Playing Dominoes

Still working on the lounge cupboard, though I’ve been slowed down a bit by trying to drill though my finger. No serous damage done but cleaning all the mess off the woodwork has taken some doing. All the parts are made now but I was faced with the dilemma of how to fix the side panel to the curved corner section as now it had been reduced from the original it was not possible to use screws without looking a mess.
Blinding flash of the obvious.
Joints on both sides made using the new domino jointer.
Fitted, glued and as solid as a rock.
The shelves are in 18mm birch ply faced with ash forming a 3mm lip to stop bits sliding off.  Also incorporated a pocket to one side to hold the owners manual. The test construction is going well so far and hope to have some pictures tomorrow before it is taken apart again for varnishing and down to T-A for installation.
On the home front Karen has finished the planting bar one row of cabbages with are still a bit on the small side.

For goodness sake don't get an itchy nose when you have the drill in your hand...... It could be VERY painful!
