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 ...

Blogging instead of Woodworking #9: A tool cabinet, not a tool display case

08-19-2014 05:11 PM by Douglas | 3 comments »

After taking a whole day to clean rust spots off my nice tools, I got smart and finally closed the damn cabinet doors. I blogged about it here… http://dcwwoodworks.com/blog/2014/8/19/a-tool-cabinet-not-a-tool-display-case Thanks

Made this tool chest to hold some of my hand tools and marking tools. This was very simple and made from 1 sheet of 3/4” plywood. Check out the video here. As always, please share and subscribe!

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 ...

Tool Cabinet Build #9: Tambour Part 3..

11-11-2013 12:43 AM by Airframer | 9 comments »

I was able to squeak in a few hours of shop time today so I finally got back to work on the tool cabinet build. First thing was to plug the back end of the sliding dovetails so i can get the back ready for some T&G slats. With that done I wanted to knock out another part that I had been putting off which was gluing up the canvas onto the tambour doors. I had been putting this off because it required a fixture to be built to hold everything square whi...

Tool Cabinet Build #7: Refocusing, Reorganizing and Sliding Dovetails..

09-23-2013 04:55 PM by Airframer | 8 comments »

I realized yesterday morning that I was getting way ahead of myself trying to make the saw till with the door guides before the case was assembled. I need to know the exact dimensions of the space it will occupy before I build it *doh! So I got re-organized and turned my focus on prepping the panels for assembly. First thing on that list was to knock out the grooves for the sliding dovetailed drawer cubbies. I asked my helper if he wanted to help me out but he was busy chilling on the...

Tool Cabinet Build #6: Tambour Part 2..

09-22-2013 03:31 AM by Airframer | 3 comments »

Today started out really productive but life intervened and production tapered off in the after noon so not as far along as I had hoped I would be by this time but might make it up tomorrow. I started the day out with some coffee and a no 3. After both doors worth of slats were flat I got my Grizzly round over plane and spent a leisurely time adding a round over to the face of all the slats lol. Added some painters tape to keep the doors together before glueup com...

Tool Cabinet Build #5: Tool Layout and Tambour Doors 1..

09-21-2013 05:30 AM by Airframer | 16 comments »

Had an unexpected early day at work today (which was nice after nearly 2 weeks of 15+ hour days) so I took advantage of it and started laying out the tool storage preliminary plan. Here is the rough idea.. From the front minus doors.. Behind the plane till and tool storage will be a secondary wall that separates the planes and tools from a pair of saw tills hidden in the back wall. And a quick mock-up to see it in scale.. the saws on the front will be in the back in their ...

Tool Cabinet Build #4: 3 down 1 gluing plus a Bonus Handtool Tip of The Day...

09-17-2013 05:13 PM by Airframer | 8 comments »

Over the last couple of days before and after work I have had an assembly line of sorts going on in the shop for the glue up of the side, top and bottom panels of the cabinet case. I am up to 3 done and one more in clamps as we speak. As each one came out of the clamps and a new one went in I went about cleaning up and flattening the faces with a myriad of hand planes and my scraper. I purposely made each panel slightly oversized just in case I needed to rip a glue joint and re-joi...
