  1. "you need almost no wood tools". Uses sanders, saws, professional equipment of all kinds, and a blowtorch. Thank goodness it was so simple, easy, and available to everyone. I wonder how a complex project looks like…

  2. I'll call out all the TOOL WHINERS here at once:

    Yes, he uses some nice tools to build this. But an experienced woodworker also knows when and how he can get buy with MINIMAL TOOLS or even CHANGING THE BUILD SLIGHTLY to similar results. And both of those are possible here also.

    First off, if you don't already own at least a variable speed DRILL and a CIRCULAR SAW, you probably shouldn't be watching DIY videos, if not at least happy to buy these two most used power hand tools any DIYer or just homeowner should own, and BOTH together can be bought for $50 and last a lifetime of light use in a home setting (e.g. Harbor Freight…)

    To cut the plywood, all you'd need then is a DIY straightedge for the saw, like this one or any of the myriad others on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9an9cAFHdXA&t=34s

    One of those properly used puts you a millimetre in accuracy away from all the expensive alternatives like panel saws, or track saws.

    A couple spring clamps are always useful, and will hold the straightedge: https://www.harborfreight.com/search?q=spring%20clamp

    Then a miter box and hacksaw can cut the aluminum accurately. $20 for both and both are also highly useful tools to have around the house, or for DIY projects.

    To paint bare aluminum, you should use an ETCHING PRIMER for aluminum, $6 from Amazon Prime.

    I personally think you could just glue the aluminum to the wood without brazing after painting the exposed side (leaving the insides that don't show unpainted), and then just add some epoxy to fill in the mitered corners and some touch up paint there.

    But just about as nice a result can be had with just some mitered wood pieces cut roughly about 1" x .5" with mitered corners, and glued to the door panels to show the 1/2" width, and having a depth of 1". Setting the back of these flush with the panel back would let the fronts extend out about 1/4" forward of the photos, giving a nice trimmed look. If the cuts aren't perfect or you get any wood tear out, just pick up some wood filler to touch them up after assembly and then sand and paint.

    Also, the hinges can be simpler without a need to drill with a forstner bit for a 32mm hinge hole, such as these: https://www.amazon.com/Lancher-Hinge-installation-Cupboard-Cabinet/dp/B01IY8CTLM/ref=sr_1_4?dchild=1&keywords=concealed+hinge&qid=1591126172&s=hi&sr=1-4

    At $14 for 4, that's $7 a door, and no forstner bit needed for a hole like traditional euro style hinges as used in the video above (which buy the way, you can buy the 32mm bit for as low as $8, and drill with a hand drill: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=no0yYU2LmbY&t=10s if you really do want to go that route)

    You'd probably get similar results with a spray gloss glaze for $5 like this one to avoid the effort of applying the epoxy resin:

    https://www.lowes.com/pd/Krylon-Triple-Thick-Crystal-Clear-High-gloss-Crystal-Clear-Glaze-Spray-Paint-Actual-Net-Contents-11-oz/1000399289?cm_mmc=shp-cprdpntgooglelia-219-spraypaint-1000399289-_-0&store_code=740&placeholder=null&gclid=CjwKCAjw8df2BRA3EiwAvfZWaJV9ZF7mlnuJnMW8OVUelDxKF-8Gy9rw8Ht6u70fQuyvx2I2CCV1HBoCnTEQAvD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds

    Lastly, for these wanting to have the doors a tighter fit all around, you can size them for a close fit and then do one of these:
    a. scale up the photo a few % to fill the larger space before printing the photos
    b. use a matte as in photo frames
    c. miter cut some shoe moulding to fit and glue inside the outer framing: https://www.homedepot.com/p/FINISHED-ELEGANCE-WM129-7-16-in-x-11-16-in-MDF-Shoe-Moulding-10001626/202738251

    DIY is a SKILL, and not every video is going to show you every option you have for accomplishing it, or knowing how you can substitute other TOOLS, MATERIALS or RESULTS. That's gained by EXPERIENCE. So don't whine when you see expensive tools used, instead, immediately start thinking about, or researching how you could accomplish the same or similar results with more common tools, or the tools you already own, and then consider whether buying any new tools to fill the gap could open up other projects with those same tools to make buying them make even more sense.

    As Ricky Gervais said:

    "You should make something. You should bring something into the world that wasn't in the world before. It doesn't matter what it is. It doesn't matter if it's a table or a film or gardening — everyone should create. You should do something, then sit back and say, 'I did that.'"

  3. Hello, what a totally unique project! Can you share where we can find (website?) where to download the album covers for printing. Thanking in advance. Cheers!

  4. Im so confused why you wouldnt just add the sticker to pre purchased door from Ikea and just add some thin metal trim if you really want. Its much easier to solder brass or steel. Plus the pre made doors already come with all the holes, hinges, hardware etc. Just a matter of having your photo attached once it is turned into a vinyl.

    Plus aluminum is basically impossible to paint properly, just leave it silver if using aluminum.

  5. Silly question, but would you be able to add the picture to the doors ikea already have made for this storage unit? They way you did it to the custom ones… thanks!

  6. Thank you for the information about Pure Bond project panels. Can't wait to try them for several projects I have in mind that have been stalled. Also got the inspiration of trying to do doors in plexiglass as I want transparent doors. Loved the album covers though.

  7. Just have a question couldn't you get a frame that fits the spot just the same and add the hinges to the frame so that you can interchange the art in and out ?

  8. Great videos, man! I just subbed yesterday and I can already tell you're going to be a huge help. I do have somewhat of a random question- I just built a very basic desk for my office. I am located in an extremely austere location with very limited supplies and means of obtaining new supplies. However, I do have spray paint and sandpaper. Is spray paint strong enough to protect the raw/sanded wood from getting scratched due to daily use? Alternatively, if anyone has any ideas of things that can be shipped through air mail, I am also open to ordering online.
