« Part 28: Shoe Rack Cabinet The work begins Part 29 of Furniture series Part 30: Shoe Rack Cabinet Starting the framework »

With all the brute force timber cutting and preparation work over it was now time for some interesting progress

Today I achieved the following:

1. Cut up the raised panels cut the rails including Profiling all the rails and stiles
2. Profiled all the raised Panels.
3. Did a dry fit up to check everything.
4. Pulled it all apart sanded everything and Polished the raised panels and then sealed the frame work

5. Assembled and glued up the “B” Side of the cupboard.

I used my 3 bit Raised panel set to cut the stiles and rails
Some photos.

Work begins in ernest.

Layout of the components

Everything looked OK dimensions wise so it was now time to profile everything.

I used my shaper to do the profiles with the bit in the pictures.

Then assembled everything to do a final check.

The fronts:

The Rears:

Then all was dismantled and final finishing carried out.

Sanding the frame stiles.

and the rails

The Raised panels were sanded too but I had another process in store for them.

Polishing.

(I had to quickly remove my red nail polish just in case LBD spotted it)

Here is the first Panel polished beside it’s mate just sanded to 320 G.

A shot of the original post just in case there was some concern about me pulling a hoax about just what this timber gives up with some TLC.

The B Side re assembled and glued up.

Whats with the B side reference?

As the shoe cuboard will be free standing and the right hand side will face the wall and never be seen until its removal, and by that stage I will not be around to explain all the dodgy work. So when I prepared all the parts I graded all the best features into the left hand side, so that the natural defects and those man made were religated to “The Wall”.

Have a look and see how many defects you can spot. there are about five but I think one is hidden by a rail.

Pic 1

The sides are yet to be trimmed to size hence the raggedy end.

Pic 2

Check out that finish shine ! nothing more than friction polished.

Pic 3

I included picture three as it showed the stock pile of posts remaining, these brutes weigh in at about 35 to 40 kgs each, and patiently await my son to arrive to assist in their movement.

Now on to the second side.

That is way too cute-a build… keep looking for Cinderella and the missing shoe (glass is reserved for vino and slipper is reserved for a glass case… oops we may have a loop here)...

Only in Qld., can one get figured wood with hieroglyphics on it,

who is your supplier?

Seagulls spot, ducks paint their webbed feet purple to disguise their shoe size… every Victorian know this duckma!

... and by that stage I will not be around to explain all the dodgy work….

Now that’s thinking outside the square.

A shot of the original post just in case there was some concern about me pulling a hoax about just what this timber gives up with some TLC.


Now Ireally like that… I could use a new bench grinder and some tissues..

PS. If I had feet, I’d like one of these cabinets.

As I started counting all of the GoofUps, it became apparent that you really screwed this project up! I lost count of everything I saw!

KIDDING… I found it very HARD to see any messups… You are doing just FINE!

After seeing Part B and being told “Now on to the Back”... I couldn’t imagine what a Back would look like!!

What is the Other Part going to do?

You are doing GREAT… Very good on Finishing a lot of it BEFORE you GLUE it together!!

Well I am of the opinion that there should be free global shippinng for retired LJs who need timber to keep them amused at home and off the streets and outa bars.

Some of the timber projects I see with timber I have never heard of or thats definately unavailable locally is just as enviable to me I assure you.

If I knew of a shipping company around here that would ship the timber as dunnage you would have some I tell you!

Maybe I could slip a couple of lengths under the seats of Air force one if Donald happens to visit

Ducks with purple feet, cannot say I have ever seen one,...

Put your head under one for a quick look… You may not see the light, but I’m sure you’ll get spotted!


... and outa bars….
BLASPHEMY!

However, once the Duck panic settled, I thought, when Muhammad won’t come to the mountain was the reason why wine casks were invented!


... global shippinng for retired LJs who need timber to keep them amused at home….

Gents, gents, gents again I wake up, fire up LJ and find myself getting fired up… Why do us Victorians need to solve all the world crisis? The chip (sorry I meant weight) on my shoulders is overbearing!

Wood floats… Just throw a few logs into the water at your local beach. Drop your buddies a notifying email (would even have time for good old snail mail), leave our single moon and the tides to do the free shipping for you and all you need to do is a bit of beachcombing with a good pair of eye-glasses a few months later on the other side.


... slip a couple of lengths under the seats of Air force one if Donald…

Why under the seat? Just put it on the seat… after all that duck wouldn’t know what or who he’s sitting on!


.... we can all have Get Togethers around a BBQ and shed demo….

crowie, such magnificent insight should justify you to be recognised as an honorary Victorian!
