« Part 2: Initial Plan Part 3 of New Yankee Miter Bench Vs. Utimate Tool Stand series Part 4: Rabbiting the Wrong Side....Grrrr. »

Well, finally time to advance this blog. It has been more than 4 years ago when I created the last entry on this blog. I was out of the country on business for more than 3 years, causing my shop to be mothballed. Most recently work has been eating into my weekend time. Today I finally started cutting wood on my Miter Bench.

After a full morning with my tracksaw and table saw, I had a nice stack of wood, all the 3/4 plywood pieces are ready to go:

I spent early afternoon with the table saw and dado blade installed, cutting rabbits and dadoes. Also used the jigsaw to cut notches for the cleats. By mid-afternoon I started assembly and finished assembling the first cabinet carcase:

And by this evening, I completed the second carcase:

I hope tomorrow to get it all shimmed, squared, and screwed to the wall. Hopefully next weekend will be drawer time.

Thanks for reading.
