Not as good as I thought!
« on: October 14, 2019, 03:18:29 PM »
The youth center needed a cabinet to hold the microwave and coffee pot.  I was elected to make it.  Thought I would use some Stanley planes to make the trim, used a No. 4, 5 and 220.  I did a lot of wood butchering and gave up.  No, I'm not showing that, already cut it up for firewood.  Went to my edge and thickness planers and router for door tracks and here is the result.

That looks great and there is no way I would have built a cabinet as nice out of wood. I would do better making it out of steel and putting wood grain paper on it. ;D

99% of recent HS grads wouldn't have a clue how to accomplish such work. Looks just fine  :-*

You received a much better education than what's considered to be a "HS Graduate" these days.
