1. “It’s getting heavier all the time!” But Paul, you’ve cut away half of the wood you started with!

    That thought made me giggle. It’s a beautiful project, so interesting to see it come together.

    1. As 4/4 stock is often 3/4″ final size, you would be 1/2″ thinner. This would make all the joinery to a tighter tolerance. Strength-wise it should work fine, but the appearance will be different. But you could add a lip to the front to make it appear thicker.

  2. Space permitting, the assembly may be easier on the floor (especially if you don’t have to film it).

    Great design! Thank you for the teaching! I used the tapered housing dados recently, following you. The work very nice!
