  1. Been moving along slower than I had hoped for on this project. Did manage to get the plywood picked up that I ordered In to a local lumber yard. It is an import birch ply 3/4 thick and 1/2. I haven’t checked them with a caliper yet to see the actual thickness. To be honest not really impressed with it. It is an imported product and the veneer seems super thin on it. Mostly the reason for the slow progress is life, ball games take up a few nights a week and one day on the weekends. The are fun to get to tho! My wife is coaching the team this year and my oldest plays. Here is a quick s

  2. I cut the panels today and glued up the doors. Somehow or another I was able to cut some shims, miked to exactly 1/16” (not shown). With a little hand plane adjustment, I should be ok. Pictured are the doors just sitting in place. My next challenge after fine tuning are the euro style hinges. The dark area about midway on the right door is not space but the color of the poplar. e

  5. Plywood parts all cut to size, my neighbor bought the kreg rip cut track and had me try it out for him. Only made a handful of cuts with it, it worked......ok. Not over impressed but not thinking it was a complete waste of money. Should say all the 3/4 ply is cut to size. Haven’t started on the 1/2 which is the cabinet backs and drawer bottoms. Set the power feeder up to assist with the dados and rabbit cuts. Dust collection pipe was in the way for the taller cabinets, happy it’s on wheels to slide it back and gain the clearance. I didn’t get any pictures of the ca

  6. The Lexel does a good job keeping the panels in place. To be on the safe side, I will pin nail them in the center, from the backside, to the rails.

  11. My next objective is to mate the bottom with the top. The very bottom piece of the top, is a 4” wide piece of 3/4” ply banded with the poplar. I will add a similar thickness piece to the top of the bottom section, that will fit inside the top section to keep them in alignment.

  12. For inset I would build them tight. Leaves you plenty of room to trim. You can still size them to your 1/16" under by increasing your rail and stile width. If you do that just remember to cut your stiles a longer to accommodate that extra rail width.

  13. Shoot for the 1/16th to allow for adjustment room.. You may have to do a small inner chamfer but, the euro hinges usually account for that.

  14. They help hide the pins as well.

  15. Probably a 1/4” lip on the bottom of the shelf will give it visual strength as well. Good idea! Thanks

  17. Structurally you're fine.. Just depends on what you want visually. If you're concerned structurally, leave a lip on the front or add one to the back. If you want to be 100% sure, drop the dimensions into the sagulator and see what you get but, pretty sure you're fine.

  18. I think the 1/4 was a wise choice.

  19. 1/4” is what I drilled. I can’t see anything going on these shelves, heavier than the shelves themselves. Probably bed sheets, etc.

  20. I chose the black barrel type hinges as that’s what the original hinges looked like and it’s going to be painted/antiqued and figured that’s what wifey would want. When given the choice, she chose the euro hinges. I quit trying to second guess! Soft close Blum euro hinges bought today with no instructions. What do people without the net do? On a side note, there will be two adjustable shelves in addition to the one fixed shelf. I have just enough 3/4” ply to make these with 1” hardwood banding on the two long sides. However, in doing so, the grain on the top and bottom will be running fr

  21. And I see that Blum makes a soft close euro hinge. Before assembly, I will weigh the parts and call Blum with the dimensions to see how many per door I will need. Thanks!

  22. Apologies if you've answered this elsewhere in this thread but, why not euro hinges? Easy to install and easy to take the doors on/off while you make adjustments..
