Fitting in

The final carcass construction for the hanging wall cabinet requires a lot of fine tuning of the drawer dividers and shelves. Even on a small piece like this, dialing in the thickness of the dividers and notching everything out to create a nice clean joint really makes the difference in a hand-built piece. Any gaps or loose joints will definitely get noticed, especially in the drawer dividers where there's nowhere to hide. This short episode also shows how important hand tools are even if you have a predominantly electron-fueled shop. Then, in the next episodes I will focus on the door fronts and then the curved drawers.

Is anyone able to watch the video?

John F said...

Nope. it's on Blip TV and I don't have their "player".

Sorry guys, not sure why it's not working for some people. I've tested it myself on a number of browsers, and the embedded video is working fine (although Blip has added a preroll ad despite my having turned ads off). You can always view directly on YouTube as well. This episode is at http://youtu.be/c8fquT5IjYY?list=UUPXGRT1Zh7qMwDVEk68_mMg

So it looks like it plays fine from your page now. Weird. I'm on a different computer, but it definitely did not work from my iPad when I was at home...I'll check it out tonight.

Ah, that's the problem. The embedded Blip player in the blog is Flash-based, so it wouldn't work on a mobile device or iPad that doesn't support Flash. The YouTube version would be your best bet from an Android or iOS device.
