« Part 1: Bookcase series..base unit Part 2 of 3 pc.bookcase cabinet series series Part 3: Mailboxes, Glue ups I hate, and Cabinets »

Hey this is the fun part of Arizona and Mornings.. Outdoor workshop. Under the canopy Fan blowing on you. Staining a Project. So the base units of the bookcase are ready for stain. And this takes some music and patience and looking at any mistakes I made in the building process. Still time to make any small adjustments. Yes I learned some more and planning measurement for the faceframes and doors. Each base will be separate but side by side. Next is cut and glue poplar to make an 18 by 32 countertop piece for each that the shelf unit will go onto. And some routed edges. I found I made a lousy NO really crappy warped Router table. So with advice I bought a new Bosch Bench Top Router Table. Highly rated and very good features. from Lowes. It was easy to assemble and will take the Harbor Freight 2 hp router I bought. It was a delight to do the test cuts. I had regretted selling my homemade unit back in PA. But very pleased with this and should get many miles out of it. Also for the doors of the Cabinet a new Rail Stile set from Home Depot and in the lid shows a vertical Panel Cutter. So I have a choice make the raised panels on the new table or on the table saw. Certainly make some test cuts. I used this bit on my son’s cherry blanket chest and have a test panel I kept. Still falling into surprizes a church friend told me of a family selling some of the Dad’s tools. And I was able to get many wood blanks for the lathe for bowls and 8 Turning Chisels more for bowls to finish my collection and time to add another chisel rack for these. Some are 20 inch long Definitely like Christmas and smiling here amidst the heat.
