« Part 16: Mini Cabinets and Soffit upgrade Part 17 of Kitchen Remodel series no next part

Well it’s been 2445 days since my last post on my buffet build. As I stated in the first posting my wife said that you are not doing anything until I get my kitchen.

I got up to blog entry 5 before the kitchen got hot (You know what I mean). So then blogs 6 through 16 were on the kitchen cabinet build. That finished and so I started to clean up my shop and I had my son-in-law help me to move a table saw to the middle of the shop and move a portable workbench to the wall area where the saw had been.

Where the saw was sitting I could only rip a 16” board until I hit the wall. This was not my main saw, but it became one I was wa using more and more. So it was moved to the middle of the room where I could cross cut and also rip as needed.

I had stored a few boards under the partially completed buffet and so I needed to find out what they were. There were stretchers for three of the shelves. There were cleats for the aprons at the front and back for the bottom. I need to cut 12 drawer slides for the four rows of shelves and the drawer glides that attach to them.

So I basicly have to assemble all of the pieces so that I can measure the length of the slides and then cut the mortise and tenon on all of them.

Here’s what it looks like now that it’s been moved.

Now to install a few pieces and measure.

I can relate to the space problem Karson. There never is enough.
I usually work outside the workshop to gain more space.
Your with should be happy Karson. Gotta keep the boss on the right side mate.

nice to see you back on the horse on this one Karson.

I had to move my table saw so many times until I found a spot where I could mill 80% of the boards at it’s resting place (then for the other 20% I do move it out to get more clearance).
