My journey has come to an important milestone. Cabinetry…
but without a single drop of glue or any metal fastener – not even hinges.
Exclusively out of wood. But why am I doing this?
I’ve shared my story and my concept in my bed post:
The usual slideshow about the build:
It has quite some photos condensed in it.
Any suggestion for a decent (and free) online slideshow generator site?
This cabinet is my third piece of furniture. This time I really needed everything I’ve learnt from previous projects. It has 40 pegged M&Ts and 30 feet of edge joining with sliding dovetails. So both techniques needed their own dedicated jigs to do them accurately and less time consuming. I had built the dovetail jig (photo 5) for the dining table so I “only…” had to make the M&T jig (photo 4). I think I’ll post that long journey in a blog later. In the slideshow you can see one of the several tries savagely torn apart… After weeks of developing the M&T jig, I now have a complete set of jigs for several joining types of M&T. Now it takes nanoseconds to make a pegged M&T. Well, … less than a billion. :-)
No finish on it. We love it this way. It’s going to store our trekking and climbing gears.
Now it’s time to make our kitchen cabinets…
Thanks for watching,
