Tool Cabinet Build #18: Saw Till and Tambours Finally Finished!

04-13-2015 03:00 AM by Airframer | 8 comments »

We had some nice weather today so the shop door was opened and sanding and finishing of the second door commenced. Once that was done they both got a good waxing along with the channels. Then the back was glued in place and with some accidental interior squeeze out issues cleaned up I now have a functional saw till with two tambour access doors. So easy a toddler can use ‘em lol. He spent the next 10 minutes opening and closing them. He even moved his saw into the ...

Tool Cabinet Build #17: Saw Till and Tambours #3...

04-11-2015 01:29 AM by Airframer | 5 comments »

A lot has happened since the last update just nothing that looks like much of anything has been done lol. I hate that kind of progress but it must be made to move forward. Yesterday I was able to finish up cutting and fitting the track for the doors to ride in. Something that should be done before one of the panels is immovable… yeah.. that got a bit tricky but with the help of some brass stock and some juice cans I got it all glued up successfully. After tha...

Tool Cabinet Build #15: Saw Till and Tambours Oh My!

04-07-2015 02:29 AM by Airframer | 3 comments »

I had to put on the breaks this morning just before I started working on the doors some more. I had the sudden and timely realization that in order to properly square up the doors with the case the case needs to be glued and stable. So in order to do that I needed to finish up the saw till which is attached to the back and middle dividing wall. First though.. going back a couple days.. I had another epiphany. I want the drawer fronts to fit flush inside the case. I know from experience...

Tool Cabinet Build #14: Cabinet Doors #1

04-04-2015 01:45 AM by Airframer | 7 comments »

Welp, today I got started on the doors for the cabinet. First though while the wife and I were at our local dollar store I grabbed a couple sheets of foam project panels to use as a layout planner for the interior spaces. This will help to show how the cabinet is divided up better I think. The front is for an assortment of tools.. And behind the interior wall is the saw till accessed by the small tambour doors on either side of the case.. If my measuring is correct I should...

Tool Cabinet Build #13: Getting Back At It...

04-03-2015 02:28 AM by Airframer | 3 comments »

Aside from this being the second longest build on LJ’s next to Stef’s workbench build, I have finally started back to work on this cabinet. We last left off with me finding out that I need to learn front from back. The rabbets cut for the back were actually done on the front of the top and bottom panels. After a year and a half of pretending the problem would fix it’s self I finally ripped the offending section off and glued up a new strip of wood. Cut a couple new dov...

Mini hand tool cabinet #2: Hybrid milling

09-03-2014 06:14 PM by JSOvens | 1 comment »

With the planning more or less completed, it was time to decide on what wood to use. I recently acquired quite a bit of hardwood lumber, using up my lumber budget for about a year or so, so I was quite set on using what I had, rather than buying wood specifically for this project. The problem is, I didn’t really have any that were suitably sized for this project (in width or thickness). Furthermore, since I am making this cabinet small, there is a really possibility it will be replaced ...

Tool Cabinet Build #11: Tonguing and Grooving The Night Away...

11-14-2013 03:21 AM by Airframer | 4 comments »

So I finally finished cleaning up and installing the missing parts for my #45 and couldn’t resist putting it to work. First lets catch up.. Last installment I had finished 1 of 2 rabbets for the top and bottom of the back. I finished up the second one last night. This one didn’t go as smoothly as the last and I really cannot pin point the issue but my #78 just would not cooperate. I ended up chopping the whole thing with a chisel. Remind me not to do that again lol. I...

Tool Cabinet Build #10: Tambour and Rabbets... Oh My..

11-12-2013 03:57 PM by Airframer | 10 comments »

The glue is dry on the canvas backs for the tambour doors. Pulled them out of the jig yesterday and broke them all free of each other and to my surprise they curl up very nicely! Then I got started on a spot that has cause me some anxiety for some reason… the back of the cabinet.. After weighing the options I have decided on T&G with rabbets on the top and bottom and grooves along the sides with a center “Key Stone” slat with tongues on both sides ...
