An update only because getting the drawers built is taking so long and is fixin’ to take awhile longer because shop time is giving way to quality family time. For The Big Drawer, I’ve worked side dovetails by marking for thickness and depth… Then worked the half-blind pins … And stuck it in place, without a bottom, just because I was ready to see progress! Five drawers to document in a future post, and I’m trying some different assembly methods ...
Workshop additions, modifications, adaptations and installations #10: Not real common and uncommonly large.
Vacuum bag. This will go to 4×8 but I have it set up just to handle instrument bodies, about 16” x 36”. Router duplicator, Marlin brand, made really for signage but I use it for instrument bodyage.

Ripping stock to size. I really don’t know why I was staying so far from the line. Not that it matters. Apparently my sawing has been getting better. I stayed away from the line to allow for wandering of the saw blade, but it tracked so straight that I think I can stick right next to the line next time. Jointing sawn edges. While I know that the shavings aren’t what is important, seeing the difference in the shavings of my jointer plane(on top), and my fore plane(on ...
