    Thanks. Mine will be on the bottom.

    Pecan wood

    I really like working with pecan. OP, what’s your source, since we share the same back yard?

    Thanks Dave. Just something else to complicate my life! I’ve been wanting to try new stuff, and it’s my wife’s table, so what the hey!

    My drawers are only 16” wide so maybe a little overkill but good idea.

    So, in addition to Chet’s, that’s three for no dt’s and that’s good enough for me. Thanks guys.

    No need for that. All I want is your lumber and doggie.

    Spanky, can you get your dog bathed and cleaned up a bit. I’ve already got him clearance on my return flight as a service animal. He’ll love Houston’s heat and humidity

    HELP need repair ideas!

    Can’t really tell from the pics but my guess, hopefully, the base is plywood or something similar. @Bombarde16‘s recommendation is as good as any. Several cauls (goggle it) and clamps will be required. Luckily, I don’t think the top pieces are veneer, giving you plenty of sanding thickness. Good luck ma’am. You have your work cut out for you. Let us know of the outcome.

    Kelci, so you bought it sight unseen? You say the bottom is solid, solid what! Plywood, mdf, ? From the pics, it appears that the top is not veneer but thicker pieces of wood. Not sure where the line begins? @Bombarde16 is more optimistic than I am. Wood moves and it did.

    @curlyoak and @gee-dub, do you guys ever use dt’s on the runners? I just pulled a drawer from our dresser and the double runners are on the drawer. Is one preferred over the other?

    This time I was not a day late and a dollar short

    You should be ashamed! Nice score.

    And welcome to the forum. I take it you’re from Houston? ,

    See @Chet project Journal, sideboard. Having never done bottom drawer guides, I’m going to follow his lead. Side guides/slides depend on too much on .the case being exactly square.

    Model 390 Orbital sander

    I thnk the Domino, ETS 150 and the vac are my limit. Just for the heck of it, I changed the filter in front of my window a/c and on the Jet air filtering unit three days ago, prior to two days of sanding and there is very little walnut dust on either. I’m sold. And on my current build, it’s so convenient to disconnect from the Domino to the ROS and vice versa.

    Sapele Resawing and Planing

    I think you’re about to screw yourself out of a perfectly good piece of wood. I’ve never dealt with Sapele but wouldn’t try it with nice walnut or maple. Two’s the most I would try. Good luck bud.
