For the cabinets, I wanted movable shelves. I was told that the Euro style round pins “looked tacky”, and I didn’t want to run tracks, but I’d run across a note by Charles Wilson suggesting the use of Dominos for shelf pins, and that seemed like a great idea. I cut a strip of wood the width of the spacing I wanted, cut it in half, put a lip on each one so that I could place it on the edge of my carcase sides and it’d protrude over at 90 degrees. Then it was j...

Well life has been busy for me, like most of us on here I’m sure. Between X-mas, work, travel, and the Honey do list, how time flies.

I need to cut about 200 or so biscuit slots for a set of bookcases, using my PC plate joiner. First time I have used the joiner and noticed it jumps around so I built a jig to hold the joiner securely in place against a fence. The jig is a modifed, striped down version of one shown in a magazine, I think Better Homes and Garden 101 Best Shop Jigs Ever. The plan called for a plywood base with a 1/8 inch masonite top, T-slots, hold-downs, the works. Mine is just 3/4” MDF thrown togeth...

I’m building cabinets for under my bench. I’m following the ‘plans’ provided and they call for splines and slots. From the plans: So, I spent the better part of a day routing out 1/4” deep 1/8” slots in 3/4” birch ply which mates up with some rock maple edging with corresponding slots. I’m thinking ”Hey, this is going to look really cool, birch and maple.” Got the splines cut and started dry assembly only to discover that t...
