Re: Post A Picture Of Your Current Job -- Part II


The trash pullout has a shelf that can hold trash bags and deodorizers, or whatever. Normally I'd put the trash in the front and the shelf for the bags goes in the rear. But he wanted it backwards. I resisted and tried to talk him out of it, but that's what he wanted, so that's what he gets.

Gotta make it over. He doesn't like the hardware showing. There goes 3 hours.

Re: Post A Picture Of Your Current Job -- Part II


Finished up table construction this weekend.



I've never been a big fan of the sash lock type locks to hold the table sections tight so I cut in for table yokes.

Since the center leaf won't be used 99.9% of the time, I needed some place to store it. Under the table works good but the table aprons attached to the leaf causes problems. So, I made those removable with a few keyhole slots.


Here's everything tucked in underneath.


And the table top all sanded out.


Only thing left is my least favorite thing, a few coats of finish.

When I first saw the pics and video, I thought the same thing. Plus, it looks like juices and stuff will roll off the board and into the glides. What a pain to keep clean.

The customer is right this time.

Current job is an absolute cluster... Plugging away with long days to get it done by late Wednesday.
Minor reno... Two bathrooms, all new flooring, all new trim, one new window.
Forgot my material supports today and had to improvise.

Re: Post A Picture Of Your Current Job -- Part II


That's what he says. Even if you put the hardware under it, if you put a juicy pc of meat on there then the juices will just roll over the sides and get on the hardware anyway.

I cut off the sides of the cutting board, glued a couple more strips on and then cut a 5/8" rabbet on the edges of the underside. I'll move the slides in 1/4" and that will hide the slides underneath. I did it the way I did it so both sides of the cutting board could be used, now only one side can be used.

Thatís going to be the most expensive cutting board ever.

I love the idea too, but cringe knowing veggie remnants will be finding their way into that cabinet.

It's not just a cutting board, it's a system. If it was just a cutting board I'd of been done in about and hour.

Even my parents cabinets have a built in cutting board. Just the cheesy pc of plywood that slides out with no hardware at all. Talk about grime getting into the cabinets. But there are thousands of them out there just like that.

At least this one you can clean easily.

Itís a lose lose kind of situation with a cutting board like that. Iíd give him an extra pair of slides for when the originals get so gross they stop functioning.

Couple of questions:
For the veneer, did you bag it, or do a cold press?
What did you use for a balanced veneer on the other side?
What adhesive did you use, Unibond 800, or other?
How are you going to finish--solvent/WB..?
Looks good, always like some variation on the top veneer, instead of just plain old maple/cherry etc.
