I picked up some more plywood tonight to make the doors for the cabinet. I’ve been buying “shop grade” birch ply, which, frankly, is junk. Lots of voids and it seems less stiff than I would have expected. I got a 5′ x 5′ sheet of real baltic birch ply today, for about the same cost as the 4′ x 8′ sheets of shop ply. It seems like it’s much nicer stuff. More plus, no voids so far.
I got my son to help me cut this up carefully. I cut both door faces and several 3″ wide strips for the edging — the doors are going to be 3″ deep. That will be plenty of room to hang all of my miscellaneous tools. That’s deep enough to hang my braces which I think are about the biggest (depth-wise).
I think I’m going to put this all together with biscuits. I dug out my biscuit joiner, which I’ve used exactly once before, 12 years ago. I’ll make some practice joints to make sure I have everything set up properly. I should be able to knock these out pretty quickly tomorrow. The end is in sight!
