Just had to keep you tube happy and remove the music. Still getting my head around a few things. So here is more of the same with the 2nd part coming soon.

really nice video Andy :) looks like you have got all the old cabinetmaker skills, joints n stuff :) a few things got my attention though :) please do not take this as harsh comments, its just because the first few minutes of the vid proved that you have a lot of skill ( i am english is not my main language so i don’t know the right terms ) why the nail gun? if i was doing table i would have glued those on ( the pieces of wood that keeps the drawer from tipping( right?) other thing, try when using a cabinet scraper (Ziehkling?) to do it with a pulling motion, i bet you will be very happy with the smooth finish it the scraper is set-up properly :)

and assembling, glueing and hitting with a wooden mallet? i would have used a white rubber one :)

again! really nice job! you are very skilled Andy, looking forward to next vid. and following you on here :)

kind regards jacob

Fantastic! How much time do you have into the project so far? It looks like you did all this in one day.

Looks good Andy ! One thing I noticed though is that you ran your material through the planer without knocking the dried glue down. You may get some smiting on the knives from the glue line. I know that has happened to me quite a lot. Enjoy the journey !

3 questions to answer. Thanks guys I don’t mind being challenged or critiqued, please don’t be afraid of telling me how it is. You all do so nicely though.
JacobRM where you saw me use the nail gun be assured there was glue under that runner. I didn’t want to screw it on. too bulky and nail gun nice clean and quick. Re the scraper, I was told off as an apprentice pulling the scraper towards me, so most of the time I will push. I find it chatters a bit more pulling than pushing.
I would have used my rubber mallet too, but it is …they are both at work. Good spotting.

Brett: I think the base took about a week. The top part that holds the mirror is taking about as long as the base.I have finished 6 little drawers and am about to put a few coats of oil on this afternoon.

Cabmaker: If I am machining to 20mm I will prep my stock to 22. The first pass through the planer I set to 22 then come down 1mm at a time. I tend not to remove the glue but I do sometimes. If it has been allowed to dry hard then I always machine it off because it tears the wood out.

All good guys. Thanks for keeping me on my toes.

You did all that on your toe’s? Just kidding! Watching you useing the hand tools make one think of how lucky we are to have progress so far with power tools!
Plus, I bet you could deduct some time spent on setting up the camera for all the shots it takes to make you movie! Not to mention the editing part!
I must say, I like your style of movie making and woodworking! If you had a show on the Telly I would be tuning in to watch!

Andy,

I think woodshaver has a point. You post excellent videos. And you make it look easy LOL You could exend out the steps with a visual narrative and maybe a why? It would be a DVD you could sell?

You horizontally drill and route the joinery which might be more stable than the vertiical stuff?

Hey thanks guys. maybe one day that might happen. I sure want it to. You might appreciate though, although I love showing these off to you guys, I will be making these projects in detail with my students. So if I give every thing away they might not show up lol.

I have finished the woodwork on the top now so watch this space guys. Really happy with outcome. Put first coat of oil on tonight and there is some stunning grain to say the least..
