With the new set of moulding planes (hollows, rounds, side bead), I needed a place to store them that would work well with my normal work flow and as I learn how to use them after a bit of rehab work on the planes.
I decided to go with a simple case which will have an overhead door. I will have a separator inside the case to keep the side beads separate from the hollows and rounds thus giving both a way to stay upright. The sides, top and bottom of the case will be joined with dovetails.
I am going to try something new with my dovetails since I've gotten more comfortable with them. I'm going to make the pins rather small - inspired by seeing Frank Strazza of Heritage School of Woodworking create dovetails will almost whisper thin pins. I'm also getting a chance to use my new Badaxe dovetail saw.
While working on the cabinet, my neighbor and friend, Judy and her daughter Lizzie, came over to sing and wish me happy birthday. It's not everyday we get to party in our workshops! By the way, the cupcakes were awesome and I've already eaten way too many.
