« Part 4: Doors made! Part 5 of Shop done. Let's build something series no next part

Today I managed to get the second door glued up, the top glued up, and the frame and doors prepped for finishing with scraper, sandpaper, and tack cloth.

Both doors now done

Scraping the cabinet frame. Notice the nice angle my newfangled bench can position the frame clamped in.

I jointed and glued the two pieces that will make up the top.

A cove molding made on the router table This will go against the cabinet under the top overhang.

Good job but I must ask…..............................Where did you get the Stanley clamps? Are they as expensive as Jet or Bessey?

Stanley, bailey clamps. They work great… Big lots.. I’ve come across them for $10 each for the 24” and I managed to find two 6 footers for $15. I couldn’t pass them up. Other places I see them for 3 or 4 times that.

Holy Cow. That is a great price. I need to start looking for some. I’ve never seen them before you did this post. Thanks.

Yes it is. They usually have their grey high test trigger clamps too for about $10. If I were smart I’d buy 10 of them. I purchased some really cheap ones and they lasted just long enough to let me know that they are very handy.

Thats a great idea for saving your back, Maybe some kind of jig like that would come in handy for future use.

Big Lots I’ve never seen the parallel clamps there. How long ago did you get them?
