    If you're starting out with this type of joint, you should lookup drawboring too; it can make even a sloppy and loose joint snug and clean.

  • Bench Hooks: a Woodworker's Secret Weapon

    Traditional bench hooks were usually made of one piece (two cut from the same length of stock at a time), and seldom more than a few inches wide. Im glad to see someone else making wide bench hooks as I do, mine are just under 12 inches wide.

    MDF Bathroom cupboard

    I know its because it was leftover materials you had, but MDF in a bathroom environment? Paint, many layers of paint; oil based if possible. I only use MDF for templates or jigs when I don't have anything else. I personally loathe the stuff, high humidity and it begins to degrade structurally, and if it gets wet don't bother salvaging; like a cookie soaking in milk for an hour.Good design overall. I like the doors, contemporary without looking dated. Great job.
