Well ladies and gentlemen im feeling much better again. And its Hammer time. Time to start making up time lost from being sick. First, I just wanted to thank you guys & gas for get well wishes and kind words. All of you are great! A great community. Thank you!
Well as I was lying around I didn’t get a chance to post any pictures but where im at. I finished all the face frames and instslled. I finished all the french cleats on the back and on the front. The french cleats on the front will hold my 23 ga pin nailer, 5/8" – 1 1/2/ 18 ga nailer and my crown stapler. I did make one section of the rear french cleat removable. This is for being to install the full extension rails for the pull out drawer and to maintain the guides.
I did get the blocking in for the drawer rails to get fasten to. But after doing so, I found out about Miller Fast Blocks. (Please see my blog on them) I am going to order a bag of theses because I have three more shop cabinets to make and five kitchen cabinets. These will aid in a much better looking and finish adjustments. I also bought the woodworkers vise with quick release and the door hinges and handles. And since I was shopping I bought more F style clamps total spent was just under $500.00.
I am going to be starting the raised panel doors next. Then adding the slots for the lag bolts to attach the top to the base. Then im going to finish the indide so afterwards i can install the rails and make the drawers. I will be making my drawers out of hard maple and hickory fronts.
