>Painted wardrobes

>Been breaking down all of the oak veneered mdf yesterday, and today. Because all of my carcases are going to be the same depth, I thought I would cut all of the sheets in half. When I know they are all the same depth, I stack all the sheets on top of each other, get my track saw, and cut away. This saves me having to mark any of the others out once this first sheet is marked.

I then just line my track up with this light scribe line on all the subsequent boards.

Which gives me a big stack of boards ready to be cut to length on my saw bench.

Got the all of the first wardrobe carcases made up this afternoon.

Just before this Lie-Nielsen no4 arrived….
Haven’t had a chance to play around with it yet, but first impressions are, it seems a very nice solid plane. It certainly feels much heavier than my USA made bailey, but the handle might need a bit of fettling to fit my gnormus mitts. 
I’ve Been quoting for more wardrobes today…..mustn’t grumble but it would be nice to do some free standing furniture for a change though, thanks for looking.

    >All too true of course Matty, there doesn't seem to be much call for free standing, at least around here. Really glad you are liking the blog mate, thanks.

    >Unfortunately I never seem to get the time to go to any of the woody events, I've been working 7 days a week for some time now. Maybe next year hey…I now a few of the forum members on woodworkuk and ukworkshop go to a few, and say they are worth going too, just for the tool deals.
