1.) So here is my feeble yet enriching experiment into my first true cabinet using casework joinery. All joints were done via tongue & groove, no screws, all glue & clamp. I really like tongue & groove joinery as it reminds me of Lego’s… and 2 table saw setups can cut all tongue & grooves from start to finish. I have done some simpler fully housed dado’s on other projects. What should I work on next? I have to do a nearly identical cabinet for my Grizzly combo sander & sanding tools. I currently want to stay away from pocket screw joinery for time being. I strongly believe to start with a challenge. Face frames & Rails/Stile door joinery? I’m getting the casework lingo down thanks to 5 cabinet books I purchased from amazon:
2.) One hand tool I have not acquired yet is a belt sander. I have 3 hand sanders (ros bosch’s). Are the belt sanders welcomed and admired in your wood shop? If so, for what purposes ?
3.) As I have no belt sander, I have no OSS either. My old delta oscillating sanding attachment kit to my 10” drill press works but … I know it’s not ideal. I see little grizzly OSS and shopmaster’s here and there. Worth having in your shop ?
