Roll Around Tool Cabinet #28: Jeez Louise, Did I Measure That Wrong?

03-18-2017 08:18 PM by HappyHowie | 21 comments »

I determined I needed a better spacer jig from what I started with in order to mount these drawer slides. So I went back to my big box store and bought two 3/4 by 24 by 48 inch small, easy to handle panels of MDF. I cross-cut both of their lengths to the 31 9/16 inches. This is the length I needed in order to mount my top-most 3 inch tall drawer. Then I ripped their widths. This dimension was calculated so with the panels pushed back against the back frame and panel its front edge woul...

Roll Around Tool Cabinet #27: Spacers to be Used to Mount Drawer Slides

03-15-2017 05:47 AM by HappyHowie | 1 comment »

PANEL SPACERS FOR MOUNTING DRAWER SLIDES In this blog post I am going to reveal how this engineer thinks, or solves some of these woodworking problems; especially if it involves a bit of mathematics. In this case it is simple addition, subtraction, etc. Many or maybe all of you may want to stop reading right here. That is fine. I am writing this mainly for myself so I have a record how I solved fitting these seven drawers into this cabinet’s bay. Once a problem is solved then the issu...

Roll Around Tool Cabinet #24: Sprayed Shellac to Seal Dye. What Finish Coat to Use???

03-10-2017 04:43 AM by HappyHowie | 8 comments »

I sprayed two coats of Zinsser’s clear shellac today in order to seal the dye I wiped on all surfaces of this cabinet last night. Now I need to make a choice for the top coat finish. I have several cans of lacquer and polyurethane in my shop. Which should I use. This cabinet is a shop tool cabinet so durability is probably my biggest concern. I will study a couple of my finish books tonight. QUESTIONWhat finish coat should I spray tomorrow? Lacquer? Or Polyurethane? I al...

Roll Around Tool Cabinet #19: Router a Recess Area for a Drawer Finger Pull?

02-24-2017 02:32 AM by HappyHowie | 4 comments »

Below is an image I took of the seven drawers stacked upon each other. In the image the drawers are just dry fitted. The dovetail drawer material is poplar with sapele hardwood fastened to the drawer fronts with double-side tape for the moment. I have not used any oil or finish on the hardwood as yet so its grain is not showing off as well as it will when oiled. However, it is already beautiful. I liked this look so much that I decided not to follow the plan I am using by drilling semi-...

Roll Around Tool Cabinet #18: Final Stages on This Tool Cabinet

02-22-2017 05:31 AM by HappyHowie | 1 comment »

Today I glued and clamped the poplar breadboard ends to the the top plywood plate as well as the 3/8 inch thick trim around the base plate to cover its plies. Tomorrow I will need to trim the sides of this breadboard top. I will do that at my Saw Stop or I may use my #6 WoodRiver bench plane. We’ll see what will work best; maybe both. After I completed the steps listed above I determined my next step would be to resaw the large Sapele plank. I calculated that about 1/4 inch th...

Roll Around Tool Cabinet #14: Cut Dovetails with My Leigh D4R JIG

02-17-2017 06:56 AM by HappyHowie | 0 comments »

Seven drawers that I decided to cut through dovetails instead of using a drawer lock router bit. One drawers in this tool cabinet is 7 1/8 inch tall. The rest come in pairs with the following dept or heights: 5 inches, 4 inches and lastly 3 inches. They are all 17 3/4 inches long and 14 inches wide. The image below shows the set of two drawer boxes that are 3 inches tall. The rest of the drawer parts are stacked next to these boxes. I will be resawing the 8/4 rough sawn sapele plank th...

Roll Around Tool Cabinet #9: Frame and Panel Back and Doors Glued and Clamped

02-04-2017 05:35 AM by HappyHowie | 0 comments »

After sanding all frame and panel parts to 220 grit, I dry fitted the back and doors again. My glue up of the back frame and panel was going to be done on my large assembly table. I knew this glue up would take a lot of time and patience. I selected Titebond III glue for its longer setup time. I would use my long pipe clamps for the long length clamping needs. The pipe clamps would be used to close the frames onto the panels so they would be seated firmly together. Width-wise I would be...
