I haven’t blogged about it since .. sheez .. March (Everything’s better with a face frame even the view from above). I’ve managed to get my knee functioning well again .. without surgery but with lots of PT. So I’m back in the saddle and had some time this weekend to work on the lift cabinet.
Top and shelves installed.
Another look at the top. Now you can see the box for the TV.
I used my jack plane to bevel the top.
Now, on to the drawers.
I’ll be using drawer glides for this drawer.
I was able to finish up my kerfing plane and actually resaw a board. After kerfing the board, I resawed the board with my panel saw .. which convinced my that I needed to build my frame saw. My plan is to build Shannon’s frame saw Semester 4 – Roubo Frame Saw.
Here are some of the photos of the plane:
Plane body with one coat of finish
The plane was a bit heavy so I removed bulk from the fence.

Kerf from the back side.
Kerfing end grain.
Man! I need bigger teeth!
Just as a reminder, this project is the kerfing plane project from the Unplugged WoodShop. Saw blade and nuts from Bad Axe Tool Works.
All my posts for this project can be found on the right hand side under the Kerfing Plane Project Page.
Shaping done and one coat of finish. Had some time over vacation to finish up the shaping.
I’m about to start shaping my Kerfing Plane and wanted some ideas for pleasing shapes. Most of the photos below are from Tom’s site or the Bad Axe saw site (where I got to blade for my plane), More photos of my plane as I progress. But for now, here are some of Tom’s pictures.
I’ve making slow but steady progress on my Kerfing Plane. This is a project from the Unplugged Workshop book. I’ve got a nice wide piece of curly cherry to resaw and its too big for my band saw.
Flattening the blank for the plane.
Then I used my favorite saw handle to lay out the handle.
Cuttin’ out the shape.
Cutting the slot for the blade.
Adding a fence ..
and saw blade nuts ..
and finally the adjustment nuts.
