Alright, I’ve cut the wood for the bookshelf. Just need to break out the kreg jig and get those drilled.

I’ve got the frame cut for the shaker door for the medicine cabinet done. Will need to cut a small groove with the dada blade on my table saw for the inlay.

All the pieces for the cabinet are cut. This is looking at it from the back side. Will use the kreg jog to fix the shelves to the outter prices. Loose fit looks good! Disregard the scrap that is lifting up the bottom shelf. Since it isn’t sitting on the door frame, it sits 19mm lower than the rest of the cabinet.

Setting up the dado now. Bonus, the only metric tape measures in all of Indiana right here. Only one I could find.

Sheesh, grammar in that last post is terrible. Time for another sissy drink before we get into these kreg holes.

About done for the day. I’ll get all of the kreg holes drilled and will assemble and paint tomorrow. Might Swells are gone after this one and who wants to work in the heat without a tasty drink.

Done for today. Will wrap it all up tomorrow. That’ll be assembling with kreg screws and glue and finally painting. I forgot I need to go buy a small pane of glass and some frosting paint. That’ll be what goes inside the dado channel. I think it’ll look pretty awesome.

Alright, this is assembled. Going to redo the doors frame after I do the bookshelf. When I was showering last night thinking about the doors, I realized that my channels would get in the way of the the butt joint. So I’ll have to come back to them.

Any who, here is the medicine cabinet, not painted of course.

Alright, going to be drinking a lot today. This humidity and heat are wrecking me. My hair goes nuts in this environment. Building must continue.
