« Part 1: Where have I been? Part 2 of Apothecary Cabinet.. series Part 3: Finished the drawers? »

I started to route the grooves in all 140 parts of the drawers for the Apothecary Cabinet….. I did manage to get 12 drawers done 48 pieces in all….. then I got distracted… or sidetracked…I did manage to finish the teasers… but will post tomorrow…

Here is a pic of the Router table… I made this a few years ago… and the stops on the fence.. This helps to make the stopped grooves..

I know this is a little difficult to see but the side pieces do not have the groove all the way through…


You can see the drawers have the face fronts cut from one board… and the grain goes across the whole 5…Times Seven…

So I was sidetracked with the teaser in the last pic in the last post…

More on that next time…

And I hope to have the other 23 drawers grooved in the next week or so…

Later…

Hey Larry,

You’re off to a good start. By the time you finish though, you may be needing some of the little pills that fill these drawers.

I had a girl friend once who was a teaser….

Nice job keeping track of the drawer fronts. That will really show in the end. Until the customer mixes them all up by mistake and hires you to come out and put them back in the right place. (Maybe you should number the bottoms).

Larry A great looking job. Great design with the sequenced boards.

Larry, these are nice drawers and cleverly done.

Larry, I just went to your home page and looked at your shop, projects, and blog. You have a very nice shop and do some wonderful work. BTW I noticed in your shop you have a blue plunge router mounted onto a metal jig of some sorts. Is that a mortice jig or what?
