Assembly Required

A bit of a teaser. Here are all the components to build for now 29 drawer/door fronts, and 11 drawer boxes. One drawer to house a couple garbage/recylcing cans is done, but that is it. All pieces are fully milled, just need to be put together, finished and installed.

You are seeing the drawer box materials at the front which are Baltic birch. The doors and drawer fronts are red oak.

Not a chance, supervising is one of my best attributes. Other than when it comes to Lisa, she does not do good with me telling her what to do.

'tis a bit of a puzzle, but all the pieces are there, unless you slipped by and snuck a few out, and in that case I might have to hunt you down, and do evil things to you.

Actually in Jims defense, he has already done the hard part. Cutting, sanding applying the finish is the most time consuming part of the process. The assembling goes rather quickly. I used use to build custom cabinet when I was cutting my teeth on drinking beer lmao lord that was so long ago hahahaha

A quality job!

I toured the Airstream factory earlier this month and was surprised to see, from the brief glimpse that the tour allowed, that their cabinetry is held together by pocket screws! Not much adhesive in evidence.
Jim, your glued biscuit joints are built for the ages! But I must ask, are you replacing the stock drawers and door fronts, restoring an older camper or completing a shell?
