Thanks for all the help folks. I will be starting this project later on today, which will be a small 3 drawer nightstand like piece for my shop…and it will also be my first project! I will be sure to post pics!

A few more quick questions I you guys wouldn’t mind!

1. I notice my table saw fence moves 1/8 inch on occasion. I think I may be putting to much pressure on it in an effort to keep my wood against the fence. I am going to try less pressure on it. Any comments ?

2. How long do I have to wait for glue to dry if I’m also using plenty of 18 gauge brads. The plan calls for the stiles, and rear support cleats and panels to be installed that way as such. I’m just wondering how long I should wait, if at all, between steps.

3. The plan calls for mostly 1” and 2” finish nails with glue; but all I have is an 18 gauge brad nailer. I’m thinking about just using those lenghts with my Brads instead of finishing nails.
