« Part 2: What Comes from Old Hoosiers? Part 3 of Wall Hung Tool Cabinet series Part 4: Some Carcase Joinery »

Used the #8 to get one good edge, ‘cause the boards needed help:

Measured set (max) width to repeat on each board, 10 7/8”, tranferred it to the panel panel gauge, and marked the other edges of each board…

Fasten the stuff to the bench and joint it for staight and width to the scored line.

#5 jack goes to town.

NOW we’re good to move forward… From jointing to joinery!

I am late in seeing this series. Great work Smitty. I am really looking forward to seeing this come together. Where did you get your panel gauge?

Tony, that gauge is courtesy of Mr.Leech, an 87 1/2 model Stanley. It needs a home in the new cabinet, actually.

Ditto, Shane. Totally agreed!

Smitty, nice detail. I noticed some cool looking hold fasts below “Fasten the stuff to the bench and joint it for staight and width to the scored line.” Are they vintage?

Thanks, Don. Stanley #203 clamps… They’re awesome. I admit to learning about them from The Schwarz in his blue Workbenches book. He has moved on, but I’ll never part with mine.

EDIT: Adding another pic that won’t get cropped (?)
