  • Now Scott, you know SL&RA already thought of that. Face framing will cover the cross grain cuts and the side cuts will be with the grain. He will score all cuts before cutting. He has a piece of 4x4x2 foam insulaion that he puts under the wood he cuts with the skil saw. OR, he could cut to size...

  • He's already thought of scoring the plywood. He also has a skill saw that he used on the cabinet in my office which is finished in Satin. We are getting semi gloss today to try, which I will probably go with in the kitchen. Never thought about the shrinkage Rolf. I think I had a good idea on prefinishing!!!!...

  • Pre finishing plywood before cut

    At the meeting last week, Bruce was talking to a guy who said he purchased prefinished plywood in a semi gloss finish and used for his cabinets. More expensive but a time saver. So, my thought is Bruce finish the plywood before he cuts it. It would save at least a week in drying time. We are using 12...

    He's using 3/4 backs. We went to a woodworking show last year and he spoke spoke with one of the cabinet instructors. He told him to use the same thickness plywood all around so he only has one set up for his tools. He did that on the cabinet he made for my office and it worked perfect. He's using kregg...

    Lol Jim. Guess I shouldn't tell you about the free wood we got from a counter/table shop. Their work is breathtaking. They came to Bruce's woodworkers meeting and invited anyone to come take their left overs from projects....

    I measured plates, platters and bowls and 11" will be good. We will have 2 lazy Susans so I can store my larger items, toaster, etc. He's also doing a tall cabinet with slide outs for storage. An over the stove cabinet for the microwave, on one side of the stove will be a cabinet for cookie sheets,...

    Thanks for the tip never thought of that one. The plates are now in a corner cabinet. The corner cabinets he's going to build aren't going to be as deep as that one so thanks for the tip.

    Score!!!

    We stopped in our wood supply store today and Bruce was routing through the cut off scrap bin. I'm two aisles over and he says I think you need to get over here right now. Thinking he had fallen and/or cut himself,I go around the corner to see what was going on. He had in his hand a piece of Honduran...

    first issue Bruce has run across. I told him I wanted my cabinet shelves 11 inches wide. And that's exactly what he did, he cut them 11 inches wide forgetting the back piece of plywood is three quarters of an inch wide thereby giving me a shelf of 10 1/4 inches. He's going to be using the pocket hole...

    SL&RA his new nickname. Love it. Epic project is right. This is the top made for the table so the wood doesn't drop when he cuts it. The wood will be the side of the cabinet facing my desk. Of course that was in the middle of the board and I told him I wanted that to face my desk. I got a rolled...

  • Actually it was Bruce's woodworking group that had a booth set and Jet came over and asked them to let people try the two machines. But the set could have been better.

    He's going to be doing the same style as he did my office cabinet. And I really think I'm going to be sticking with the natural one. I think it's a shame to cover up beautiful wood with paint. The local store where I buy a lot of my wood from is going to let me go with him to his supplier to pick out...

    Well almost. After 8 hours of relocating the table saw, using his work table as an extension on the backside and building a precision table top to make the table the same height as the saw so the wood doesn't drop when he cuts it, 3 days of arranging and rearranging, Straight lines and right angles...

    It was a lot of fun Rolf. I think I missed South South Carolina. I've been using the rigid shop vac for 2 years and really like it. I showed Bruce the Loc Line set up and of course he said he would set it up for me.
