Midweek 115




Hi everyone. Ugh, this cabinet was sent to try me! A quick Behind The Scenes video for you today, all about resolving issues 'properly' even when it's painful in the short-term, because the long-term benefits of doing it outweigh the short-term inconvenience.


I'll get the giveaways sorted at the weekend, so comments will close on that forum thread on Friday - get your name down if you haven't already.


Thanks! Peter

In the youtube video you attached the edge trim with 18 gauge brads as well as glue. When you sliced the trim off, was your blade then cutting through these Brad nails? Can a normal circular saw wood blade do that without damage?

The edge trim was just glued on. The only brads I used through the trim into the ends of the decorative birch ply battens, after they’d been planted down. Most TCT blades will cut through a small Brad without any problem, but there are multipurpose blades that can be used if you’re working with a lot of eg recycled material. I seem to remember Dewalt call theirs the ‘nail biter’ blade. 😂

Cheers David! Only because I’d dismantled my router edge-trim jig, and it was a bit too much to sand off completely! 😂👍

I made a mistake this week as well, but it's sorted again now 🤣.

I think the cabinet looks VERY good, you fixed the mistake really well, if you hadn't said anything no one would notice! Looking forward to the build video when you release it.

A mistake like this is a real frustration. I think I would make a drawer with the the sides matching the cabinet sides so the draw front aligns with the sides. As you say it will only be seen from the front and above so the sightlines will disguise it and we can keep the secret!

It is, and best avoided. If it was just one drawer at the top, I’d be inclined to do the same, but with 5 drawers to do the shirt-term pain is easier to deal with. 👍👍
