A Pair of Simple Cabinets

Furnished content.

A Pair of Simple CabinetsSPECSTimeframe: 03-28 Jan 2019Wood Used: Reclaimed Pine, Hinges and Latch Hardware. Heck, even the Slotted Screws are second hand…Galoot Index: 7 on a 10 point scale. Material cut by hand saw and RAS, table saw and band saw. Smoothed and jointed w/ hand planes. Rabbets with the No. 78, smoothing with SW #4 and even the #9 mitre plane. M&T panel doors. Hinges mortised with chisels and #271 router. Hand planed mouldings, top and bottom.Cost: $0 for wood, hardware, everything. All salvage.NARRATIVEHello everyone!The last installment of the extended pair of blog entries (No. 1 Cabinet, and No 2 Cabinet) for this project showed how I got here, so I won't go into great (repeating) detail. The first build was on a whim, truly a build just to use moulding made with an old plane.My Dad insisted I make a second, so of course I did. :-)They'll likely be shop cabinets, that's tbd. Same as the finish. They may get brown sides and clear coat for front, or all get a milk paint treatment I haven't decided. I did enjoy the build, and blogging along the way. Please feel free to read those and comment, always appreciate input. Thanks for looking.

Moxon Vise Bench

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Moxon Vise BenchI had been planning one of these for a very long time, but never could decide what to use. I had pretty much settled on using veneer press screws, but they aren't cheap. Shout out to PlanBWoodworks for the idea to use these killer dumb bell screws from Walmart. They are perfect and they were cheap.I carefully routed out a recess in the back of the face to capture the odd shaped nut. It works great. The shape also works very well for grip as a small “wheel” for tightening. I made simple white oak washers to give it a little spacing and take the force. Size is on the smaller size with 15” between the screws. That should be plenty for the work I intend to do. Everything works great! Can't believe I ever went without one of these.Woods are white oak and mahogany. I had some that fit perfectly and I wanted something nice in the shop. Finished with BLO. Now when I start my self guided dovetail apprenticeship I will feel special and skilled already :)
