Shop Cabinet build #12: Plugs done, latches installed, stain applied

04-04-2020 01:09 AM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

Update on that plug cutter, needed sharpened…and a skinny board for the vise on the drill press. was having trouble cutting the plugs.. Once they were made, a small screwdriver could pop them out, dab of glue on the narrow end, and tap into place.. let the glue set a bit. Chisel and a tap with the hammer to trim the plugs down…block plane to smooth things out.Sharpened the cutter, today.. And made the last 11 plugs. made a road trip to Lowes, and picked up the latche...

So, mail a box out, then head to Lowes for a bit…even had the van’s window down a bit….enjoyed the fresh air, as it were…. Anyway, bought 2 hinges. 30” long. With TINY screws…We have ways… Had some 1” screws I could add in, about every 4th screw. Had the driver for the screws, another with a VIX bit… Needed a way to set the doors open, while...

Of Tool Cabinets, Chewing Gum and Sealng Wax #6: Lower Case Assembly

10-07-2018 06:26 PM by Bill Berklich | 0 comments »

Ok – It’s been awhile since I had the chance to work on my Tool Cabinet. Last November to be exact. But, the project is underway once again. Getting back into any long shelved project is always a challenge, time passes, things are forgotten, pieces are mislaid, and parts are used for other purposes. No different on this project but after a week of excavating, rooting, and cleaning I managed to identify and collect all of the critical parts and pieces. As I stood staring at the pile of lumb...

My Most Useful Shop Projects

03-11-2018 04:35 PM by HappyHowie | 2 comments »

Over the years i have built many items for use in my shop. Everyday now I am reminded how useful two projects have been in my shop. These are the Roll-around Tool Cabinet and my Drill Press Cabinet with its wide drawers and cubby shelves. I am able to roll away the cabinet when spending time at my drill press or to access the cubby shelves that are at the rear of the cabinet. Everything related to the drill press is stored in this cabinet. I still have room in the Roll-around Tool C...

Of Tool Cabinets, Chewing Gum and Sealng Wax #5: Lower Cabinet Design - Tool Packing

11-23-2017 02:59 AM by Bill Berklich | 5 comments »

SktechUp – what a great tool! I can change things much easier, explore design options, and visualize architectures far easier. After a couple false starts a bit of learning on how SketchUp works compared to its big brothers the lower cabinet literally came together. The lower cabinet is expressly to house most of my power tools – the ones I reach for regularly. The multi-tool and biscuit joiner will stay in their respective cases because they just don’t get used much. T...

Of Tool Cabinets, Chewing Gum and Sealng Wax #4: Thoughts in SketchUp

11-12-2017 09:35 PM by Bill Berklich | 3 comments »

Temps dropped, cold in the shop so refocused to more indoor activities. Friday (November 10th), of course, was the U.S. Marine Corps 242nd Birthday – Semper Fi Brothers past, present, and future, and may we serve 300 more with honor. Did the Vets day thing too on Saturday served breakfast to a host of Korea and Vietnam Vets and some of the few remaining WWII Vets too. I have to say that I met a guy who was on the USN Nautilus. The first nuclear sub and the first to sail under the pola...

Tool Cabinets #2: Tool cabinet has become tool WALL

11-12-2017 03:22 AM by glideking | 10 comments »

Having the 3D controller in my left had and the trackpad in my right has been a game changer. I can now fly through my plans. Thought I would start cutting lumber today but I keep coming up with ideas on my drawings in Sketchup. As the program gets easier for me I am exploring construction and configuration possibilities. The back panels and flipper doors have become bead board. Added crown molding just to learn the “follow me” tool in Sketchup. I did not want the saw till behind ...

The Quest for a Better Bench #7: The last part...

11-12-2017 01:43 AM by PlanBWoodworks | 0 comments »

So the bench was DONE. I was very happy with the way that it turned out. It was solid, it was heavy, it was visually appealing and it was going to be around for a long time. Just in case you don’t remember what it looked like: Ok, I’ll admit, I just wanted to show it off. Anyway, because I was so pleased with the bench, I decided to rearrange my entire shop. This led to some storage issues. Also, the bench that I dismantled to make room for the new bench was the bench where I mou...

Roll Around Tool Cabinet #28: Jeez Louise, Did I Measure That Wrong?

03-18-2017 08:18 PM by HappyHowie | 21 comments »

I determined I needed a better spacer jig from what I started with in order to mount these drawer slides. So I went back to my big box store and bought two 3/4 by 24 by 48 inch small, easy to handle panels of MDF. I cross-cut both of their lengths to the 31 9/16 inches. This is the length I needed in order to mount my top-most 3 inch tall drawer. Then I ripped their widths. This dimension was calculated so with the panels pushed back against the back frame and panel its front edge woul...
