Hi everyone...another first timer here. My coreldrawx3 doesn't seem to be doing the job it should. I purchaced a disc on lasering a victorian doll house and some of the files open up and some i get a 'invalid file format. This program is running on my laptop with windows xp. I downloaded coreldraw on by wifes desktop and the program works fine...but i need it on mine. The disc was bought from laserbits (laserbuzz). The question i need a answer to is this...i want to dump cdx3 and re-load it....but
I began today by cutting the walnut into manageable pieces. I milled the walnut flat and square.
I am going to use a piece with sapwood in it for the inside shelf. I like the look of it after finishing.
I glued them with the Bessey clamps and set them aside for an hour.
I decided to make a doweling jig at work to reinforce the mitered corners of the project. After some testing on some plywood, I felt ready to attempt the mitered edge of bubinga. Everything came out OK. I learned that a brad point bit does not work well with this type of jig.

Several pictures of the top and side set in place.
Using a plywood board for a straight edge, I route with a pattern bit for a good edge on the top. I take small cuts at a time until the edge "cleans up".
Using the table saw, I cut the 45 degree angles where the top and side joins. I had to use a piece of plywood clamped to the board because I couldn't use the live edge as a reference against the fence.
