« Part 1: The Beginning Part 2 of kitchen cabinets series Part 3: Weekend # 3 dust collector about to give out. »

For spending as many hours in the shop this weekend it does not seem like I got much done. I did finish rough dimensioning the 294 Parts! This took much longer than anticipated. I had a lot more waste than I thought I would. I budgeted for 25% scrap and barely had enough lumber. One 4’ by 7” board left. If I make any mistakes I will need more lumber, I think I will order it now.

I built a rack with saw horses to start organizing the lumber and started to work on running boards on the jointer and through the thickness planer to the final 1” thickness. This process should occupy all of next weekend.

A few of the boards have many dark lines, too many to be gum pockets. I fear I may have some lumber with spalting. If there are only a few I can move these to the side panels.

It always feels like slow goings in this stage for me as well. But things really get going when assembly starts, that’s when I want to be in the shop 24/7.
