    Almost done: wall cabinet

    I'll give ya a little background.

    RE: One half of linen press

    Thanks for the comments, guys. I'm starting to think differently about the frame-panel sides now. Maybe they were the best choice.

    RE: Sliding dovetail

    Yep, I've got a router table. I am aware that drawer sides and backs are typically 1/2", but I don't have a planer. I'm using 3/4" red elm. So I figured a 3/8" bit would be right. The drawer fronts...

    RE: How much to charge

    Sorry for not being more detailed. Yes, I meant a slab-like base, not pedestal. So, $10 sq.ft. plus materials is appropriate?

    As far as the pavers shifting, I'm going to build a frame with...
