I see you've bodged the Kapex onto a DeWalt stand, how did you do it? I turned and tapped up some feet extensions that let me bolt the Kapex to the quick release plates, then had to get on the file to increase the height reach of the outboard supports.

Works okay but the saw is a little bit too far back for easy use with the outriggers and thin stock.

I found I was able to match holes on the Kapex with ones on the QR plates, can't remember exactly how :?

I haven't solved the narrow stock issue, so anything narrow drops off the back of the supports which is v annoying. I need to file the slots as you suggest.

This weekend and this evening has been spraying time;

Image

As usual I'm spraying it all flat prior to assembly. I'm using Morrells WB lacquer, 20% sheen. I've actually done the first coat in some 10% I had left over, with 20% going on as the top coat - the 10 is just a bit too flat for me. Interestingly the 10% is just over 2 years old, absolutely nothing wrong with it - I was worried it might have gone off but its fine. It sprays nicely, no thinning or pissing about, and dries pretty quick too. I've been finding that with some heat on in the room its dry enough to do the second side within the hour.

Image

Everything has had one coat and been denibbed, just need a second coat on it all, which will happen one evening this week.

That's it for now.

Well I came into possession of a box of disposable suits, so I may as well use them. The ear defenders are essential - I don't know about other HVLP's but the Apollo is deafening.

Looking great Ed. Should be a posh utility room!

Out of interest, which turbine sprayer did you go for? This one?

The turbine route is an alternative I had been thinking about as opposed to the traditional compressor gun.

Having sprayed everything flat, I moved onto assembly on Saturday

Image

I'm using the Spax carcase screws, which are excellent - no pilot hole and not the slightest sign of any splitting or bulging.

Image

These cases are pretty heavy once assembled, each one having a sheet and a half of 19mm in it

Image

Once the cases were all glued and screwed, I moved into the face frames. These had been all dominoed on the middle size slot, so I could then glue and clamp them over the finished cases allowing me a little bit of adjustment to tweak the face frame so the alignment with the shelf edge was spot on.

Image

Once the face frames had been glued up I cut the domino slots on the edges of the shelves and the rear of the frame for when I fit them later.

Image

I finished off today with spraying the face frames, 2 coats again with a denib in between. I'll assemble them onto the carcases this week.

That's all for now.

Ed

I must try that spraying-stuff-flat thing. It sounds a lot less hassle than planning it flat. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Amazing what you can cover with a good thick coat of paint :lol:


Perhaps I should have said prior to assembly, rather than flat

Well I'm finished, kinda...

Image

I've still got the plinth and cornice to do, but they can wait for a bit. As you can see, Claire has already started filling them, which to be honest is the whole point of these shelves as they create space to unlock the next phase of kitchen improvement.

Image

Finishing these off has stalled slightly as the air control knob sheared off my spraygun on Saturday morning, meaning I had to revert to my old favourite foam rollers to paint the back panels. It also means the end panel where the depth steps back is not lacquered and only a temporary fit and the plinth and cornice will have to wait until the gun is sorted.

Image

That's it for now, more to follow on the next few phases in due course.

Thanks for looking, Ed

They are really really nice!

You should organise the provender on each shelf by colour.

They are just my sort of thing.

Superb job

What is the plan for the cornice? It looks like it doesn't need one or something very simple.

I was thinking the top looked fine, and maybe some 'fake' feet to hide the adjustable legs ?

I would either not bother with a cornice or have a simple square profile. Other options would be to paint the plinth and cornice the same as the back panels .

Perhaps just a shadow board set back about 2" so as not to detract from the front frame but still fill the gap.

Did that on my bedroom wardrobes as they were only a couple of inches away from the ceiling, I think it works well :)

Also saves painting that awkward bit of ceiling in a few years time. :lol:

I'll have to do something, as there is a bracket back to the wall on the top of each case; although the pictures don't show it, it can be seen especially on the shallow one.

What about a vertical fillet, painted white and set back slightly from the line of the face frame?

It's interesting, although you can see the shadow of the face frames, at first glance I thought it was thick panels.

I think a Doug cornice and plinth would finish it nicely.

I'll say it again, a really superb job there Ed.
