Wanted to see if this works. Been using Google's Picasa to organize
photos, and wanted to see how it works for showing off wooddorking
projects on the wReck.
Here's a "Picasa Web Album" of a hutch project I just completed:
Let me know if this simple version of the link works, if you will ... if
not, I'll post another by reply.
(And THANKS to Leon, once again, for the helping hand, both in moving
this beast around in the shop many times during fabrication, and for
making the trek to Austin to help deliver and install it ... a better
woodworking buddy and friend exists not!!)
None whatsoever ... Picasa is a free download, and you get 1 GB of
To tell the truth, what made me give it a try was having to download
your individual photos ... I did the whole thing after doing so from
from your post.
In your case, downloading individual photos was worth it, not so with
all the rest of us! :)
It also saves a lot of trouble doing web pages and uploading them ...
will probably combine the two methods in the future, gives everyone options.
I'm going to try that later on today or tomorrow, using the photos
from that post you mentioned just to see how it goes.
I'd put up more photos if it didn't take so many steps. I miss having
access to ABPW but not enough to pay for NG access.

Yes indeed. I use Astraweb now (since the death of Verizon) exclusively.

Nice, Karl..! Color matching with table looks perfect.. Looks like it was
part of original dining room set..! That's the first time I've seen the
face frame attached so early in the case construction. I can see the
advantage of being able to clamp face frame, particularly mullion more
easily and efficiently to carcase. Which of course you couldn't if back was
attached first. Interesting. Thanks for sharing. Always learn something
from your pictures.. -Jim
It is a very efficient way to make a bunch of cabinets, like when doing
a kitchen, but probably not the best method for freestanding projects
like hutches, where frame and panel would be a more traditional method
for a hutch ... and, I would have normally used another method for the
In this case it was done this way because I did two identical hutches at
the same time, one going in a kitchen (with a built-in toe kick and
installed as you would any kitchen base and wall cabinet); and the other
which was to be freestanding and to be used in a dining room.
(The mother of the kitchen client saw the 3D drawings of her daughter's
kitchen I did and ordered a hutch for her own dining room " ... just
like the one going in her daughter's kitchen"!)
Ask, and you shall receive ... :)
Knowing this, it made sense to do both the carcasses at the same time as
part of a production run of cabinets for the kitchen, while material was
on hand and the shop and machines were setup for the kitchen job.
The only difference between the FF for the two is the bottom rail of the
one pictured is 1" wider than the one going in the kitchen, so it
could be set on a separately made base. And of course one cabinet has a
toe kick built in, and a counter top to match the rest of the kitchen,
and the other is on a tradional cabinet base and has a wooden "counter top"
However, when all is said and done, only another cabinetmaker would know
that the freestanding hutch is basically a modified kitchen base cabinet
with a top. :)
And thanks for the kind words!!
