1. I like the quiet, only natural sounds of the work Paul’s doing but I also miss Paul’s commentary as he’s gluing up or otherwise demonstrating/completing a task (even if it’s a “redundant” task). Not bad editing finding a mix between the two. I could however do with more of Paul’s advice, words of wisdom & experience.

  2. This series on basic cabinet making is excellent. No pretense, simple design, good quality, instructive shots of the work itself. Using the common dovetail and rebates throughout is a great way to reduce variables for those of us trying to build up some level of consistency / fluidity / “mental ease” in cabinetry. Thanks very much to everyone in the pipeline for producing such excellent work!

  3. Did Paul explain why he chose to use a false front on his drawers in this piece rather than his usual method of half blind dovetails? Looking at various drawers with false fronts in my house, and elsewhere, it seems they are usually used for several purposes. First, to cover up the inexpensive plywood from which the main drawer is made. Second, for kinds of drawers which are not made to fit flush. This might be done because flush fitting is hard, because the drawer box is made smaller than the opening to accommodate metal slides which are then covered up by the false front, or because one likes the look. For example, my kitchen drawers are made out of cheap plywood, and have unattractive metal slides requiring that the drawer be made significantly smaller than the opening. Their false fronts cover all that up. But none of that is relevant in the case of Paul’s drinks cabinet. So I wonder why he chose the false front. Thanks!
