« Part 3: Finished the drawers? Part 4 of Apothecary Cabinet.. series Part 5: Finally, the drawers are finished. »

While I was being industrious over the weekend… got around to sanding the finger joints of a few of the drawers on the Apothecary Cabinet…
Lots of fun…

Actually had to sand all six sides of each drawer… got 8 done so far and a few from a while ago… just over 20 to go… yahoo…

I think that they will look fabulous… hope I get them finished this year LOL

Should make a fine looking cabinet when you are finished. Looking forward to the completed project.

I absolutely love apothecary cabinets. The step you’re currrently on is why I haven’t built one.

Don’t you wish you could have a robot to do some of the tedious stuff? A sanding bot would be near the top of my list…........I wonder if they will ever make a shop bot that runs around the shop floor and picks up the shavings and the sawdust, like the vacuum robots for carpeting…............

..........also high on the list would be a finishing bot… that could clean up after itself…...............

Oh well. Gotta dream…........

Look good!

Man O Man, Larry…

You sure do believe in doing things in a BIG style don’t you?!

I KNOW you’re tired of just One Step of those 20 items… You’re making WORK out of it! :)

Your main business is selling at those Shows isn’t it? I guess I FINALLY figured it out! :)

Yes, it IS the work that you do… and very well… I might add. :)
