Roll Around Tool Cabinet #22: Glued and Screwed Caster Base and Breadboard End Top

03-07-2017 01:58 AM by HappyHowie | 0 comments »

I placed the case up on its head so I could pre-drill screw holes from inside the case so the screws would be hidden when I glued and screwed the top on to the case. I had marked the sides of the case to match the location of the caster base so the caster base would be centered on the case. I also used a rule to mark the locations where I would pre-drill screw locations in order to fasten the caster base onto the cabinet case. I was using #8 – 1 1/4” square head screws t...

Roll Around Tool Cabinet #17: After Today, What's Left? Glue and Some Screws...

02-21-2017 02:15 AM by HappyHowie | 0 comments »

Let’s see, what did I get done today? The corbells… I had to draw the shape of the corbell. All of that was straight forward. With a photocopy of my scaled drawing, I glued it to 1/4 MDF. With my spokeshave I smoothed the curved surfaces. I had already cut four poplar blocks to the same dimensions. Since they were all the same size I used double-sided tape to hold the four parts together. Then I cut the corbell shape out on my bandsaw. Some more spokeshave sork and then t...

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...

Roll Around Tool Cabinet #8: Cut 1/4" Panels and Dry Fit Frames and Panels

01-29-2017 05:14 AM by HappyHowie | 1 comment »

I setup my small workbench as an in-feed for my table saw and my assembly table as its out-feed table so I could manage my 4 by 8 foot 1/4” Baltic Birch plywood sheet. First I ripped a strip 18 1/2” wide. With this strip I would trim the width further plus cross the seven drawer bottoms. With my circular saw I crosscut and end from the remaining sheet approximately 30 inches in length. The four 4 inch by 28 1/2 inch panels for the long drawer would be cut at the table saw....

Roll Around Tool Cabinet #3: Milling and Cutting My Poplar Hardwood Lumber

01-24-2017 03:29 PM by HappyHowie | 0 comments »

Snow storms here prompted me to purchase much of my poplar lumber at my local big box stores instead of traveling downtown to purchase rough sawn lumber which would have been my preference. I knew by purchasing 3/4 inch thick sanded lumber would give me issues. I became very selective in finding the straightest boards I could find. I was hoping that I would only lose maybe 1/8 inches of thickness instead of typical 1/4 inch with rough sawn lumber. I set my jointer to slice very thin amoun...
