« Part 2: More case work and cut list Part 3 of Entertainment Center series Part 4: Twin Towers »

Progress is slow but I just have to keep telling myself how big this project is. My original plan was to finish this in time to put the new TV in it for the Super Bowl (GO STEELERS) but I doubt seriously if that is going to happen. Rushing things usually results in do overs. I spent this past weekend milling maple down to 5/8” for the 4 drawers. They also had to be edge glued since they are 8 inches deep. The plans call for the same joinery used on the case work (tongue and dado) but I decided a little practice with the Leigh jig was in order since I have only used it a few times since I picked it up last summer.

Nice work on the drawers DocK. Doesn’t look like you needed all that much practice on the Leigh jig.

Just like riding a bike!!!! It comes right back to you. Nice job on the drawers,

This is coming along well, but you can’t rush good craftsmanship.

Your making great progress DocK. It is really looking nice. You should have plenty of time to finish prior to watching the Steelers play in the Superbowl. The wood should have a nice patina by then…just kidding! At least your not trying to get it done in time for the Cubs to play in the World Series. It would be an antique by then.

I look forward to watching your progress.

I would love to master my dovetail jig, so I can make dovetail drawers.
