    Sorry I meant tails on the front.

    Anyway, I went back and looked at the pics again and I think I see what you're doing is a 1/2 blind on the sides instead of the front.

    But my point still...

    You said the tails are on the sides, which like Mike said, is reversed from normal drawer construction.

    That said, I don't see the point in what you're doing.

    That said, this time of year I would butt them tight. In the winter I would leave a 1/16" gap.

    Pecan can be a very attractive wood. Be aware it one of the harder species, at least or maybe even harder than hickory.

    I'm very much a hand tool guy with dovetails, but for mass production, I really like using a jig.

    I use Steve Latta's method.

    Mine is right rear aspect of extension table.

    Since I've added another tablesaw, I'm going under floor with it.

    Which is to say, that is probably the best location.

    Dan,

    I too elected to go with the Klauzs design bench. Referred heavily to Landis' book plus a couple article with a few more drawings. (I can't remember where I got them but would be happy to...

    That said, On a LA jack with an adjustable mouth the only issue will be the width and fitment to the frog adjuster.

    Jon,

    I will be redoing my assembly table soon. I've considered MFT vs T tracks and I've decided to go with T tracks along with holes that will accept Festool quick clamps.

    I wouldn't worry to much about movement as the batten is only a couple inches wide.

    I've used a side rabbet plane on dados but not sliding dt slots. But with mixed results, probably due to my own...

    I love this router, but the DC needs to be re-engineered IMHO. For one, it is a process to remove and attach.

    Second, performance overall is poor. Dados and grooves ok, but routing an edge...

    Keeping a fan running at night will help.

    Other than that, the more infrequently you use your machines, the more issues you will have with rust.

    IOW - more woodworking!!

    The reason they fail is the manufacturer is using the wrong screw. 5mm Euro screws don't work in MDF.

    My approach is saw a bit off the scribe line and use a guide block with a chisel to create a crisp, 90 wall. This works very well especially critical with deeper dadoes.

    I'm sorry but neither of those saws will take you very far in your woodworking endeavor. Their issues are pretty major: accuracy, fence quality, power.

    Most suppliers have someone knowledgeable so when you order your hinges you can ask.

    Agree re: staining ply panel not necessary.

    The last cherry project I did I used oil and it came out very nice.

    Some people will use a dye on cherry to darken it a bit and even out the color.
