Baby Got Back
Today we completed our four cabinet boxes’ parts by cutting the groove for the backs. This sounds simple but we had to do a ton of double checking.
Plus, I don’t think I mentioned that my biscuit joiner needed a little tune up. After last week’s dry fit, I realized that several of the cabinet rails had slightly miscut biscuits. So we recut 10 rails today. Screwing down the biscuit joiner helped as well.
So, on to the tablesaw to cut the groove and trim the back panels around 1/8” all around.
Here we check the fit of the back panel. Nicely aligned to the edge of the rail.
It was exciting to get the backs fit.
Here I hold up a faceframe to the cabinet just to get a taste. So sweet.
We decided to get on with the sanding. If you have never tried air powered sanders, I say try it.
I would love to have one of these. We used two of the Dynabrade Sanders that run on a high powered compressor. They run smoothly with no vibration. The downdraft table helps control dust as well.
All doors are sanded to 220 now.
Coming soon: Door Glue Ups. Cutting drawer parts. Finish Samples
