    As far as I can see, there are NO links to all the stuff George states should be at the bottom of the page (titles of upcoming weeks, hardware printout, etc.). Can you help?

      Hello. Have a look at this web page https://www.wwgoa.com/live-courses/cordless-tool-station/ Immediately under the first picture is a banner that says Download All Instructions and Plans. When you click on that the download automatically begins. As you scroll down within the page linked above you’ll see all five weeks of content.

    This looks like a very interesting project. One thing that I have found with cut diagrams is that it can be hard to figure out where to make the first and, sometimes, subsequent cuts. This one does not cause that problem, as it is clear (to me) that the first cut should be the crosscut between parts 1 and 2, with the next logical one being to trim the larger piece to 60″. That said, I would really appreciate having recommended ‘cut timing’ added to these whenever possible. Thanks!

    I don’t see a cut list or any information on your pages for the solid materials to be used. Example; 2 drawer fronts: 3/4 x 5-3/8 x 22. etc. How much pine should I buy? Did you buy dimensional lumber and then glue it up for panels or did you buy panels already at 3/4 ” thick by ??” wide? In a set length? for the face frames you mention a strip meassurement of 1″ by ?? ? How much pine needed forthe pine face frame? Inches or board foot?
    Thank you

    I can appreciate how my method of assembly or cutting specifics might ultimately effect the overall finished product dimensions, but what about the cabinet shop that builds for a specific installation. You might want to comment on where that difference comes into play. Why can we not build to a specific plan with dimensions included?

    George, on page 5 the picture shows a double wall on each side next to the 2 outside hangers plus to small vertical pieces behind the 2 outside hangers. What are these for and are they on the cut list? Thanks for your help. Chuck
