« Part 8: Hand beaded back with oil. Yum! Part 9 of Tool Cabinets series no next part


Plywood cleat on tool cabinet back


Cleat on wall


Cut panel groves 3/8” with Stanley 45


Used a hardwood block as a guide to keep mortices square to stock


Chopped the tenons out with a chisel


I left the tenons long enough to support both sides of the hand router then cut to length. I used a second router set to final depth for a fine cut.

Looks great so far. It’s always nice to see someone using handtools skillfully. What are the slots on the bottom for?

“I left the tenons long enough to support both sides of the hand router then cut to length” Great tip! You have quite the hand tool collection!
