« Part 2: Bookcase cabinets and Christmas in May Part 3 of 3 pc.bookcase cabinet series series Part 4: Shopsmith and Bookcases and Cutting Poplar »

Hey a new Goal for me is Don’t Post a project too early. And the whole wood covering of a metal mailbox stand was looking Okay..and I posted it. But with trim top and bottom and some filler strips. Now its ready for paint. Like about 6 coats out here in the sun of AZ. so thats a quick job but the big picture is …it was not finished. This is finished. Do a better Job….My father once said..he did not get to teach me a lot of Shop things…Why did the Shop teacher let some Project out of His Shop? Maybe that’s got more to it than we want to hear. #2. I hate scraping down glue up panels and the whole cabinet job so far has been real wood no plywood and all 16 inch wide so sand, scrape, whatever. Even in my shade of outdoors. this is the last panel for the counter top piece in the next photo. Poplar is pretty but I had not expected the tough quality. Just the heat and effort. #3. 3 base units 3 counter top pieces, then 3 shelf units on top those will be 4 feet high and 30 in wide shelves. the shelf stand will be 9 inch wide with 8 inch shelves. Lots of edges to rout and glue on. Doors and frames for the cabinets. Still its coming along. All real wood no plywood. Looking ahead to much sanding and bought a second palm sander if the first dies.
thanks Hal
