I have two projects left on the interior of the house:
In the case of the cabinets it’s more than just cabinets. It will be cabinets plus shelving and other doodads to complete a laundry room, pantry, mud rooms and two walk-in closets.
So below is a picture of the first carcase that I am working on.
Total cost at this point is $40 including the maple face frames (not seen)
Last night I finally got everything put together with the table saw. The output table set up, everything calibrated.
I then built the final thing that I needed to be able to start building cabinets…the cross-cut sled. These things are pretty easy to make. I ordered a couple of guides, cut a piece of wood and screwed them on.
Bingo. The last thing to do is square the fence to the blade. I used the 5-cut method and then the dial-in method.
Now I’m off to Europe for a couple of weeks and when I get back I’ll start putting cabinets together.
Almost there. Just have to finish painting the drawers and we’re good.

Can’t wait for Penske to join the Ford fray.

Here’s the nearly finished laundry pedestal with a coat of primer. The odd cutout in the back is for the dryer vent. The drawer fronts make it look symmetrical.
I’ll show a shot when it’s done and in place
1988 F250 4×4.
I call it ‘Hulk’. The wife called it ‘Cookie Monster’. Might be more appropriate.
Price was right.
Did some demo work on the house tonight. Opening up the kitchen to the dining room and removing the pantry (there’s another just around the corner).
Next step is to remove the 2×4’s.
Steel City Tool Works. Pretty excited to get this thing and get started on building cabinets and other stuff for the new house. Delivery May 22nd…
