measure twice and still mess it up!

Furnished content.
(from WoodNet.net)


So on my kitchen cabinet build, there is a bank of 6 drawers, frameless full overlay cabinets, undermount soft close slides that mount to the inside walls of the carcass.

I measured, twice even, and told myself not to make this mistake (since I almost made it on another bank of drawers which I did properly.)... but I messed it upanyway!

I made the front and backs of all 6 boxes in this particular drawer bank too short - essentially I made the outer dimensions (left to right) what the inner dimension needed to be to fit over the slides.

I'm hemming and hawing between going out and buying more maple, acclimating it, milling it down and making new fronts and backs for these 6 drawers, or just putting 3/8" spacers between the slides and the cabinet walls to make up for it. With the drawers closed you'd never know the difference.. with them open, I suppose if you were looking for it, you'd see it.. what to do.. what to do...

What white opaque finish would you use?

Posting up here for better traffic.

I'm getting ready to help a friend finish a new set of kitchen cabinets and 3 vanities. This is new construction finishing in place. I believe poplar frames and mdf middle fields. The color will be an off white SW 7008 Alabaster color.

I am leaning heavily towards a white tinted pre cat solvent based lacquer. Also thinking a Gemini product unless I have to go SW for the color. I try to avoid SW because they're always more expensive for me. Great products but not always best value, IMO.

I'll be using an airless Graco sprayer with fine finish tip. It will pump and atomize pretty much anything.

What finish would you use? I know there's a lot of new products out there that I haven't been able to use. The architectural trim will be painted with Ben Moore Advanced waterbourne enamel trim paint.

Wood thickness

Furnished content.
(from WoodNet.net)


I am wanting to make my daughter a baton case similar to what is shown. Her handle os 0.8" in diameter so I was going to use a 1" box core bit to make the slot for the handle. I was going to make the slot 0.5" deep on both sides. My question is how thin can I have the wood between the bottom of the slot and the outside of the case? I don't want to do more than 1/4" but I was wondering if I could go as thin as 1/8"? The shaft slot is getting a 1/4" box core bit about 1/4" deep. I am not worried about that one.

Apply a professional, quick-drying and durable finish at home. You may have heard of catalyzed finishes: pre-catalyzed lacquer, post-catalyzed lacquer and catalyzed or conversion varnish. These finishes are commonly used in industry and in cabinet and professional refinishing shops. …Source
