Leopardwood tea box with ash dovetail drawers and dividers. Heavy metal pulls. Wenge accent piece on the bottom.
Great job with the continuous filming of the template shaping. Always refreshing to see the entire process and how long it takes.
Kevin, you need to improve your router dust collection.
Even better than an allen wrench would be a drill bit. They are perfectly sized and can act as a spacer or gauge block for dialing in bade or bit height.
I don't understand why you wouldn't cut the waste away with a coping saw and then chop to the scribe line? Seem like an awful lot of unnecessary chopping and wear and tear on the chisel edge.
I love the work of Garrett Hack. I am going to build something like his with lacewood for my son. OMG is that stuff hard and dense. And just for fun I am going to put a drawer on the side for no particular purpose! I am not sure how or what to use for inlay. The lacewood has an amazing grain pattern. Perhaps an ebony and holly strip in morse code like Garrett has done in the past. What a great idea for the magazine.
I'm not buying the single runner. My suspicion is the sled will be very hard to keep square to the blade with only one runner. For the cheap parts I think two sleds is a better idea. You can refresh the surface with 1/8" hardboard or 1/4" ply any time the you want to have zero clearance. And this allows any angle as well as dado stacks. The only limit is the blade height must be greater than the width of the stock plus the sled bed and the material used to refresh the sled surface.
No calipers to ensure a proper fit???
Michael now I know why I didn't see the router plane or a space for one in your tool cabinet video series. I'm almost done with the sides of the case. I need to find a spot for both the 71 and 271 router planes...
I just started building this cabinet for my shop. I too have a fair amount of hand-planes. I was curious to know where you stored your router planes? I own both the small and large versions.
On a side note do you own/use plow and rabbet planes?
Who knew young Lex Luthor was a woodworker???
