« Part 26: A Sub (Panel) Plot Thickens... Part 27 of Wall Hung Tool Cabinet series no next part

Wandering about the Shop in a rather aimless fashion these last couple of evenings, wanting to do something but not sure what. So it’s been random cleaning and organizing mostly. And that’s when I raised the tambour door of the Not Wall Hung and remembered wanting to build out that space ‘someday.’

Well, today’s the day.

I’ve got a couple fillisters, a couple T&G planes, and a diamond point stapler in there now, but there’s more that could fit with the addition of a simple shelf. So, let’s get busy marking an approximate location.

Then find a nice piece of vintage pine to joint, embellish and smooth.

Then fashion and install a couple walnut cleats.

Fit the shelf.

Hit it with some Howard’s and load ‘er up, job complete!

More tools inside, looks good too. And it brings the “Completion Index” closer to 1.00 for this Not Wall Hung. Now to find some other interesting / long neglected task to work on.

Yup, pretty damn good. Good job with the beader too.

Yeah buddy. Those long awaited jobs feel the best when done in my opinion.

And with it just being cleats screwed to the side walls, the space can be adjusted / reworked at anytime based on need. Thanks guys.

T’ain’t nuttin’ but a shelf board, of course, but I’m happy. And was fun posting something to LJs with a lot of pics, because it’s been awhile. :-)

I like the cool detail added to the shelf with the 66 beader. I just picked up a set of standard blades for mine. Looks like fun.

Looks great Smitty. It must be nice and calm in your shop working with hand tools. Thank you for reminding me of the proper name ‘tambour’ for the door style. I was trying to remember it when I read a recent project post of a breadbox with one and could only think of the words ‘roll top’. My English is getting worse every year and my Norwegian isn’t any better either.

Hey Mike, thanks! Yes, it’s pretty laid back and quiet in the shop when I work, except for the radio and an occasional RAS spin up. Glad I could help w/ the english lesson too! :-)

It was a fun little project, just the right amount of work vs. play, and done from start to finish in just over an hour.

Sounds like a great little project. I need to find time for a few more of those in my shop as the weather warms.
