Hi everyone, Hope all is well in woodworkingland. Today was a very slow one, not to mention interrupted at every turn, but I did still manage to get something done.
I always laugh about how quickly a case or cabinet goes together and how easy they seem after making chairs and I ask myself “Why don’t I just make cabinets?”
Well I am in the thick of making cabinets and hit a brick wall of sorts with the tills that will hold the tools in place. I figured out my cleat system well enough, but the layout and construction is very tedious.
I managed to get a spokeshave holder done that I am happy enough with and scorp holder that I feel sits a bit low, but I can live with it for now. I am hoping tomorrow will be more productive.
Here is some pics of today’s tedium. Enjoy.
For the spokeshave holder I made a mock-up to get the distances between rods right and I am happy with it.
For the scorp holder, it does its’ function well, but sits a bit low on the wall and I might redo it down the road.
I like how the modular aspect of the layout in that I can move things around to make a good fit without screwing holes in the wood. I will attach things to the sides permanently once I know what I want there, which may only come after I have put everything together and used it for a bit.
I know it’s a few spokeshaves, but it is my most used tool and I like to have a variety to pick from when I use them.
Have fun woodworking. ;)
