembled, glued-up and hinged up while waiting on dye to arrive from Rockler.

1/4/12 – Only two days of Christmas Break left. Today I built the drawer for the cabinet. I was excited to use my new Portal Cable router! My plan was to make a test draw from pine and the final drawer from Aspen. However, my test drawer came out pretty OK and the pine doesn’t appear half bad. Since this is a laundry room cabinet and not part of our kitchen, I plan on keeping and using the pine version.

The dovetail jig (Harbor Freight) was a little picky to set as usual. I am alway surprised just how close I need to bring the flare of the dovetail bit to the collar of the guide bushing to make this work. Fortunately its not a brass bushing so a little cut into the bushing shouldn’t hurt anything other than my woodworking ego.
