474 Shelves and drawers pt 4

January 15, 2012

It’s a new year, but we have a little work to finish up from the previous year.  As promised, today’s episode is the wrap up to our “Shelves and drawers” series.

In part four we complete the “Shelves and drawers” by building the drawer fronts from solid maple, attaching the bases to each of the units and then adding all the final touches from painting to hardware.

A lot of you had questions about using MDO; its workability, paintability, cost and more.  Rather than addressing each of your questions as they come in, I tried to include all of them in the video.  Hopefully I answer yours, but if not, don’t hesitate to contact me.

    Great episode Matt. Just thought of another sealer for the exposed sides of the MDO. What about using watered down white PVA glue as a sort of a sizing (yes, pronounced seizing)? Perhaps also mixing in a bit of the MDO sawdust into the glue as well, prior to applying it. If scuffed up with some 180 or 220 sandpaper and primed properly, it should be paintable.

    Cheers, John

      Interesting idea! I’ll have to consider that for one of the projects that might be coming up with the scraps left from this one.
