Default Re: Half blinds revisited

Hi Philip

I do not disagree with you. Using the router is not something I have done much in the last few years (at least). I am cautious still. While I have freehanded the routing of all pins on at least one complete drawer, the fence was added here as a security measure. Frankly it makes sense to rout to the line as well.

On the other hand, it takes 2 or 3 chisel strokes to remove the end waste, and I am more confident in controlling the accuracy of this with handskill. Perhaps I will take a few more risks as I gain experience when completing the remaining drawers. The point I want to make is that I agree with you, and others should try and follow your lead. My efforts posted are simply a chronical of my learning experience.

Regards from Perth
