« Part 7: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly Part 8 of Miter Bench and Storage series no next part

I managed to finish milling the drawer fronts/sides/backs this past Sunday and started the assembly process. Due to the lack of clamps and only being able to get two setups at a time (and of course my day job), I finally finished up today. Here are all ten of them in all of thier glory.

With darkness closing in this evening and the the wife not so happy I pressed on through and mounted the first two drawers.

They need a bit of fine tuning but they are in. I can see the end of the tunnel, I hope to have this finished up this weekend! Just have to finish mounting the drawers, mount the drawer fronts and then the handles! Whew!

I just read all your entries. Really nice job. How do you like the HF air compressor unloader? Sorry to hear about the kick back. Do you have a splitter.

The automatic drainer seems to work fine, I still need to due some fine tuning on the system over all. The Tubing HF provides is crap, not even worth trying, just go out and buy some high pressure hydraulic line tubing.

Ahh a splitter, I have one of these but need to build out several more ZCIP and install it. I added the Grr-Ripper to the inventory last weekend and paired up I am hoping to increase my level of safety when it comes to ripping.

Hi sIKE;

I guess this blog is winding down. That’s kind of disappointing.

I’ve enjoyed seeing it come about, and thank you for posting it.

It was almost as much fun as doing it myself!

Maybe I’ll wander out to the shop and play now.

Yeppers, I think this was the last blog for this project, I have to finish up the drawers fronts and handles and put a bow on it. I am so glad to get this one off of the to do list.
