After my recent visit to Norfolk and Dodge

I have made some progress on these 2 roller cabs :lol:

Sorry ( Its a PITA ) that the photo sequence comes up backwards :?

Will need to have a re think on the caster I was going to use as I don't think they will be up to the job weight wise

MORE PROGRESS :mrgreen:

Draw fronts now have handles fitted

I made a small jig to make sure they were all in the same place / spacing , and it worked fine :lol:

Draw fronts now fitted on one roller cab

I needed a 3mm spacer to make sure the draw fronts fitted correctly , do you think I could find anything 3mm :roll:

Then I had a :idea: :idea: moment , My planer blades are 3mm thick so used my spare set
Sat the blade on top of the lower draw front , then the next draw front on that , then used 2 bessy clamps to hold it in place and drilled 6 fixing holes on the inside of the draw

One now looks like this :lol:

Can anyone spot the mistake :oops: :oops: I think it adds caricature :mrgreen:

You've got the back of the top drawer front showing a frenchman and there's another further down?

Answer one - A man in a striped shirt wearing a beret with a string of onions round his neck

Answer two - an inserted plug in the face veneer of a sheet of plywood to replace a blemish or knot.
