« Part 11: Wood Magazine Clamshell Cabinet #2 started. Part 12 of Woodworking projects under way. series Part 13: Wood Magazine clamshell cabinet part deaux. dadoes cut, now on to the rabbets... »

So last night I got the inner doors assembled (see my previous blog entry in this series for photos). They are nice and square, glued and screwed together very solidly. I have a LOT of cutting and dado-ing left to do, but I ran into a bit of a quandry after assembling the doors last night…

I ran out of screws…

Actually I need more than just screws to complete this project. In order to fully pull this off I will need…

#1. Another sheet of peg board. I COULD re-use the one on the wall, but I still have stuff hanging on it. I would need to figure out what to temporarily move that stuff to, and even if I do, I have other projects needing peg board coming up. Might as well use the stuff that is there to organize until I no longer need it… #2. Piano hinges. I have the short hinges for the inner doors, but I need 2 30” hinges for the outers. I am planning on simply grabbing a single 72” piano hinge and cutting it to length . I will need to trim shorter ones anyway… Save a few bucks that way and end up with what I want… #3. Magnetic catches. I need 4 of them… #4. Box of screws. I am using 2.5” coated deck screws for this due to the humid environment. When I forget to run the AC it gets awfully muggy in there… I want to avoid rust. #5. 3” swivel locking casters with urethane wheels. 200 lb capacity minimum. #6. 5/16”-18×2” eye bolts. #7. 5/16” fender washers #8 5/16”-18×2.5” machine bolts. #9. Fresh 2 part epoxy. #10. 2 more sheets of 3/4 cabinet grade Home Depot plywood (cheap).

Huh, casters? Eye bolts? Fender washers and machine bolts? More plywood? How do those relate?

Oh yeah, that is the upcoming projects… I need to build a pair of rolling flip top tool stands. One of them will be dedicated to the bench top jointer, and my lunch box planer. The other will house my Ridgid sander, and my not yet in my possession Grizzly 12” disc sander (wishlist item… Maybe Santa will be nice this year…). This will allow me to maximize my floor space without further aggravating my back problems… I do NOT want to lift these heavy machines any more than I absolutely have to…
