  1. Since you got me curious Steve I drew out my ply cuts ... 2 sheets is plenty as long as a bigger piece doesn't get messed up haha
  2. well if I really squeeze things on the ply I could probably get it done in 2 sheets, but that would be without any accidents or needing to recut anything. It is some big pieces as this will be around 4' x 3' cabinet. The poplar has a 25% fudge factor built in as well ... so that was like 12 BF of just in case ... if that is why you are implying that I may be over estimating ?? Yes wood movement was my big concern, but poplar doesnt seem to move as much from what I have seen so it would be minimal and would be taken into account as well just in case.
  3. I am going to need to build a new wall cabinet for our bathroom because we have a huge open wall and are running low on storage space. For the most part it would hold the basics ... towels and bathroom/shower stuff. All the cabinets I see that I like are $200+ so I figured why not do it myself then and most likely save money and it be better quality (Hopefully ) The wall where it is going to go is here, right above the ironing board: So far my design is below .... Nothing spectacular, but it should be very efficient for where it is going and hold plenty. I was wanting to make it out of some nice wood, however when I pitched the idea to my wife ... of course she wanted something bright in there since it is a little dark. Sooooo white it is, which means some form of plywood and poplar. I was debating making it fully out of poplar thought just because. The price would be a little cheaper for poplar as well since from what I can see it would run me about 60ish BF of poplar coming in at around $1.6-1.8 a BF puts me right around $100 and if I went full ply with poplar face frames that would be 3 sheets of ply ~$50 plus poplar so looking at $160-175. Is there any reason I should not go full poplar? Yes plywood would be easier and a lot less milling ... Hopefully I will be picking the wood up today if poplar is the way to go to let it get acclimated for a few days .. If I go pl it will be next week. Thoughts?
  4. Got a little more done on this. Got an idea sketched out. It will be going here above the ironing board. Although I talked to the wife and she was wanting something light which in her world means white and so it looks like the wood of choice for this build will be the wonderful species of poplar [emoji108] All in all it looks to be around 50BF of poplar which I can hopefully get picked up this week and let it get acclimated for a week or so. No work this weekend since it's the wife's birthday haha. I will be posting a journal once I go buy the wood.
  5. I am going to need to build a new wall cabinet for our bathroom because we have a huge open wall and are running low on space. For the most part it would hold the basics ... towels and bathroom/shower stuff. All the cabinets I see that I like are $200+ so I figured why not do it myself then and most likely save money and it be better quality. I am not sure on a design yet ... nothing too crazy. Not sure if I want all open or doors or a mix of both. Maybe open on top and then a full slide out drawer on the bottom? Wood - not sure either ... our bathroom is white/gray color combo. So nothing really stands out as being an amazing accent color so I think I am wide open for options. I was also thinking of nice plywood, maple or burch and just edge band a nice accent color on. Finish ... will need to be water/steam proof since it is in the bathroom. Recommendations on that? ARS?
  6. Just saw this on FB. Get back to the store and get more green Shane [emoji1][emoji1]
  7. Oh awesome! Cant wait to see this because that is an awesome idea hooking it into the OF table!
  8. haha I like the intro there! How many hours of sanding did you have to put in to get this wrapped up? Looks amazing though! When we will get to see the planer stand hooked up to the table to see how that goes?
  9. looking great! That top is going to really pop once finished!
  10. either should be fine as long as both are against the fence and you have enough room to keep your hands safely away from the blade. I would assume it is just personal preference and depending on how wide the boards all because I like to cut wider boards flat and not standing.
  11. just getting caught back up on this ... amazing looking OF table there! great work as always! Cant wait to see the final couple videos
  12. man I am gone for a couple weeks for the holidays and come back to all this amazingness! great progress Shane! all that bubinga in the burn bin
  13. What do y'all think that black thing is that the bottle goes into? That looks the easiest to build and just put it in a wood box
  14. Oh that's a good idea. I'll take a look. Pretty good idea but just was trying not to have to hang it
  15. Ya I'm thinking the inside is like a water cooler at the office. Where the basin fills up to the bottle and then stops. Just need to find some stainless steel parts lol
