« Part 1: Design Phase. Getting off my .... Part 2 of Custom Dishwasher Panel Progress series Part 3: New Beadboard Style »

Motivation
Wife: Just get out there and start working on it.

Good advice actually. I was dead tired after some yard work, but I went into the shop Sunday afternoon on Kristin’s advice.

Board Selection
I made some changes to the cutlist to reflect a few new measurements. Also I did not have enough wide boards and wanted to avoid having to slice up any more beams.


Revised cut list

So I culled through my pile of old fir and pulled out some prime specimens.

I finished up Sunday by rough cutting my boards.

The rough length boards. The large stack of mostly vertical grain will become the beadboard field. The bottom two boards will become the rails. They are plain sawn with more prominent grain.

Milling
Tonight I set out for an hour to mill up the stock to finished dimensions.

I had already planed the boards when I cut up the beams a few weeks back, but I gave them a pass or two on the jointer and then thicknessed them to a little under 3/4”.

One technique I always use on the jointer is to pencil mark the edge or face so I can guage progress as I work. You can hear it too, but I like the visual of the dissappearing pencil lines.

I finished up on the table and mitre saws and set then set out my pile of finished stock. I cut one too short, but had set aside an extra for such an occasion.


Milled and ready for joinery. I stack ‘em for air circulation. Not sure how necessary this is.

Tomorrow I will route the grooves, splines, and v’s.

John, I do the same thing when jointing and planing. It’s reassuring to see the pencil lines get milled off. There’s something pleasurable about milling lumber, isn’t there? I love being able to take a crusty, rough board and expose the beauty inside.

Looking forward to seeing the next stages of your project!

So, is this fir left over from your cabinet project?

Do we get to watch more glue dry?

Is that a Festool?

Do you plan on this panel matching the cabinets?

I’m looking forward to another great project.

Thanks for the comments gentlemen.

Sawdust: Some of it is left over and I acquired some more beams including taking some from a construction project on a nearby home with permission.

Festool! = birthday present from wifel. Awesome little thing.

This panel will match the cabinets yes, but larger than the doors.

Maybe I will let you watch poly dry this time.

Either I forgot to hit the right button or someone removed my earlier post.

In response to “Awesome little thing” I asked if it was the Festool or Kristen.
