I'm a software engineer by trade and have a little hobby shop in half of my garage.
Oh, that's a good idea! I was planning on replacing all of the screws to match and never got around to it but I think I might have to now!
Stupid brass screws...
Nice! Looks like you spun the head off a couple of screws. Been there! Just take a drop of super glue and glue the head on the empty hole.
Thanks @Sean ! It was a big part of the look I was going for and I'm glad I spent the time on the extra milling to get this result.
That's a great looking cabinet. I think you nailed it with grain selection. I love the straight grain. Thanks for sharing!
Yes, I thought about sliding dovetails for the dividers but decided against because I actually liked the look of stopped dados just as much.
As far as the drawer fronts goes, yes, that's what I would typically do. The challenge I had is that I only had one board that had lot's of knots and checks. I wasn't sure how much it would yield so I made sure to mill and cut that oversize first. From there it helped guide the dimensions of the case and dividers. The drawers were cut to final dimension and fit at the end.
Nice exercise in dovetails! For your next project you could attach the carcass dividers with sliding dovetails to complete the dovetail motif. Also typically you would make the carcass first and then fit the drawers to that. I find making my own pulls for small projects is better than using store bought too.
@WoodGate Thanks for the suggestion! Never something I thought about for a table top but something I might consider trying on my next table or box. I've never done an inlay before so it should be fun to give it a try :)
