Excellent work Jon.

What do you think of the Dynapro runners? I've just ordered some of the Dynamoov, which I believe are the same as the Dynapro but without the rear adjustment facility. And how much did you pay for them?

Cheers

I like the dynapros been using them for a few years now . I think they were about £18 ish plus vat for the runners and clips. The 60kilo ones for the big drawers were quite expensive iirc

Cheers

Just come late to this Jon after hols. Is there any problem with the veneer tape telegraphing through onto adjacent panels doing them in a stack in the vac bag?

I've never noticed any problems Brian. The panels that go together in the bag have always been the balance sapele veneers. I imagine the veneer tape is too thin to make it a problem.

Time for a bit of an update on this.

Started off using the router and homemade trammel to cut arcs so templates can be made to make the curved rails for the island unit



Using the bobbin sander in one of the spindle moulders to help shape parts for the jig



This jig is for the inside face which is machined first. The rails are initially made slightly long so that they can be screwed to the jig



Because of the curve you are machining against the grain for half the cut which can result in some torn grain. To counteract this on the wadkin spindle you can change the rotation of the block easily and by turning the block over you can machine both parts with the grain and avoid tearout. It only takes a few seconds to change the block over.



rail loaded onto the jig



You can see from this video how the machining is done with the block turned over and the rotation reversed



After the rails are made they need cutting to length at the right angle. A full size rod is drawn up on some mdf to guage lengths and angles



A simple jig is made to put on the sliding table to make the cut at the right angle



The other end is a slightly different angle so some more stops are placed on the saw



Testing for fit



The mitre on the rail for the beaded frame is done by hand with the router



To domino the curved rails into the sides a piece of packing is added to the domino to allow you the present the tool at the right angle




Dry run to see if they fit



Frames are glued and cleaned up by hand with a bevel up smoother



Some detail is put on the legs with a V cutter in the router table



The legs are also stop chamfered done by hand to marks as i couldnt be bothered making a jig or setting up stops on the spindle



The frames are dominoed onto the legs bit of heath robinson clamping to allow dominoing of the curved frames



Got the frames and legs together so that the carcases can be sized up





Thanks for looking

Cheers

Sorry, I may have missed this. Were the rails bent or machined out of larger sections?

Very nice Jon, I'm surprised you haven't got a pair those spindles permanently set up in opposite directions.
Anyway where was the power feed?

I reckon if every job was a curved one I'd be broke they always seem to take longer thn you think

Your right I didn't mention it. The rails are machined out of the solid

Too tight a curve for the power feed on this one Brian :D It has been discussed setting up both spindles but only really suitable for a bigger run of components plus I haven't got the tooling

Cheers

Thanks for the comments its good to know people are interested and following this.

Today i have been sorting out the inner carcases again in walnut on birch ply. The ends are rounded and the two panels are joined together with dominoes



The frames are built around the carcase when its finally assembled the middle leg will be glued up . it would be impossible to assemble and get the dominos in other wise



Underneath it is pocket screwed to the carcase i used up some ripple ash veneer here as a balancer as it had stained on the edges a bit



Got everything pretty much together by the end of the day



on this side there is bead and butt paneled recess for sitting at and there will be walnut slats on the bottom



Thanks for looking

cheers

Great work Jon.

I know how time consuming it is to do such a detailed WIP, but it's the thing that is most interesting on the forums, so thank you.

Awe inspiring Jon! I am really enjoying this thread. I like the jig for the table saw for cutting the angles.
