I would like to add a notes VAC SYS:
- I was surprised by its effectiveness. Vacuum is so great that over 18 mm MDF board can still feel the effects on others, laid on top of her,
- shivering, fixed piece is minimal.
- The basic module suction cup mounting is excellent,
- The small suction cup mounting reduces the efficiency, we see it as a direct proportion.
- At 200 x 60mm I registered a slight sliding, fixed object,
- Brilliant handling skills, finally when routing rows of holes I do not have to rotate the board, the same applies when using Lamello cutter. This fact significantly speeds up work on the stage for medium-sized corpora cabinets,
- Operations such as sawing and working with a chisel handles excellently,
- Height allows cooperation with clamps Festool system,
- Control of foot-operated switch is appropriate to fix the floor,
- Do not drop, fixed piece, shortly after turning off the pump,
- The location of the switch on the side systajneru given the usual storage systajnerov little awkward,
My overall impression surpassed expectations with whom I went to his purchase.

How is it working so far? Too high? Too low? Just right?

This is just spectacular in so many ways!   [thumbs up]

How are you treating the  "fuzzy" ends of the MDF so they will accept paint?

Thanks for sharing!

Yes Tim. The viability of this tool  prevents me purchase smaller dominoes. Moreover Lamello I bought twelve years back in sale for a really ridiculous price of about $ 10.

This project is in the color of vanilla, is already manufactured exclusively in my small workshop. And this is the same painting parts and melamine components. To achieve the perfect edge I used cutting with the addition of 1.5 mm and then routing edges. Technoviking help me in painting and polishing and it was a pleasure to observe his work. I devoted the rest and assembly. Hooks for hanging is domestic choice.

Awesome work!!! and pictures too! [thumbs up]

I hope some day I can achieve your quality of craftsmanship.  Im currently trying to figure out how to organise the mess and lay out in my garage so I can . I hope you don't mind but I'm going to borrow your idea of how your store your guide rails neatly in one spot. Seems like sweet organized space saver to me.  [not worthy]

Is that 'W' shaped item a bookshelf, or just decorative? Also, how did you fasten it to the wall?

alkaline, how do you finish the edges?  That shelf looks really awesome and I want to give painting MDF a go, but I'm still a bit confused on how to treat the edges.

Thanks!

As everybody said, the finish is just great!!
Also the clients enviroment looks high end, I see the work is too [eek]

There are several products that seal the edges on mdf.
They work really well, and give it the same finish as the top.
Look and ask at a paint specialist, sure they have it.

FANTASTIC WORK ALKALINE!

I have a question...is there a clear coat on the wood or is it just glossy paint, then sanded?  I love that glossy look.

Mr. Wow, in our work we do not make anything just for show. Shelf can hold a load of books weighing 15 kg. Is fixed two invisible brackets that are on the market under the name REX.

Eric, I'm flattered. Thank you. The way I started this work is in part described on the previous pages of this thread.
I use material designed for the automotive industry, namely polyester filler and primer filler from ROBERLO and high gloss two-component polyurethane paint for metal.
L5403493 the picture you can be seen locally sealed with edges, resulting from inaccurate work sawing and gluing the resulting shaped shelves (in this I still have room for improvement).
By hand or with DTS 400 (with using 350 to 400 abrasive) make it a perfect edges.
Followed by injection of 3 layers of filler. He is finalized abrasive 800.
Next step is sprayed color and layer 4 in edge and 2-3  on the surface. After curing ( I use two heaters with a temperature of about 50 degrees Celsius) followed by grinding under water with detergents for sediment alleviate. Using 1500, 3000 and 6000 - 3M abrasives.
After sanding, followed polish MPA 6000 or 8000 with orange and dark gray plastic foam using the Rotex 150. Last action is polishing sheepskin using SHINEX RAP 150 and 11000 MPA.
I hope to understand me.

Thank you. Someone recommended edges sealed with tape of the some material. I do not do it. I believe that the MDF for indoor use is sufficiently dimensionally stable. But in the context of further improving the quality I also does not prevent this practice. It also I considers the use of two-component epoxy adhesives is maybe progress.

Thank you. Yes it is a glossy car paint additionally polished. For the future I considering the use of conventional paint with several layers of transparent paint, which will contain trace amounts of black pigment for better clarity.
