Now, just in case you like your plastic bag a little tighter on the plate - it is possible to vacuum seal the plate inside the bag.

When done, cut the bag off, and throw it away.

Aw, come on - there's some humor in that. Lol....

That's a really pretty plate.

Carry a bag of clean sand to scrub your dishes (outside!), wipe with a damp cloth, and yer done. Very little water used. Learned this from my chuckwagon cook grandfather.

You could use it on the plastic over your china, too, so you don't have to toss the plastic so often...

Ok, I'll go back into my lurk mode...

Thanks.

I've heard of that technique but never tried it.

Pulled out my "big" router today with the dovetail bit in it. I also set up my higher fence, so I could cut some dovetails and needed the high fence to keep the pieces of plywood properly vertical.

I finished cutting the dovetails in the sides to match the drawer fronts, and then started cutting the dovetails for the slides in the drawer sides.

I indexed everything from the top of the drawer side, so the drawers would all be the same distance from the top of the drawer.

These are the 8" high drawers.

I also cut the 5" high ones.

The slides will be 1/3 of the overall height of the side. 1/3rd at the top, 1/3rd for the slide, and 1/3rd for the bottom of the side.

I figured that would give me maximum strength for the slides.

I still have to finish the 13" drawer sides for the bottom 2 drawers.

As soon as I cut the drawer bottoms for these 4 drawers, they are ready to be glued together. Yay!

Another view of one of the sides. It's kind of "funny" what you might find when cutting into the center of plywood.

Here are a couple of "voids" in the center of the plywood.

Don't know if that's an oops or cost savings. Lol.

Maybe I missed it, but, what keeps the drawers from sliding open while underway ?
