Various ongoing built-in construction questions.


Sounds like I will have to use a 1/3 of a $45 sheet of 3/4 ply to make 4 and 8' jigs just to start......

Any really straight board will do----no need to spend big bucks --look through the pine 1x6 or 1x4 and see if you can find a perfectly straight one---

The wood you choose for your face frames could be put to work while you make the boxes--then used for the face frames--if you use clamps with rubber covers when you clamp the 'jigs' the wood should be fine for the face frames---

Ive seen that pine stock before and I have no idea how I'd find a piece that was 8ft perfectly straight! I'm not even sure how to test that since the home depot floor is most likely not flat. Guess I'm just over analyzing everything. I'm a planner.

Yep---sound like it!---

I use my eyes---just site down the edge of the board---like choosing a pool cue at a tavern---
