  1. Turned out nice if you ever need help with something let me know I work for Joe Munson studios in kansas city....
  2. That top will have to expand and contract. Why I didn't use solid wood on my bar. Used tile instead...
  3. There is a Bosch 1617 kit with the plunge that nobody likes, Iq may offer one of my PC 690 kits with plunge and trade. Tells you what I'm thinking.....
  4. They can but a few pins don't mean anything. It only matter if the dovetails are so sloppy the nails and glue are needed to support the drawer so it doesn't fall apart... Now let's imagine you made 12" wide dovetail drawers and let the parts sit a few weeks and few are now warped. Do you glue walk away or would you put clamps on or a couple pins to assure there will be no movement while they dry?
  5. We used poured epoxy but finished them with a dulling finish. The ones in the picture are a awaiting the final finish..
  6. We do a lot of slab tables for retaurants and there offices. There is a a lot of money on the purchase end as well as the selling end.....
  7. The Bosch comes up in every discussion. I like Dewalt but the Bosch would be my next purchase. Nice to have a d-handle too...
  8. I've got two Dewalt 12v cordless screw guns from 2001. Batteries went bad I expect from constant trickle charge when not being used weeks at a time. $60 each from home depot for the Dewalt XRP batteries. I'll continue to buy unless I move up to Makita....
  9. If your not after the joinery a torsion box shelf will work as well...
  10. Maybe as a precaution. I will sometimes drop a few nails in just in case the glue fails....
  11. So there hand cutting them and because there lose gluing and stapling them?
  12. This is an AMISH shop making these dovetails ?
  13. A lot of money today is on the finish end. $100 cabinet and $500 paint job...
  14. Most of the shops today find more money in purchasing flutes, rosettes, etc online and pinning them on more profitable than they can pay the employee... Hard to find a shop doing it by hand like me...
  15. The price of cabinets these days don't warrant furniture making. Yet high end,custom is anything other than a standard box... Quality standards are up to the manufacturer...
