Tea Bag Holder Cabinet #9: The base is created

03-01-2021 04:08 AM by sras | 15 comments »

Several distractions over the past several days meant the base took a while to complete. First was to create a template for a document slot. A little creative clamping. And we have a template. Set the router table up with a guide bearing bit and double stick tape the template in place. And we have a pocket roughed out. All that was left was to square up the corners. The rest of the base work involves several settings on the router table. Last time I tried...

Tea Bag Holder Cabinet #6: Box Assembly

02-12-2021 02:30 AM by sras | 4 comments »

This entry covers the last 3 days. I got the door assembly out of the clamps. So far so good. And here is where all the time went. It took 2 days to get the finish right on the interior surfaces. I masked off any surface that would accept glue later. Time for a side project while the finish dries. My hinges came with #2 sized screws. If I open up the countersinks I can use a #4 which has a lot more holding power. I used my sacrificial block from cutting the hinge notc...

Tea Bag Holder Cabinet #5: Door construction

02-09-2021 03:40 AM by sras | 2 comments »

The door blank needs to be split into 2 parts – a door top and a door front. I’m going to join them with a mitered rabbet joint. I cut the step for the rabbet on the router table. The rest of the cuts were done on the table saw. I made sure I had the blade set at an exact 45 degrees. It took a bit few passes to sneak up on the fit. I was so involved I forgot to take any set up pictures. Here is the result. I then glued the mitered rabbet as the first as...

Here’s a piece ready for routing The template provides extra support while rounding the first edge. The s...

Tea Bag Holder Cabinet #3: Some steps back and a few more forward

02-07-2021 03:07 AM by sras | 7 comments »

First up today was to correct a mistake I made yesterday. When I cut the back rabbet on the top I had the part turned around. I have been keeping parts aligned so the grain pattern runs across the top and down the front. With this mistake the grain didn’t line up at all. So I cut a filler piece from some scrap. I cut it slightly oversize on the thickness and width. The length matches the top. Some glue and clamps. After the glue set up I trimed the patch to fit. ...

Tea Bag Holder Cabinet #2: Second day of the build

02-06-2021 12:54 AM by sras | 8 comments »

Next up is to create a second level similar to the first. A 5/16” straight bit allowed me to leave 1/8” on the outside. Grooves are cut into both sides of both pieces. Then set up the 1/8” ovolo bit to round over the edge. That takes care of the outer surface details for now. Next up is the back and the sides. A portion of each side is part of the doors. A straight bit is set up for a rabbet to accept the sides and the back. T...
