Fig. 1.

I’m glad to search out that modern woodworking editors are merely upholding an no less than century-old custom of cutlists/elements lists containing errors. (And – dare I say – readers haven’t modified a lot both!) The Woodworker and Artwork Metallic Woodworker, June 15, 1905 (once more, due to Buz Buzkirk for the outdated compilations!).


A Instrument Cabinet within the April 1902 problem.

Expensive Sir, – I ship herewith [a] photograph of [the] instrument cabinet comprised of the design printed in The Woodworker, April 1902. This model of cabinet fits my necessities very properly certainly, with a couple of alterations. I’ve made mine 30 ins. huge, not having room for a wider one. By putting the saws on the left-hand door, the upright division can come extra ahead, thereby growing the width of the shelf, and the straight slim division between the planes permits a bit of extra shelf house in entrance, as per Fig. 1. By this association the instrument racks come above and beneath the shelf, in order that it’s only obligatory to permit 1-1/8 ins. as an alternative of two ins. for the room taken up by the hammer deal with and noticed handles. In fixing the saws by a turn-button which inserts shut down on the deal with, it does away with the decrease half throughout the blade; additionally the instrument racks on brackets make a powerful neat job, though entailing extra work. As you will note I’ve put the nosing spherical the underside in addition to the highest. Is there any motive why this has been omitted? It appears to me reasonably a bonus, because it permits the doorways to swing away from any obstruction.

A Compact Instrument Cabinet, by G. E. Evans.

Within the listing of wooden required, given on the finish of the article in [the] April, 1902, problem, the three drawer bottoms and one door panel haven’t been counted, making in all about 7 ft. extra of wooden required.

Referring once more to the photograph, simply above the highest drawer is a specimen of the puzzle dovetail joint given in The Woodworker, Might, 1902, made in birch and black walnut.
