    Miter station build

    Drill drawer update. My drill bit/12v drill storage is atrocious and I need to get it organized. I made a "simple" holder for the drills/impacts/batteries/and attachments for the flexiclick. Turned out alright. They still fit tight. I originally had them facing downward but it was too tall for the drawer that way. If I was going to do it this way I would have used the next size up in forstner bit. Oh well. I'll hit it with sand paper and a rasp. Next was the forstner bits. Half of my bits we're in a case and the rest were still on the blister packs. Those of course do not store well. Using another piece of scrap plywood I cut it to width and then made a grid. I then laid out the pieces with approximate equal spacing. Much faster than mathing it all out. Last was the bit storage for the self centering bits, countersink bits, and plug cutters. I had a good spot on the right side of the drawer for this. I elevated the holder for easier access and replacement of the bits. I made another grid and drilled an 8mm hole (just bigger than the 1/4" shank) and drilled out my spacing. I drilled more than needed so I can add more pieces and move things around if needed. There was a lot of tear out even with the Brad point bits I was using. Overall I am MUCH happier with how this turned out. I had been scratching my head for the longest time about a solution to the drawer. I got everything back in except for the milescraft drill guide. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    The last drawer is currently in glue up. I planed and sanded some of the drawer joints. Didn't turn out too bad. I didn't get some of the bottom cherry sides pushed in all the way so there was a decent amount of planing there. Overall happy so far. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    Router/trimmers

    i doubt any will fit. routers usually have their own design for raising and lowering the router in the base.

    Simple fix to a dumb mistake. I managed to move my marking gauge when I did the scribe line on the nightstand drawers. This made the sides short of the face of the fronts. To make this a simple fix I got the depth needed for my router bit from the recess on the front. Then I used a marking gauge to sever the word on the back side. I then took the router and routed out the wood needed to make the sides flush with the front. This worked amazingly well and took no time at all. I also got all of the drawer bottoms cut. I started to sand and sanded all of the interiors of the drawers. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    Guild modern chest of drawers and nightstand

    Lot of work done the past two days. I got all of the drawer fronts and sides of the dresser marked out and cut. First the band saw to establish the outer lines of the cut and the the box joint jig to cut the waste out. I didn't get a chance to chisel them out until today. I don't like hammering that late at night. These joints fit PERFECT! A nice snug fit and essentially flush. So much happier with these joints than the joints on the night stand. I also filled some knots and splits in the wood with epoxy. I used clear for the cherry pieces and tinted it black for the walnut piece. Pics of before and after I scraped the epoxy with a card scraper. Today I cut the dados for the backs and trimmed the runner guides to width. My dado stack wasn't quite a 1/2" for the back dado so I used the drum sander to finesse them to the right fit. Having the drum sander for this build has been awesome.

    What I think I am going to do is take a router and use the gap on the front (the space the sides fall short of reaching the front) and then flip the piece over and route the back sides of the drawer front box joints. This will flush up the fronts. Then on the sides I'll glue them up and use a flush trim bit. I got all of the dresser drawers sized today. Aside from the backs being cut to length. I couldn't be happier so far. I will need to fill a spot in the bottom front piece with some epoxy Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    First drawer front. Kinda irritated. Somehow my marking gauge must have moved and made my line deeper than it should have been. My test cuts before were perfectly flush. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    Alright...it's been a while since an update. I planed all of the drawer pieces to thickness and rough cut them to length and width. To aid with making the box joints for the front of the drawers I made the ultimate box joint jig by ibuildit.ca. I'll use a band saw to make the cut lines and then use the box joint jig to gog out the waste. Jig works well when you remember to change the height setting between pieces. I'll use a dado stack next time though to go faster. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    Box joint jig

    I'll throw this up here too as well as the other thread. I kind of did a hybrid with the jig. I used the band saw to get my cut lines then I used the jig to cut out the waste. It works well of you remember to change the height setting. [emoji23] I will probably do a dado stack next time though. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    Box joint jig

    I am building the wood whisperer guild modern chest of drawers and nightstand. For the build thread check the woodworking section. The drawer fronts are put together with box joints. In the video he makes them with the bandsaw and table saw. I decided to make the John heitz's, ibuildi.ca on youtube, box joint jig. It took around 2 days to make. Lots of gluing and drying time. So far so good. It takes a little figuring out with the right amount of clicks to do to get the right sized joints. The beauty of this setup is I can make the box joints different sizes all in the same joint. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
