Sorry not Jim Morison and those guys, but the doors I'm making on the router table...finally!!
I used some scraps I had laying around, as the hardwood is rather dear to me here in Japan....
Nothing special, but I figures out how to use the rail and stile raised panel bit set I got from Rockler.com
I think this is going to be nice, I need to work out the sizes that I want to work with, and then dress all the beech I need to do a set of doors.
Well that is a 1st try out of the way!!
On to a simple Cabinet
I figure I should try to crawl before I walk or run,
As I'm using the lam-core plywood, I wanted to hide the edges of the plywood.
I used the drawer lock bit to make this joint...
The lip that is left is all solid wood, the edge of the
I'm making up a face frame for the cabinet.
I was thinking that it is a real waste to plane down about 1
cm of wood to get the thickness I want,
Now on to the doors!
I don't know why I thought I could make the doors out of
3/4" stock (19mm) but I did,
Once I got the new correctly sized stock done it was fairly
simple to get everything cut
The speed control box thing I bought from Rockler.com stopped
working on the variable speed setting,
So here is what the inside of the controller looks like...
That piece of printed circuit melted, so I guess this unit is toast...
I got this done, finally....
I'm not overly happy with the finish, the beech is not the best stuff to stain.
The crappy plywood stuff is worse, but it is done!
