Topic tags/keywords: humor jig tip

This weekend on Blue Collar Woodworking we are beginning a three month project: “The ultimate tool cabinet build”. But since it would be pretty boring to just watch us make a cabinet, we’re going to pack those episodes full of extras.

For example, the first part of the series, set to air this weekend, will feature a shop made machine to make the first step in the build a lot easier! This machine is designed to make a frequent shop task faster, more accurate and cheaper to do! Try to guess what it is…

So what is it? How will it be used to begin out tool cabinet build? You’d better friend us on Facebook, subscribe to our youtube channel, add me us a friend on LJ’s and bookmark our blog, do whatever it takes to be SURE you get each video in the series!

In case you haven’t seen our proposed design yet…
First, it is pretty large, over 4 feet wide, 12 inches deep and almost 3 feet tall when it’s closed. It can mount on a wall, stand on some legs, or in my case, it will sit on a bench. It will be made of solid oak.

Besides the six lower drawers, it has a series of swing outs behind the two main cabinet doors. It also holds a complete set of basic planes (#3-#8, various block and smaller planes).

Behind the doors are slots for a double row of chisels, screw drivers, etc (right above the drawers). Then there are a pair of double sided swing-outs that can hold a large variety of small tools. These swing-outs are behind both drawers, holding a total of eight layers of tools. In the photos below only one side is shown opened completely.

It can hold a huge amount of tools, much more that the typical cabinet of it’s size can. The design was also created for another reason, it forces me to use a variety of skills including three types of dovetails, raides panels, various dados, etc.

Looks like a dedicated hinge mortiser to me. Should be a great episode Stumpy.

Nope, Ryan. Matthais never made one of these, and it is not based on any of his designs.
