Wall Hung Tool Cabinet – episode 8

Paul uses a rebate to fit the panel into the grooved frame. He uses the rebate plane (see How to make a Rebate Plane) to cut the rebate as well as a saw and chisel. Then it’s time to fit the panel to the groove before gluing it up. Once dry, he removes the nubs and cleans up the frame.

    It’s not what we do, but how we do it.
    Thank you

    the day I work more accurate than Paul sellers (as he supposes in this video) will probably be the day after my lotto numbers come in (and that’s 45 million -one against) if this project would fail an exam where is the hope for any of us,

    Dang, you had to go and get a red knife..*heads to Amazon* 🙂

    • matonb on 14 January 2016 at 6:11 pm

      Yup, I noticed that too.

      I wonder, is it easier to find ?

      It’s actually worse than that–check out the new Chariot plane !!

      Hi guys,
      here’s the link to Paul’s Blog regarding the knife

      If there is anyone who hasn’t checked his blog recently, his latest entry’s are about the move of the whole school and family from North Wales to Oxfordshire in southern England.
      I’m guessing that’s why there has been no reply to questions so far this week.
      (I’m a little concerned for that panel, now that it doesn’t live in a climate controlled castle!!)

        North Wales (where it rains every day) vs the south end of the Costwolds–might be some shrinkage.

    Another great video – thanks Paul.

    A couple of questions:

    1. If the panel had ended up slightly proud of the frame would you plane and/or scrape it flush in place, or would you plane it separately and then scrape once glued?

    2. In terms of using a rebate plane across end grain, if you had a really wide panel (wider than the length of the saw) how would you approach it? Perhaps a knife wall without sawing then use the rebate plane?

    Paul, your attention to detail amazes me! Such beautiful mortise and tenon fits on the framed panel. I’m just now starting mine, and I hope I can get them right like yours.

    cause it’s a castle. Love it…

  9. knightlylad on 14 January 2016 at 8:50 pm

    Thank you for the lesson.

    I know this shelf is designed to incorporate new woodworking techniques, but other than that I see no reason for the over complication, since it will expand at the same rate as the case sides. Or did I miss something? This seems like a LOT of work compared to planing a simple board.

    • recky on 17 January 2016 at 4:43 pm

      Chris, The shelf is made in very nearly the same way as the doors are, I suppose most of the detail for the doors are in this post, saves going through it all twice

    That’s heartening! I at least have that muscle you mentioned at 3:08.

  12. woodwurm on 28 August 2016 at 12:52 pm

    Dear Paul,

    Would you betray the brand and No. of that wonderful chariot plane, that you used in this episode?


  13. dicksters on 31 March 2017 at 5:28 am

    Does anyone understand the issue that would have Paul failing an exam? And imagine the teacher who would fail him…

  14. Jose Sosa on 6 October 2017 at 2:35 am

    Great work Paul you have so much integrity in your work I love it.

  15. Flemming Aaberg on 28 September 2020 at 10:56 am

    At around 35.00 Paul uses a couple of different planes to put a small chamfer on the inside. I don’t have either of these small planes but instead use a spokeshave one handed and just slide it along the edge.
