questions about your project??
i see what you are doing with the drawers, and i am curious, arent those big router grooves on the backside going to be exposed even when the drawer is assembled? are the boards thick enough so instead of routing 1 groove, you can actually remove that material right to the side edge of the front board, giving it a more even look? and why do you not attach the false front to the drawer? are you trying to save on material? i have a dewalt model 734 planer. i bought it reconditioned from the dewalt website and it works pretty nice. the only issue i have and it seems common among planers is i get a little dip in the edge of my boards as they come out. it is a good investment if you have a steady supply of free or cheap rough cut lumber you want to use for projects. i learned the hard way that it is better to spend a little more on machines the first time. many people will agree with me on that. dont have to be top of the line, but dont buy the cheapest u can find from a store. shop craigslist and look for factory reconditioned to try to save a few bucks on better machinery
