Here is my first real Shaper project!
This was a request from my brother, who needed something to better store his current selection of vinyl records alongside his player.
I've made this using the wood I had available, which was not much! a big piece of exotic wood (don't ask me which one!), and a small scrap piece of tainted black MDF.
This is the result, and I'm quite happy with it!
The Shaper Origin and Worstation are just amazing...
321mm x 249mm / 26mm thick hard wood for the main deck
2off 357mm x 80mm / 26mm thick hard wood for the sides
1off 321mm x 80mm / 26mm thick hard wood for the top part
350mm x 90mm / 10mm Thick black MDF
8mm diameter upcut bit
Dimensions are just indicative, I've put mine, which were basically dictated by the dimensions of the wood I had. The only two dimensions which are "critical" are the available height in the frame: I have 315mm between the bottom of the grooves and the top part bottom face and it works great (I actually had to cut a 5mm deep pocket on the bottom face of the top part, as I made mistakes with my first measures! but it turned out nice at the end of the day...).
The other is the depth of the bottom panel: 235mm is what I have to support the vinyls, and it works great. But this one is less important and can be adjusted to your liking.
I used the built-in box joint plugin for the mortises and tenons of the frame, following SO's tutorial. Next time I'll cut a little bit deeper my mortises, to save some time and material at the sanding phase!
I used Osmo oil for the finishing.
