Roll Around Tool Cabinet #29: Drawers: Planed, Pared and Hung

04-07-2017 05:32 AM by HappyHowie | 0 comments »

HAND PLANES AND PARING CHISEL USED TO GET PROUD JOINTS FLUSH TO DRAWER PART SURFACES For those that have followed my blog entries for this project, my last entry was a few weeks ago. Back then I had witnessed that my drawers seemed to be too wide, but after further measurements and inspection my drawers were just very tight. I needed to pare or make flush the proud dovetail joints on the corners of these drawer boxes. I have not worked in my shop for three weeks because I have bee...

Roll Around Tool Cabinet #20: Detail Work: Drawer Fronts and Breadboard End Top Layout

03-02-2017 05:49 AM by HappyHowie | 0 comments »

Today I worked with detail finish work. For instance, I sprayed three layers of Shellac clear to seal the dye that I had applied to the poplar drawer front backs. With each of these drawers I had taped prior to applying the dye. However, the tape did not keep the dye from finding its way to where I did not want it. I decided that I would use my #4 smoothing plane on the sapele to clean the surface by removing the wood that got some of the dye on it. This included using one or real...

Roll Around Tool Cabinet #18: Final Stages on This Tool Cabinet

02-22-2017 05:31 AM by HappyHowie | 1 comment »

Today I glued and clamped the poplar breadboard ends to the the top plywood plate as well as the 3/8 inch thick trim around the base plate to cover its plies. Tomorrow I will need to trim the sides of this breadboard top. I will do that at my Saw Stop or I may use my #6 WoodRiver bench plane. We’ll see what will work best; maybe both. After I completed the steps listed above I determined my next step would be to resaw the large Sapele plank. I calculated that about 1/4 inch th...

Roll Around Tool Cabinet #16: All Doors Finally Are Hung

02-19-2017 06:20 AM by HappyHowie | 1 comment »

Before hanging the remaining three doors it was clear to me that I should mount the magnetic door catches first. After analyzing the location where I should mount them, I decided they should be mounted out-of-sight on the face frame; not into the doors themselves. I was going to drill a 11/32 inch diameter hole in the face frame above the doors about one inch from the center of the cabinet. The striker plate would be fastened below the magnetic catch on top of the doors. It also became clea...

Roll Around Tool Cabinet #15: Began Hanging Doors and Marked Drawers for Routing Grooves

02-18-2017 05:30 AM by HappyHowie | 0 comments »

Finally, I began hanging the doors on this cabinet. After hanging the first door, I decided to change the method or steps of this process. I determined it would be easier for me to fasten the butt hinge first to the case’s face frame. Since I have routed the mortises on the doors as well as on the face frame of the case, I was confident that these mortises for the hinges were aligned very close to their final position. I did discover that micro adjustments may have to be made when I ...

Roll Around Tool Cabinet #12: Sixteen Hinge Mortises Routed

02-11-2017 04:35 AM by HappyHowie | 0 comments »

With the mortising jigs made, I clamped and routed the butt mortises on the doors. Once the mortises were routed on the doors, I positioned the doors in the case opening taking into account the gaps I needed when all of the doors were shut. I had shims placed between the face frame and the bottom of the doors to measure these gaps. A few doors I have to hand plane to make the gaps even and the same. Once that was completed I marked the corresponding location of the hinges on the face fra...

Roll Around Tool Cabinet #11: Made JIGs Today: Dovetail On Table Saw & Butt Hinge Mortising JIG

02-07-2017 05:43 AM by HappyHowie | 1 comment »

This roll around tool cabinet is a project I took on so I could learn new techniques and processes. This will be my first frame and panel project build. Besides that I have also chosen to use some new techniques in this build. CUTTING DOVETAILS ON MY TABLE SAW BY USING L-SHAPED FENCE ON MITER GAUGE I have seen others on the Internet use their table saw to cut dovetails. I will use a Gregory Paolini process to cut my dovetails and pins using L-style fences fastened to my INCRA 1000HD m...

Roll Around Tool Cabinet #10: Fastened Frame and Panel Back onto Case

02-05-2017 03:32 AM by HappyHowie | 1 comment »

Again rehearsing dry clamping procedure helps to determine the best way to clamp this back to the case. What I learned was that I needed two long pipe clamps in order to make sure the frame and the case went together squarely. Plus I needed about a 1/8” thin shim piece on the bottom right side of the case just below the face frame so enough of the face frame would be proud of the case all along the right side of that case. Once the clamping solution was determined in the dry fit, ...

Roll Around Tool Cabinet #9: Frame and Panel Back and Doors Glued and Clamped

02-04-2017 05:35 AM by HappyHowie | 0 comments »

After sanding all frame and panel parts to 220 grit, I dry fitted the back and doors again. My glue up of the back frame and panel was going to be done on my large assembly table. I knew this glue up would take a lot of time and patience. I selected Titebond III glue for its longer setup time. I would use my long pipe clamps for the long length clamping needs. The pipe clamps would be used to close the frames onto the panels so they would be seated firmly together. Width-wise I would be...
