« Part 1: The Mother Load Part 2 of New Commission series no next part

The central part of each closet consists of a cabinet with shelves that are to be 7’tall x24” wide x16” deep. Because I will need to join boards together to get the 16” depth of the side panels I will use biscuits to help in the alignment and strength of the glue joint. After resizing and jointing the pieces to get the 16” width I set up the router table with a 3/16” slot cutting bit and added bed extensions to support the workpiece.

By pushing the workpiece up to the bearing and going from one edge of the bearing to the other I can get a slot wide enough for the biscuits.

Biscuit slots complete

Boards ready for glue-up

Here are the 2 7’x 16” side panels after glue up and sanding.

cool. I’m following along. Not always going to post, but I’ll be reading. I’ve been hoping to redo my own closet, but it would be with a much lesser quality wood. We’ll see what I can pull from your blog!

This is an interesting set-up that you have. It is wonderful to have room like this to spread things out. Those panels look good.
