Yes, these cabinets are not of my design or construction. I've been in the business for 32 years, and have never worked with finer cabinetry than that of my friend, David Kuznitz.

From his small shop here in the eastern Sierra, David creates works that he calls cabinetry, but alas, they are works of art. The man is a true genius....and far more of an imaginative craftsman than I will ever be.

That being said, installing the works he creates is no easy task, and the tolerances we work within are to the 64th of an inch. Everything is scribed in. No detail is left undone.

This current project is the second one I am doing for him down there...I completed the other over the past 3 months. That billionaire clients are asking David to do their cabinetry all the way down in the southland, is testament to his abilities.

That he asks me to install his work is a priviledge and an honor....and affirms in me that I am just a tick above nailbender status.

EDIT: Elvis Leg....that is a really cool oven you have there! I have seen these constructed down in Ecuador, for firing bricks. About 10 feet tall and at least that in diameter. I hope you get your bread dialed in...sounds scrumptious!!!! Good on ya!!!

Don't get me wrong, Cragman, though it's easy to do.

I've installed hundreds of high end boxes and have only recently tooled up and stuck it out there on the fab end.

The main cabinet maker that I've installed for over the years wouldn't even deliver. Shop only. He made square sh#t, the rest was your problem.

A sixty forth might be exagerating a bit, but I agree, a tight scribe without trashing someone elses art is a great feeling.

Are you flying visually?

You have to be more specific...
Of course I am flying "visually", that's the only way I would be able to control it. If you are asking if I am piloting via line of sight (LOS) and looking at the craft, then no. I am flying FPV (1st person view) and I am using a live video feed...I sit in a chair looking at a 10inch monitor and my airplanes can fly way beyond line of sight, like in excess of 10 miles and up to 10,000 feet... You may know them by another name, drones... You can also use video goggles but I prefer the screen because I wear glasses... check out www.parkflysac.com for the local FPV scene. With enough research and know-how anyone can build one...

Hey, you asked - didn't say it had to be exciting.

Part 2 coming.

Next morning edit: Apparently we found some spray paint as we finished off the pitcher of margaritas at the end of the day - I had to repaint the box white this morning. It looked like vandals had graffiti-ed the whole thing.

Obviously, the drunken marking was a fail. Shoulda just left it as "TOP".

Squish, technically you are breaking the law, aren't you? I'm not gonna rat on you. ;-)
I'm gonna post a related note on the Aviation thread about 400 mph RC sailplanes.

I recently bought a modern camera, and on occasion will post photo's of past projects. I've been a woodworker for over 50 years.

Here is a photo of 2 bowls-one of cherry, the other of burl maple. The table is mid-18th century style, also of cherry wood.

1/64''???

That's a country mile on a crew I did finish work with last year. 1/64'' would get you fired for poor performance.

Tighten up your tolerances!
