Made some more progress on the doors and drawer fronts

First I set up for the crosscuts, I used blue tape on the stiles to insure I didn't inadvertently cut them.

I also got the door panels glued up and got the two panels for the vanity stained so I can spray them in the morning and glue up the doors later in the day.

 

Does that featherboard work well? And, does it only run in the miter slot?

I will jump in here and give you my opinion.  I have the same feather board and really like it.  Yes it only fits in the miter slot.  I bought mine just to use on my band saw.  It is pretty adjustable though, you pull the black lever on top of the handle, this allows the feather board to slide back and forth in the black track on the bottom.  Simple release the lever, push it against the wood for the pressure you need to keep you work properly against the fence then lock the lever.

You didn't make the movie poster frames did you? Have any recommendations? I got a poster in the mail yesterday that is the shape and size of a movie poster but is for a book. I want to hang it somewhere but don't really want to make a frame.

Drew they are backlit frames for double sided posters. Having said that if you google snap lock picture frames you should see options out there.
