Here you go
Thanks. I wanted to use your pictures to show how the Domino might be
used in place of the VS600 dovetailing jig. Someone was wondering if
he needed to buy the VS600 after buying the Domino. Although, my post
may only serve to confuse him further.
As far as drawers go, I don't understand why all in the universe are not
made of 3/4" maple. Makes the prettiest damn drawer around.
Well, besides the cost ...
Good looking drawers, furniture, etc. Leon.
And I like the power line duck.
Oh! so you were snooping around! LOL... Glad you did and glad you
enjoyed it.. The duck is something isn't it? Swingman identified it as
a Whistling Duck. I see them almost daily in our neighborhood. They
have a very distinctive "Quack"? and they immediately draw my attention.
I used to torment them with my BB gun as a kid. They are the only duck I
ever saw that will sit on telephone wire, especially one with
under-hanging tree limbs below, where I could sneak up on them and get
into BB gun range.
And NO, they don't make good gumbo ... my Nana told me that, but at nine
years old and finally getting my hands on a weapon that would let me bag
one, I had to try anyway. She was right.
I have a little gallon and a half cooler I carry with me on canoe trips. The handle squeaks exactly like a woodduck sounds. I've often squeaked it, when paddling near some unsuspecting Cajun fishermen, out in the lake at Chicot State Park. Those guys would be looking all over for them ducks. LOL.

As long as they didn't "sneak behind a little patch of grass and make
like dey hide ..."
Each project is different but in this case I put 4, 1" Pocket hole
screws in from the the inside of the box into the front.
I had a jig for spacing the false front to the box.
In bigger cabinet drawers I do the same with but I use 1.125" pocket
holes screws and let them protrude through the draw front a little bit.
Then I align the false front and press it against the screws to make
indexing marks on the back side of the false front. I then open the
drawer realign the screws with the marks and drive the screws into those
Now if I have the pulls in advance I mark the holes on the front of the
false front for the pull and drive the pocket hole screws in at that
point, from the front of the false front into the drawer, open the
drawer and put 4 pocket hole screws in from the inside to securely
attach the false front to the drawer and remove the 2 screws in the
front where the pull will be located and use the regular machine thread
screws in those holes for the pulls.

One other question about the woodworking you do. I've noticed that you
like to build with combinations of contrasting wood. How easily
obtainable are those different woods down where you're located?
Up where I live, there's similar varieties of wood, but I'd have to
look much harder for it and the cost would go up exponentially.
Well, actually the contrast you see is mostly between the same species
hard wood and plywood. That said however, do you use a clear finish or
do you stain. I try my best to only use a clear varnish The 3 book
cases all pretty much use the same color/shade of white oak. With the
clear finish I use however the contrast changes, depending on the angle
that the board is at and or the light angle. For instance the if you
look at the cabinets from the front a side rail might appear dark,
viewed at the same angle from the rear with the light coming at a
different angle the rail looks lighter. By the same token if I rotate
the wood 90 degrees it may go from light to dark.
Ahhhh.. To give a very good example of what I am talking about look at
both links below
Look specifically at the lower cabinet doors on the right hand side.
Notice on one picture the bottom door rails appear to be light and the
stiles appear to be dark.
Now look at the picture below and the same bottom doors that is taken
from the other angle. Notice that the door rails now appear to be
darker than the stiles.
