This project to build two new bathroom cabinets is part of a bigger project to replace the plumbing system in our house.  In this video I will be removing the old cabinets and  building the new cabinets.  I will do the installation of the new cabinets in the next video. The two cabinets are very similar, each consisting of a section for a sink and a section with two banks of drawers.  The sink section is a simple box with doors on the front.  The drawer section will have two columns of drawers; one bathroom will be 3 drawers tall and the other 4 drawers tall.  The counter tops are plastic laminate, one orange and one black.  The structure is made from 3/4 inch pre-finished birch plywood.

The sink in the kids bathroom is in.  The other sink was missing a bolt that holds the faucet in place.

These bookends are made from walnut and birch.  The design idea was to abstract a half open book.  The form is an “L” representing the binding and a quarter of a segmented wood turned piece representing the pages in the “L.”  The piece is solid to make it as heavy as possible to help hold back the books.

Clamping the segmented section for the bookends.  I thought I had cut the wedges at 18 degrees but they were 17.2 and that added up over 20 segments. I had to add an extra wedge.

In this video, I make a piece of maple firewood.  I start by removing the finish from a back roller I made a little over a year ago.  I proceed by roughing up the surface with sandpaper. This allows me to build the shape into a cylinder.  From the cylinder I can make the final form of the firewood.  Happy April Fools
