It’s a cabinet!

I managed to get the sides all glued up and fit together.  Of course, there was a lot of fitting and fiddling necessary to get a solidly square case but its done.  Once again, my bench and its holding options come through.

Now that the internal dados are also complete, I can start making the internal frame supports.

    Looks great.

    What is the tape for on the inside?

    So you use your jointer gauge frequently?
    It was the first vintage tool I purchased, thank you Mr. Leach, but I have only used it twice in about a year.

      Tape is to remind me which side is inside .. so I don’t make a stupid mistake. Green for one side and blue for the other.

      I actually use my jointer gauge (didn’t remember that was the name) quite a bit. The name reminder will hopefully help anyone looking for that item as well. I found one easily on ebay when I used the correct name.

      I bet Mr. Leach has more to sell too.

    Looking really good Marilyn! Did the Jack Rabbet work out well for the raised panels?

    I picked up a dedicated panel raiser a while back on ebay, but I’m not happy with it. It’s a wood plane they used to sell through garret wade or somewhere, and the wedge doesn’t hold the blade. The mouth is too wide too, and there isn’t a nicker.

      Yes, the jack rabbet worked very well. It’s a lot less fiddly than the skewed rabbet plane and its length makes it easy to keep on track. I need to add a wooden fence and it would work even better. The 1/4″ panel edge tended to get trapped in the space between the bottom of the plane and the top of the fence. An additional wooden fence would prevent that.

      I’m surprised to hear about that the same plane sold via garret wade would perform so poorly. I looked hard at those before I bought the Veritas. I’m glad I didn’t buy it.
