    No, far from it!
  2. To all the dads, a happy Father's Day to you!
  3. That dark spot will go away with paint...
  4. 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.
  5. They help hide the pins as well.
  6. https://woodbin.com/calcs/sagulator/ I use it a lot!
  7. 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.
  8. Not sure there's too many people without internet anymore.. Just a few that are challenged by the internet..
  9. 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..
  10. If you're staining, this is a good time to get your blotch control on them! Looking good!
  11. The Blum glides will cut down on the amount of hand planing you have to do!
  12. If your doors are inset, the drawer front should be as well. If the doors are overlay, then the drawer front should be as well..
  13. Attaching a drawer front (even a raised panel) is much easier to do to a false drawer front. Connecting the drawer box without the false front can be done (and is often done) but, the math becomes much for critical as you only get one shot at it. The glides you chose help that a lot if you choose to skip the false front.
  14. They might but, the ones he ordered are limited to 1/2" to 5/8". I've never looked into glides that accept thicker material.
  15. I've always thought the TS was the way to go with these.. If you have thick material, you're asking a lot of a router bit.
  16. I like Box Joints! Hmm.. Might have to find a creative way to do just another box joint sled...lol
  17. I think you're fine.. 5/8" is fine, just don't go more than that.. More than that and they won't slide nice in the rails. Obviously, square is pretty important if you're maxed on thickness.. For the record, I've run all of my drawer parts at 5/8" because I'd rather "overbuild" .. All my plans call for 1/2" because that's more of a nominal dimension for drawer parts.
  18. I used dowels but, the joinery is irrelevant. The important part is to make sure you leave 1/2" below the drawer bottom for the hardware. Also, the drawer width is pretty important and dependent on the thickness of your drawer material. Blum calls for 1/2" to 5/8" thickness of drawer parts.
  19. I'm hoping to finish up the second construction video tomorrow which has the tricks to avoid the jigs in it. If you need it sooner, let me know and I'll extract it out of that video and create a specific video for you to see. The second video is quite long so, will also take a while to upload. I have no issues creating a special video for you.. I have the footage, just takes a few minutes to edit and about an hour to upload..
  20. I agree with this but, it is possible with just a planer. It is quite a bit more work but, it is possible. I too could argue my top 3 all day because flat and square is the most important part. However, I also realize that there's more than one way to get there.
  21. Apologies.. The affiliate link is now up.. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08NVP9Y17/ref=as_sl_pc_as_ss_li_til?tag=kevswoodwor08-20&linkCode=w00&linkId=658ff8cce786aec77d830a1c614dcc34&creativeASIN=B08NVP9Y17

    The track saw really shines for these long mitered cuts! I did 2 beds with angled headboards and was able to do the glue up right off of the track saw. The only issue comes with the depth.. I haven't used the Kreig but, I know the Festool TS55 won't do a 45 degree angle on 8/4 material. There's a long story about how I know that and it ended in a pretty expensive day as I bought the 55 and a 75 in the same day...lol
  23. Yep, that's how it works.. Much appreciated!
  24. That's interesting but, it works..lol
  25. Yea, it's being added as we speak.. Appreciate it!
