    Geez, that looks good! Might as well be next to ad copy for some boutique brand ("...our cabinets are crafted to the highest standards, and their rigidity is unparalleled ...")

    Re: O.T. Hey, Pete...

    I replied to your private email of a couple of days ago and have been waiting on a direct reply from you so I can get going on what you asked me to do.

    I guess either an over sized pattern with a bushing or a pattern bit would be equally effective.. I think we're on the same page. I'm just a glutton for punishment!:D

    Some pics of today's progress:

    w00t!:D
    Did you consider making a template and using a guide bushing to cut those curvy parts? It seems like it would have been a little easier that way, you'd only have to make one part with any degree of precision the rest would be pretty straight forward copies. I'd have at least tried it, I probably would have failed, but I'd have tried.

    Same as last time; 3 layers of 3mm Birch plywood. Worked so well last time, figured there's no reason to change things up. Though I did consider trying a dozen or so layers of heavy cardboard.. might have to try that on the side; see how it works.

    I've considered doing something like this but the sides in fiberglass just to see what its like, make something light and try glass for the first time...

    I've been using picasa for a while, ever since somebody said one of my image shack links gave them a porn popup. Picasa is quite nice. When you view an image you'll see "link to image" on the right, click that, choose "image only" and then there is a drop down box with 3 or 4 size selections for the link, something like 200, 400 or 800. This is quite nice because it means you get to keep the original image but link different sizes. I think there is also a "resize to web size on upload, which I use to shrink my 10 megapixel images down to 1600x1200, still large but much more useable on the web, and they can be shrunken smaller if you choose.
