I had some time today where I couldn’t work on the baby craddle so I decided to get started roughing out the bathroom vanity. I’ve had a chunk of oak in the garage for years that fit the bill perfectly. It was all hand cut with my two old jackson backsaws and a cheap harbor frieght panel say that I recut the teeth on for ripping. (if anyone wants to send me a nice panel saw it would not go amiss ;)).
Here is the design I came up with
and here is my poor man’s leg vice. I just move up and down the drawers as needed so I can reach my work. Soon I will make a saw bench to help me out instead of this, and then on to a bench. I just like working with these saws so much better than my table saw.
I have one piece left over to make the pins and another that is just the right size for a cigar box guitar neck!
