I’ve been busy in the shop. Dorothy wants a vanity in the bathroom, so instead of blogging, I’ve got to keep moving. A dial indicator on the table saw fence lets a guy work within a thousandth of an inch.
Dados cut in the plywood carcase key everything together like a puzzle.
Carcase with back rabbeted in
Salvaged wood being glued up to save money on drawer fronts
Lap jointed face frame and varnish added to carcase
Here is the jig I made about 20 years ago; it lets me index the wood over to cut finger joints in the drawer sides
Drawer parts ready for glue up
Drawer boxes ready for trimming
Well, it’s not finished, but a lot of the heavy lifting is done. In the foreground is my dust collector. In the back ground you can see the operating position of my ham shack. Woodworking with Morse code blasting, it just doesn’t seem fair that one guy should have so much fun. Thanks for looking.
