Lockdown S1 E13... 1. Moved the Wheezycab down to a lower working platform for easier access to next steps. It’s heavy AF... 2.  Final trimming on drawer fronts and doors. Used a router bit

Lockdown S1 E25 (April 18th) Sh*t’s gettin’ real... Today was one of those insanely satisfying days.  I’ve been working on all the discrete parts and (seemingly) isolated tasks for a long-a$

I’ve spent the last week or so looking at tons of images from woodworkers around the world, and I’ve settled on an overall design (give or take). As a few of you know, I’m not much into drawing plans, instead opting for an overall mental picture and then just kind of building it as I go.  

One thing I did take into account ahead of time is built-in humidification and airflow. After lots of research on the web, and then trading a few emails with Bob from Aristocrat Humidors, I ordered a “Set and Forget Twin Humidifier” from their site.  Bob is awesome.  He answered all my questions, including his valuable experience building humidors over the years, and my order arrived within the week.  Solid guy, and I wish him the best in his semi-retirement.

Building my own humidor is on my bucket list. Congrats my friend. You are very talented. I love woodworking but the most precision (cant use wood putty) work I've done is picture frames. I guess that's a step in the right direction.

That looks like a beautiful idea.  I really appreciate your ability to envision something unique and eye pleasing and actually put it together; I have no such artistic talent.  Looking forward to the finished work.  Well done

Today is focused on the Wheezycab base...

First, a clean-up of the edges from the glue-up last night, then cutting to length.

The next step took some time, as the joint for the base needs to be perfect.  So I mapped everything out on craft paper, then transferred the lines to the stock.  Then started the cuts of the profile and the joint.

Prepping and cutting the joints.  One leg I was able to use a table saw, but the other one I had to cut by hand and drill press.

It’s googie and I love it. 

@Wailbait - so I had no idea what “Googie” was until you referenced it.  Unbeknownst to me, I love it too!  I live in Seattle, where we still have a few Googie examples left, and yeah, I’ve always been drawn to this.  Reminds me of when I was a kid, and all the “Atomic Age” stuff like the Space Needle, Seattle Center, etc.  Now I’m really happy with the Wheezycab. Thanks for sharing some knowledge!  ??
