    Gary, beautiful work as usual!
    I go into lust mode every time I see your Neander Haven.

    Gary,
    Terrific looking cabinets! I need to do this as well, but if I don't complete a few other projects first, I will be needing a doghouse...and I don't have a dog.
    Thanks for posting, and I too am looking forward to a posting of the shop when it is done.

    The Whole Family.

    Not a ton of shop time lately.
    But enough to use up the last of my cherry and maple to get this far.
    All but one of the carcasses with the faces on and most with the BLO bath.
    Total of 15.

    Keen eyes will notice the grain running the wrong way on the middle cabinet.
    Just trying to keep the waste to a minimum...
    This will be a TV cabinet so I don't think it will be that noticeable.

    After work we made a quick trip to the lumber guy and we are all stocked up again.
    We will give this new stuff a couple of days to settle down and we will be back at it..

    Lovely work and a superb shop - from what we can see - I look forward to the tour.

    Oh to have that much space, I'm limited to 22ft by 13ft. Crazy really, but the internal walls in my barn are solid stone and would take a bit of moving ! Anyway, the horses need the rest of the space.

    Thanks for the comments guys..
    I've got far enough into this that I'm starting to anticipate putting these things on the walls..

    Gary, how about a shop tour after you get them up? I know your dovetail corner very well but would love to see the rest!

    Router Cabinet

    I've been having problems with my knee the past while so progress in the shop has been a little low...
    But that being said I have finally got the second last cabinet of sliding shelves done.
    This one is for my routers.
    I lucked out to get the PC box into the cabinet. Ended up having a 1/2" to spare on the depth.

    Only one more sliding shelve to do and these will be behind me.
    Last cabinet will be the home for my miter gauge.

    Hope everyone is getting a little shop time.

    One More Little Victory....

    One more little victory on this project. No more sliding shelves to build...
    The last one which will house my miter gauge was finished this morning.

    The plan is slowly coming together..
    Now it will be door production time. Maybe even in the next week or so we will start to get some of these things on the wall....

    Gary, really beautiful work. It looks like you may be using mortice and tenon joinery on your face frames. Does this mean you are assembling them separately and gluing and/or pinning them to the carcases?

    Thanks David.
    The frames are 1/2 lap joints in the four corners. Instead of making a frame I just use a few biscuits and glue each piece on individually. No pins.

    Couldn't see so clearly from your pictures - thanks for the clarification. Those half laps are a nice bit of additional detail to your cabinets. Gives me some ideas...

    Now this will slow one down...

    So a couple of nights ago I spent 7 hours in the emergency room at hospital....
    My knee that I've been having problems with really gave out on me yesterday.
    I'm thinking the splint and the crutches are going to slow the shop time down a bit.
    At least I'm able to hobble around as the meds are kicking in
    Downside of this is they say I may need a new knee. That's probably going to really slow one down to a real crawl..
    And I didn't even get time to clean my shop before this happened.

    This Friday I get to visit my physician to see what the next step is.

    Anyone want to come over and build a few doors for me?
