It's looking really nice, @mattbyington  and you're moving along very quickly on it.

re: the holes from the grooves - I think that everyone does it at least once when they start doing drawers. Doing an end grain plug is the classic fix and should work well if you pay attention to the direction of the grain. Those holes are probably pretty consistent, so you should be able to mill up a few thin pieces and plug em after the boxes are glued up.  I'd mill a little oversized and try to sand or plane a little taper so the plug wedges in. It should help w/ getting a tight fit.  I use Old Brown Glue or Elmers White glue for these fixes, because they tend to be less of a problem in terms of the glue staining things.

If you want to the opposite way -  doing a little inlay 'racing stripe' (or even two parallel stripes) is a nice solution. A bit more work and you will want to make sure you have a sharp plane or card scraper to level it off, but it does give an opportunity to add a fun detail.

Concur with @tjbnwi - you can probably get better product and support from ah turf than Rockler. Rocker's hardware tends to be a bit pricey, given that it's a commodity item.

Are you brushing Arm R Seal?

Very nice project - love the detailed pics. The maple is beautiful. I think you have one of the nicest looking shops too - so clean and organized - I am jealous!

Add the plugs before sanding any of the fingers and proceed with sanding the plugs before the glue has dried so any gaps fill with sanding dust.

tjbnwi - mentioned A&H Turf.  GREAT place to order Blum slides (and many other items from).  Their website is a little old school, but don't let that put you off from ordering there.  Their customer service is excellent.  Definitely call them if you are placing an order and the freight seems high.
Even if they can't lower the freight price they will most likely discount the product more - and they already have the best prices on Blum.
I've ordered from them several times - most recently slides and a corner pullout for my kitchen.  Freight seemed high so I called -  Garrett really helped me out!
I'd also recommend ordering the Blum jig for the drawer holes.  I'd done probably 15-20 undermount installs previously.  Decided to treat myself for doing 20 kitchen drawers at once.  What a time saver!

@jarbroen makes sense! I'm sure I"ll end up plugging them.

@tjbnwi thanks man I'll check those places out, appreciate it!

@Mike G yes undercounts so that won't work, I think I'll end up plugging it. And thanks for your kind words!

@mrFinpgh thanks man! I appreciate all the kind words. Yeah I think I'll plug them after the box is glued up, or during the glue up. It should be easy enough to fix. Yep I am brushing ARS with foam brushes. Sanding w/ 500 in between coats and then brown paper bag at the end.

@ScotF haha thanks man! Appreciate it! I vacuum a lot. Having a roomba helps ;)

@Michael K good idea! Will do that!

@Don T thanks man!!

@jarbroen I'll definitely have to check them out! A lot of times I'm also ordering other stuff from Rockler so it makes it easy but if the prices are that much cheaper it's worth a second order.

Thanks so much everyone for all of your comments so far I really appreciate it.

OH and the glass came in last night! for the doors.

I am hoping to wrap up the drawers completely this weekend and then I can start on the final piece - the two front doors!

@JeremyH. It's a SuperMax drum sander. Open on one side. Matt can tell you which one but probably a 16/32 or a 19/38

@Christophl thanks man!

@tallgrass hahahaha thanks dude. Really appreciate it!

Got the drawer fronts finished and pulls installed last weekend ... and actually starting on the doors the last few days!

Doors will be tricky. It's a little complex. But the last big thing to do.

@jobsworth thank you so much man! appreciate it!

Well team...this one is all done. It was a beast. A ton of work. But super happy to be done and the Mrs. really likes it which is all that matters.

Thank you so much to everyone for your advice and help along the way. Here are some finish shots.
