It won't be boxed in? I was so tired of dusting my equipment and  I finally bought a small entertainment center (enclosed) from the good will till I can figure out my entertainment center on the wall..

 

I'm looking for a Pioneer D-1S and will to trade some clamps for one or routers....

Ok, I'm back on the audio rack after installing the Shelix cutterhead in my jointer over the weekend.  Today I cleaned up the edges on the three Curly Maple boards, one pass each.  Because I bought the cutterhead with bearings installed and 15 extra knives the cost with shipping was $400 and it took about five weeks to arrive (backordered).  So that's about $67 per pass but wow do the edges look good! :D

 

Here are the chipped edges -

And the edges I just cut today with the new Shelix cutterhead -

I may make a video of the entire build once this is complete, not sure, video production takes a while. ;)

 

Finally got to a point where I could begin joining the boards for the shelves and started with the Hard Rock Maple.  I'll save the much more expensive Curly Maple for the last in case I learn something new when I join these boards.  

 

Because these are heavy and the edges so crisp they're sharp I decided to do one joint at a time rather than attempt gluing all three boards at once.  That turned out to be a good move because doing just one joint is about all the open time I have for TB I, probably could have switched to TB III to get more open time but didn't want to do that.

 

I used biscuits for making certain everything stays aligned, not for strength, and it worked well for this application.
