how about the DC pick up through the back of the box???

Still using it, just have to run a pipe up to the bottom of the baffle plate.  Ran out of time for this evenings work.

Call me lazy 'er energy conscientious, I'd leave it white...paint on the Formica will eventually chip. Black will absorb your light too.

I should have been more precise on what I wanted to change from white to black.  The edge that faces out and comes flush with the door.  That currently is white Formica.  I am thinking maybe remove that edge and go with some black Formica or I have leftover that matches the cabinet top above.

 

The top I suspect will get modified a few times over time as I expand how much this gets used.

Won't be seen unless you're using the router...rest of the time it will be closed. My $.02

Normally I would agree, and all the other drawers are finished with some golden oak stain and few coats of poly.  BUT, once I put a tool into it worked out all the kinks and such I am thinking needs a step up in the game.  :ChinScratch:  May even put a tool nameplate on it.  Like I did this "Snap On" toolbox that I made to fit on these shelves.

As is still looks fine to me, but if you feel strongly on the change, then my vote would be to match the cabinet top...but hey, I have no artistic vision and tend to be a minimalist conformist.

So cool.  Thanks for that idea.  Sorry, no checks.  No Western Union, either.  LOL

 

One other thing to consider is to have a spring lock or something to block the drawer from retreating while in use.

forgot to add the spring lock idea

Gotcha.  Manual lock on each side, because if one is good two should be better

They have not been in any recent pictures.  Have them hanging on a hook from when I painted them yellow.  No need thus far to install them.  In fact the entire thing is now in pieces waiting on poly to dry.

Took a page from Steven Newman and went "old school" as he might say.  Drew out the square and routed the centers out then came back and cut in with the chisels until I got a perfect fit.  Then did the same all over again on the other side.

They have now been painted with some Bronze colored hammered metal finish paint.  Took a note from Larry Buskirk's recent work.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
