Re: Matching Cherry Bedside Cabinets based on T. Rousseau's Plans

To dag200: I'm so sorry I haven't responded before now. I only saw your post today (almost a full year after you posted). Thank you very much for you kind words, I'm glad it may have inspired you and I hope my lack of response didn't counter that inspiration.

Regarding beveling the top, I used the table saw. I have a tall (6 inch, though higher would be better) auxiliary fence that I built to attach to my table saw fence. I tilted the balde to the appropriate angle, stood the top on its end and using push sticks rand it through. There was some clean up to be done with a block plane, but otherwise it worked very well. I hope this helps. If you have other questions or need clarity, please let me know.

Regards!

Re: Small Cabinet

I just wanted to say thank you for the plans and the video series. They helped me emmensely as I built two of these cherry cabinets for my 5th anniversary. I posted photos in the readers gallery: http://www.finewoodworking.com/item/35280/matching-cherry-bedside-cabinets-based-on-t-rousseaus-plans
It was certainly a challenge, but a lot of fun. Thanks again.
