Moving on. After picking up a piece of 3/4" plywood at the box store.

I moved it into the garage, sliced off a section from the side, and cut that up into pieces that I needed to continue the construction of the frame that I need to support the next set of drawers.

Using the Kreg jig, with glue and screws, I've now gotten the next section of the frame assembled.

Here we have it sitting in place. It's not fastened yet, but that should not take long to fasten it into place.

By the way, all of the drawers under this side of the counter top, will give us roughly about 28 cu ft of storage space.

Not too shabby!

Took the day off today. Hopefully, tomorrow will be a little bit more productive than today was.

I wanted to check out a set of strip led's, to light up the counters for cooking and preparing food, etc.

Here's what I found on Amazon.

These have a string of 42 lights end to end, but they are a double set, so they have a total of 84 per strip.

Those look like the ones I have under the cupboards in my house to light up the counters. They work very well.


Here is a larger picture, and every set of 3, (6 lights total), the strip can be cut. Included are a bunch of extra ends that can be soldered to the cut strip if needed.

Both ends come with a connection, so they can be plugged together if you want more than a single string in length.

As of now, those are the ones that I am planning on using. They provide a lot of light, and look like they should be versatile.

We'll see how they look as the build progresses.

Got my next set of drawer sides, fronts, and backs cut to size.

I need to cu the grooves, dado's, etc before assembling them.

Another computer emergency today for a customer. Took care of my day for working on the MOHO.

UGH!

Hey there! Sorry for causing a couple of days of "withdrawal" symptoms for a few of you.

Anyhow, I had a little time to continue working on the next set of drawers.

I cut the grooves for the drawer bottoms, and then started cutting the grooves for the slides in some of the sides. I have 1/2 of those cut, so I can finish the other 2 sets tomorrow.

Forecast is for rain, so I'll not be able to work on other stuff outside, so I should be able to get some work done inside the coach.

Wahoo!

Anyone remember this?

Yes, that's the "ear" that I rebuilt on our Magic Bullet blender, after it had broken off.

If you remember, I first tried gluing the original back on, and that only held up for about a week or two.

Then I created a completely new "ear" from the UV light glue.

It is still holding up just fine. It's been about a month or so. It's still looking good at this point.

I'll wait a little while and see how it goes, that is assuming I remember to post about it. Lol.

Finally got all my drawer parts cut and machined and are ready to be assembled.

All my grooves and dado's are cut, just waiting for glue, clamps, and plywood. Wahoo!
