Well, the monster shelving unit is almost ready. Another hour with the sand paper and maybe 2 with a brush and urethane and it will be ready to go.
This leaves me time for planning the next project. Windows for our greenhouse/garden shed. I see this as a good time to practice a skill I will need for some other upcoming projects…making glass panel doors. The plan is to essentially build a very shallow cabinet with no back to serve as the frame. To that I will attach face frames and then oversized glass panel doors.
I plan to buy a set of router bits to do this project. I have looked at Freud, CMT, and Sommerfeld. I have three requirements. 1, the set should be made so that determining the stile length is done via a set formula and NOT by trial and error. 2, the set should also be able to cut the mutton for multiple lights. 3. It must be able to cut rabbits for the glass and retainers.
Technique wise, the Sommerfeld set looks like it is top of the list. It is also top of the list price wise too! Is this a case of better infomercials than the others or are they actually worth the price?
What say you Lumberjocks? I would welcome any comments you may have.
