For those of us that are always trying to hone our skills, and using shop projects or similar to do the job, what’s your next skill builder / shop project?
Mine is a set of clamshell door cabinets, with pegboard panel inserts to store my small parts bins, as well as router bits, routing accessories, and measuring & marking tools.
The casework will be done with locking miters, dadoes, and will include smallish drawers for dovetail practice. The hinges will be mortised in. The entire cabinet will be made from plywood which will be edge banded, and peg board.
I have one in progress, that is a redo of a failed skill builder drill press table. (cutting dadoes with the router was a HUGE fail).
I would like to redo my workbench, but instead of the truss rod bolted base, I am VERY interested in designing / building a hardwood base (probably flat sawn oak) and using mortise and tenon.
