« Part 2: Waiting and planning or "I hate Drywall" Part 3 of Laundry Wall cabinets series Part 4: Almost Ready for the real woodworking or I HATE DRYWALL »

Well I am ready to get to building actually. I still hate drywall, but a friend of mine needs some work so I hired it done. My design is pretty simple butt joints glued up with biscuits and polyurethane glue. I have some dohickeys called square it or something like that from Rockler. I will record my thoughts on their use, but I have had good luck with them when gluing up carcasses before. I am convinced that the secret to this type of project is to keep the box dead square through out the entire process and don’t fight the inaccuracy caused by my less than perfect tools. My plan is to cut my panels slightly oversize, 1/8 ” or so and then trim them to absolute square using a factory square pattern and a pattern cutter with the router. For the factory square I have a piece of plastic covered chipboard that came out of a piece of Sauder ‘furniture’. I have measure it with the three four five triangle and it is as square as I can measure. It also passes the ‘flip it, butt it and see if the edges are still straight test’. Hopefully I will take pictures as I go to explain it a bit better.
