    Hello,

    I’ve started a new project: a small cabinet for the kitchen.

    I’ve never made a cabinet before, so this project gives me the opportunity to learn and test new techniques and – I hope – to acquire some skill in furniture making.

    [ Maybe it would be more correct to say that this project is an error-prone experiment I’d like to share with you… 🙂 ]

    Image #1: a very “minimalistic” wireframe of the cabinet.

    Images #2, #3: front and rear frames.

    Image #4: chopping mortises; I used two guides to tightly hold the piece in the vise jaws.

    Have a nice day!

    Hi Salko, thank you!

    Actually the smoothing plane is a DICK #4 smoothing plane: http://www.mehr-als-werkzeug.de/category/DICK-Hobel-3581_3593.htm
    It works very well and the price is affordable.
    LN tools are still a dream for me…

    I’ve never heard of Dick planes (Dictum). I looked them up, seems they might be a good option for our European friends here on Masterclasses. They’re based on the Bedrock, like LN planes, but a lot cheaper.

    How’s the fit and finish of those planes?
