It was about time I got my butt in gear and continue on my shop upgrade.
This winter will have two big projects.
A dedicated morticing station and to change my chop saw station to cherry.
These two projects will pretty much turn the whole shop into cherry with hand cut dovetail drawers.
I usually start with a basic idea in my head but changes or additions always seem to take place....
My shop is already in disarray as my lumber rack has to come off the wall and be moved.
I won't bore you with the slapping the carcasses together as it is not one of my favorite things to do.
This part I want to get through as quick as possible so I can work with solid wood...
The cabinets won't be the big part of the project.
I'm thinking there will be around 20 drawers. Hand cutting the dovetails will take me a bit of time.
As any project you can't have enough clamps.
Did I mention I like drawers.
Everything behind doors or in drawers.
Five drawers in this one.
And after about six sheets of cherry ply I am just about done with the carcasses for this phase.
When I say just about, as I look at this pic, two more small cabinets will be added.
And now a shot of what I like to work with.
A little bit of cherry.
Picked this up today so I will give it 3 or 4 days to get comfortable in my shop.
Then face frame duty!
Hope everyone is getting a little shop time.
