Week in Review – August 13-20
This week, Nancy Hiller demonstrated her simple strategy for installing Blum Tandem slides – one for setting the depth and one for setting the height of the slide in the cabinet box. Her process was developed over years of using jigs that went out of date with slide design revisions. It’s simple and effective!
We set inventory-clearing prices on a few great titles – I have personally enjoyed using Hand Tool Fundamentals over the last couple of months in the Pop Wood office. Also, be sure to check out Christopher Schwarz’s new posts on his dugout chair.
Finally, make sure you leave a comment on Scott’s book giveaway post for your chance to win a copy of Homemade Workshop by James Hamilton.
Roy Underhill folding himself into Christopher Schwarz's "Anarchist's Tool Chest." We've a video on how to make this chest – it holds quite a bit (absent a body)! Search "traditional english" at shopwoodworking.com. But do read the ATC book from @lostartpress. Sure, I built the chest, but it's the philosophy & inspiration in Chris's book that will stick with me long after I'm too old to shuffle out to the shop. #toolstorage #workshop #toolchest #royunderhill #woodworking
"Dutch Tool Chest: This traditional traveling chest is faster and easier to build than a floor chest." By Christopher Schwarz/@lostartpress; Oct. 13 PWM. I know a lot of readers have built these – if you're one of them, please send me a photo(s) of your finished chest (to email@example.com) – I'd love to post a gallery! #popularwoodworking #toolchest #toolcabinet #toolstorage #workshop #woodworking #dutchtoolchest
