« Part 1: The Plan - definately not SU Part 2 of Jewlery Amoire series Part 3: Making Panels »

I decided to video blog this section. After I did the jointing and did a few calculations I realized that I need more wood. I think I’m going to pick some D4S at Home Depot as planing and jointing takes a fair amount of time.

There is no sound the first 10-15 seconds . . . so don’t turn your volume up REALLY high. Just be patient.

Nice trick using the binder dividers for shims to remove material. Da wife and I went through our three kids’ rooms cleaning this past week. They have all moved out on their own and we shoveled out their leavings. Can you say, Empty Nest? Anyway, my pack-rat kids left behind lots of junk, including binders , each containing several of those dividers. Never occurred to me they would be good for any woodworking purpose.

Great job of of jointing, BTW. I, too, have no jointer, so I am relying on my router as well. Thanks for sharing.

Ps. Was that Foghorn Leghorn I heard in the background?

Merry Christmas from me and mine to you and yours.

Nice work on the video. Very informative and a good technique for those who don’t have a jointer to clean up their edges. Looking forward to watching your progress.

Merry Christmas to you and your family…Doug

Tks guys. This video thing is relatively new to me. It takes a wee bit of time editing and the outtakes are more frustrating than funny . . . but I like it.

As you can probably guess it can take several passes to achieve a clean edge. One of the boards I could not fully joint as the last several inches had a gouge taken out of the wood. That’s ok as I have to cut the first and last couple of inches off the board to get rid of the snipe from the planer.

LOL . . . Foghorn. Actually it sounded like Chicklet. We have 6 pet roosters. You can see Chicklet here in his debut on LumberJocks –

And right back at you with the Merry Christmases. :-)

I always joint with my small little benchtop model, but I am planning on upgrading to better one.
