Miter station [Finished]

I think this came out great! As far as the drawer fronts. Evey one tries to shoot for perfect square but i'd be a lot of people's cabinets end up a hair off. Personally i make doors and everything a hair oversize and then scribe and cut to perfect size. If that cabinet is 1/64" out of square it gets reflected perfectly in the door or drawer. It's maybe too bad the Cletus wood ended up here but hey your shop cabinets look great!.

Quiet nice dude! Will it live where it’s at in the 5th pic?

Yeah right in front of garage door. Easiest place because the dust collection runs.

Great recovery Cliff! I think maybe I’ll never have the problem of too many Festool systainers unless I come across with the winning NJ powerball ticket and I’ve never been to Jersey.

Hahaha. Well it's definitely a space issue. Unless i can figure out a good way to store them in the place that I use them most I'm working on some ideas.

Bought out the stock of all Home Depots drawer slides, then Lowes as well. I wanted good slides, but not top of the line. I paid around $20 per set. They aren't self close, but that is ok.

For $20 per slide, you could have gotten Blum soft close and had money left over.

If you don't have access to wholesale sources, Lee Valley has a decent selection of slides at good quality/price ratios. For example, they have 16" full extension self closing slides that are very good for less than $15/pair.

Everyone has access. I've posted several times here where to go.

I don't recall, but even so, by the time I pay shipping & import fees that usually pushes the prices into the unreasonable range.

Just a FYI for your next shop project, these slides are $6 and change per pair with free shipping.  They are nice quality slides.  https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01MZ1UJ1L/ref=ask_ql_qh_dp_hza

Thanks I may pick some up because I'm going to put pull out trays in my outfeed table for the festool stuff.

I bought the Promark slides from Amazon on the recommendation of James King from King's Fine Woodworking.  They were $75 for a 10 pack of 26", full-extension ball-bearing slides rated for 100 lbs.  They are pretty nice slides, especially for the price.

So I started my door.

Fill me in a little bit Cliff, interior or exterior door? I've been pondering building a couple of exterior doors is my reason for asking, good to hear you're on the mend, don't push it to hard but i understand its tough to be out of the shop for any length of time.

Just a simple interior miter station door. It is not inset though if that's what you meant. This is my first door of any kind.
