    Matt's Hand Tool Cabinet

    I must have been thinking about something else. Now that i think about it there was only ever small amounts of goo left over on the bottom of the stick. Good hockey tape can grip really well i remember the leather palms of my gloves never won the battle against it.

    Man i haven't taped a stick in a decade..... Never really liked how it got gooey over time. Do you have that problem?

    Megan agreed to the lobser feed. So that one should at least be easy. We've both expressed interest in seeing Niagra Falls and Canada is right there. I'd also love to make it to OPs neck of the woods. There are some many wonderful places to see in North America i don't get why people go else where before they see what we have to offer.

    Midcentury Modern TV Stand

    I mean no insult by it. Honestly the fact that so many people are "overweight" is a sign of how far humanity has come. It wasn't 200 years ago that being overweight was a sign of great wealth because it meant you could get a meal any time you pleased.

    Credenza to me is just another wood for a side board or server depending on your region. It also only reminds me of that thing Marc just made and while the craftsmanship of it is wonderful i HATE the design. I can only see a fat man with his belly hanging over his belt. I hear ya on the entertainment center. I'd probably call it a media console/cabinet but that still brings back memories of those awful overbearing pieces of furniture. I think a new name needs to be coined like Cabinet that sits under the TV and holds that outdated stuff you can't bear to part with . This was all tongue in cheek as i also made a TV stand where i wall mounted the TV above it. It's a common practice and a good one imo. Lets not go back to CRT TVs days and those overbearing cabinets that surrounded them.
  7. Oh that does seem like a good woodpeckers product. As soon as i saw the shorter design i picked up what they were on to and agree. I wonder if this will make it less tipsy on the edge of a board? I do disagree with the marking always being less than an inch. For through tenons that sit proud I've marked in as far as 2.5" but still that wasn't even half of the capacity of my marking gauge but probably should have maxed it out.

    Jealous. I've never even been to a LV store. It's on my bucket list along with a lobster feed at Lie Nielsen.
  9. Even after you saw it you still have to clean up the cut. So you are goign to need a shooting board or something. If you have the device to clean up the cut you still need to practice making the cut. It's probably going to take some effort. As with anything difficult in life you aren't going to nail it the first try or maybe not even the 10th try. As far as all that about wood and seasoning you guitar people are crazy.... I don't get how there can be a perfect moisture content when the MC of wood depends on the humidity in it's environment. Does this mean the wood is junk if it gets transported out of it's perfect environment? How is it any different that all other QS maple? I read a double blind study about the famous Stradivarius violins and the professionals couldn't statistically identify them from the cheapest violin on the market. The pros did better than a common person but still weren't far from 50% in a 50/50 guess. *edit i don't mean the above as offense, I just feel like you need to learn to walk before you run. Jumping into some exotic guitar wood when nailing the technique is difficult seems bit like putting the cart in front of the horse. Thouhg i don't understand the whole seasoning and perfect MC thing ... how would they stop the MC form changing?
  10. Yeah i can't help but think of what Shannon Rodgers always says. Saw to the line and clean up with a plane. Ditch the guides get practice at sawing to a line and clean up the cut with a hand plane. We're talking about this guy right? If it were me I'd make a shooting board that hits that angle perfectly. The top angle is easy to clean up after with a block plane or what ever. I doubt this angle needs to be accurate to the fraction of a degree if it's 12.9 or 13.1 everything is going to be ok.

    I hate it when that happens. That is working on cars for me. I get everything planned out and then find another broken part or the replacement part is missing. Then the Autoparts store doesn't have it so i have to order it and wait 4 more days. I forgot you were talking about the cabbies so i guess making it removable so you can change it down the road doesn't work. I thought you were talking about the plane till. The first part of my suggestion stands though size it to the stuff you have and leave the extra for future stuff to be more flexible. The only kicker is if you decide you want a full set of molding planes.
  12. I was thinking some acme rod could be used as it would allow bushings for possibly longer smooth operation but if the threaded rod works it works. I must have bad expereice with threaded rod because it never seems smooth.
  13. @B. Brinkley That looks great!. I don't understand his continual use of threaded rod and urethane construction adhesive. He does strike me as the type that started using it because it was on hand from his construction background and kept using it to spite youtube commenters. I really should make something like this my router lift is dreadful, but it works so i keep using it.

    I hate it when that happens. Another mouth to feed, and sole to keep clean... I'd do dividers. I wouldn't really want to bang planes into each other. I know it's hard to see the future but for the planes i know will always be ther i'd size them a bit tighter and have them in a dedicated spot. For those that you will fill with strays maybe be a bit more liberal with sizing. If your really worried about it do all of this on something that is removable so in the future if you messed up you can remove it and redo it. It's a tool cabinet i think screws that get hidden by a plane or plug or something is not out of place. Or fasten it on the backside or side or something.
  15. Could you transition to a 6" and then do a sweep 90? Either that or 5" schedule 80 pvc pipe is 4.76" ID.
