« Part 5: Knocks on Box sir. Part 6 of Shop Remodel series Part 7: Speed Kills »

There are mythical things in this world that people want to believe in, For me it is that elusive easy glue up. So I got the case to my saw till all ready to glue up. Everything was sanded and I had put the glue on the dovetails ready to stick it together. I had my cauls at hand and clamps ready to go. So I went at it thinking I had it under control. Half way thru I looked for the dowel I had turned to rest the saws on… Nowhere to be found, so like a chicken with my hair on fire I ran around the shop looking for it. Too many minutes and too many cuss words later I found it at the bottom of my trash can. It had somehow rolled off the bench and into the trash. Go figure.
Anywho, everything else went well today. I used my legacy router mill to turn a rope design fro the dowel. The cleats for the saws went together nicely. I used a 1/16” blade from my dado set for the kerfs. The cabinet will be held to the wall with a french cleat, thankfully I can access the back side of the framing to a support. I used a cut down stain to add a bit of depth to the curly maple, then sanded it down to 220 grit. I can’t wait to see finish on it, I think it is going to POP!
Enjoy the pics, I did get a little video today and I don’t think it is adding up fast so I might do all 5 pieces on one video.

Have a great weekend and keep an eye out for Big Foot. ;)
Take care and have fun woodworking!

Bookmatched back! Nice. Chicken with its hair on fire? Yup, BTDT. All part of the adventure.
