The case for the saw till has been made and the first coat of finish applied.
The face frame is gluing up and I am going to have some fun with it.
I used loose tenons to put it together, just being lazy I guess. I like to run a small groove down each side for glue to escape.
I will get all “artsy fartsy” with it and make it in the style of the larger cabinet. It looks good so far.
I cut up the sides for the tool cabinet and have them just about ready for joinery. I have burnt through my maple faster than I thought I would so the plane cabinet might be on hold for a while until I can get to the lumber yard. The rope design on the dowel worked perfect for spacing out the saw totes. The drawer front is going to be made with half blinds that sit way back in a deep front so I can carve it along with the face frame. It seems a bit much for tool storage and I have to keep smiling at how spoiled I am going to be to have all this. It is going to help me focus on quality and trying for perfection with every time I look at it. I don’t think I could possibly slop something together at a work station like this.
Naked french cleat! Ooo La La.
I had my “speed kills” shirt from the Oregon Coast Aquarium in Newport on today and it seemed to fit with the pace of the day, hence the title.
On another note my wife carved a block print bear and stamped my shop apron, very awesome.
Thanks for reading. Have a great week.
