First started by building up and cutting to size the walnut boards to make the booth end caps. This was somewhat of a simple process, but the many steps and procedures we were going to use with the CNC machine meant we needed to pay extra attention to what we were doing. We use biscuits for all these panels and just to make sure I didn't put a biscuit where the CNC was going to cut out the shape we used. A few stories stick to mark out where each biscuit was going to go with so many operations to these booths. It was imperative that Matt and I developed a plan for each step.
It naturally worked out as we progressed, and each of us knew what the other person was going to do and what needed to be done. This made the process pretty much streamlined and the results very consistent with the end cap panels glued up and ready to go. We passed them over, the joined table saw and the MFT table to make sure the bottom corner was square and the unit was going to fit in our drum sander. We use the drum sander to get an even thickness. Next, we can head over to the shop bot PRS alpha CNC machine and we place a sacrificial piece of MDF on our spoil board and use the CNC to cut out a jig to locate the end caps.
We have four positions on the jig, but for some reason, we lost most of the footage in this step and only capture our test run with the first two end caps. Basically, this jig allows us to locate the end caps and then using our CAD file. We can cut out the end cap geometry and also use it to cut out the rabbits for the plywood panels. The CAD cam took a bit of time, but taking a step back and looking at how much time the CNC saved us on this step alone was absolutely worth it. I bet it would have taken us four to five times as long to do it manually plus the results would not have been consistent.
Each part came out the same and the results were fantastic. Next, we could start working on the plywood panels that are going to connect the end caps and actually make them a booth. We are using a paw Claire veneer with the plywood core for this material to ensure these boots are made. With my reputation in mind, we use a combination of our Makita track saw and our saw stop table saw to make these cuts. Thank goodness, all the bevel cuts were gonna be on the ripping side of the material.
