Default Re: Some days I should stay in bed!

Those are beautiful cabinets, Derek. I've made similar mistakes (in contrast to what Mark may have suggested, if I'm the P.....O person - but perhaps he meant Per Swenso ... n). I usually end up filling them with a contrasting wood, and pretending that they were intentional design elements. I guess that wouldn't have worked so well with your military chests, though.

I imagine that you used some very creative language when you noticed that you'd done it a third time. One of my best mistakes was putting the side of a dovetailed cabinet in upside down during the glue up. A friend (who never drops by) happened to come by exactly as I was in the middle of the glue up, and distracted me.

At least that's my excuse, and I'm sticking with it.

It's hard to notice unless you know what you're looking for. Much like your repairs. Nice save!
I don't have as many Festools as Fred. Or Marcou's, or Brese's, or Lie-Nielsen's, or Lee Valley's, or Blue Spruce's, or Harold and Saxon's, or...
