Hand Tool Wall Cabinet #12 Armoire murale pour outils manuels

Je commence à installer les lattes derrière la grande armoire.

J’ai pris soin de tracer afin d’éviter les vis qui fixent le panneau arrière au caisson. Ma jauge de traçage maison m’est ici encore très utile.

I’m getting to install the cleats behind the large cabinet.

I took care of marking the screw locations to bypass the ones that secure the back panel to the casing. Here, once again, my homemade measuring gauge is quite handy.

Après avoir percé et fraisé, j’étends un filet de colle, tel que montré, et je frotte la latte sur l’armoire pour étendre la colle. Cette technique est très efficace et les pièces adhérent instantanément.

After I drilled and countersunk, I run a bead of glue, as shown, and I rub the cleat on the cabinet to evenly spread the glue. This method is very effective and the pieces stick instantly.

Vous comprendrez que je dois également enfoncer des vis dans le panneau arrière.

You will understand that I must also drive screws in the back panel.

Pour enlever l’excès de colle dans le fond du biseau, j’ai aminci cette languette à ma ponceuse à disque et je la recouvre d’un chiffon pour nettoyer à fond. Une fois complété, j’ai balayé la languette à sec  pour étendre les restes potentiels de colle.

To remove the excess glue at the bottom of the bevel, I feathered out a stick at my disc sander and I wrap it with a rag to clean thoroughly. Once done, I wiped the stick dry to spread the potential remaining glue.

Tel qu’indiqué par la flèche, la latte inférieure prend son support principale dans les côtés, raison pour laquelle j’ai pris soin de bien centrer les vis.

Notez les serre-joints à chaque extrémité de mon gabarit.

As shown by the arrow, the lower cleat takes its main support into the sides, reason why I took the precaution to adequately center the screws.

Notice the clamps at both ends of my jig.

J’applique le même processus de collage.

I apply the same gluing process.

Après avoir vissé les extrémités de la latte, j’ai repris ma mauvaise habitude de vérifier l’alignement avec mon gabarit. Cette fois-ci cette mauvaise habitude s’est avérée une bonne habitude ! En vissant, la latte s’était déplacée comme vous pouvez le constater.

After screwing the ends of the cleat, I returned to my bad habit of checking the alignment with my jig. This time this bad habit has changed to a good habit ! While screwing, the cleat shifted as you can notice.

Pendant que la colle sèche, je procède avec les deux petites armoires.

While the glue dries, I proceed with the two smaller cabinets.

À bien y penser, les petites armoires étant plus légères, je peux incontestablement fixer les portes aux armoires maintenant, ce que sera beaucoup plus facile sur l’établi.

Notez que j’ai supporté mes pièces avec celles de la deuxième armoire pour bien les aligner.

After a second thought, the small cabinets being lighter, I unquestionably can attach the doors to the cabinets now, what will be much easier on the workbench.

Notice that I propped up the parts using the ones from the other cabinet, so they will align.

Pour la dernière, je dois inventer un support.

For the last one, I must devise a support.

Eureka ! Les mousses de l’empaquetage du nouveau déshumidificateur sont parfaites et douces.

Je garde tout, et un jour tout est utile !

Eureka ! The rigid foam from the new dehumidifier package are perfect, and soft.

I keep everything, and one day everything is useful !

La grande est au mur. Par chance que les portes sont détachées.

The large one is on the wall. Luckily the doors are off.

À bien y penser (une fois encore), je peux au moins installer les charnières aux portes sur l’établi.

After a second thought (once again), I can at least install the hinges to the doors on the workbench.

Ce vieux collage rectiligne, bien serré sous la grande armoire, supporte facilement les portes, installée une à une, pendant que je visse la deuxième moitié des charnières.

This old straight glue-up, well secured under the large cabinet, easily supports the doors, installed one by one, while I screw the second half of the hinges.

Voici donc un premier coup d’œil.

Here is a first glance.

Finition à l’huile… de lin (mauvaise photo). Ce chiffon résiné, acheté il y a environ 30 ans, est encore intacte dans son emballage scellée et excellent pour enlever la fine poussière avant la finition, en autant que c’est une finition à l’huile !

Linseed… oil (wrong photo). This tack cloth, purchased about 30 years ago, is still intact in its sealed package and excellent to remove the fine dust before finishing, as long it is an oil finish !

J’aime la profondeur que procure la finition à l’huile.

I like the depth provided by the oil finish.

Je suis entièrement satisfait.

Même le contreplaqué de merisier russe des champs intérieurs des portes de la grande armoire est attrayant !

Even the large cabinet Baltic birch plywood inner edges are attractive !

Voici un aperçu de quelques outils qui, un jour, y seront rangés, peut-être avant 2016 !

Here is part of the tools that, some day, will be stored in them, perhaps before 2016 !

Je tiens à remercier chaleureusement tous ceux qui ont laisser hier tous ces généreux commentaires après la parution des photos des armoires. Je constate que vous appréciez les belles choses autant que moi ! LOL

S’il vous plait, prenez ceci comme réponse personnelle à vous mots gentils et vos compliments parce que revenir à chacun prendrait un certain temps tellement vous avez été généreux.

Dans quelques jours j’ajouterai un article supplémentaire pour vous montrer le produit final, définitivement installé et fini, probablement avec quelques couches de polyuréthane ou de gomme laque appliquées au chiffon.

I’d like to deeply thank all the ones who yesterday left all those generous comments after I posted photos of my cabinets. I notice that you like nice things as much as I do ! LOL

Please take this as personal answer to your kind words and compliments since it would take a while to get back to each of you since you were so generous.

In couple of days I will add a supplementary article showing you the final product, accurately set up and finished, perhaps with few coats of wipe-on poly or orange shellac.

    Salut Serge,

    The cabinets look great! Those are certainly very fine cabinets and I think they’d be equally suited to your living space.

    Great idea of using the straight support to help support the doors for the big cabinet while you fastened the hinges. I was wondering how you were going to tackle that problem.

    What’s the next project?

    Chris

    • Thanks Chris. I’m glad I came up with such a simple solution to support the doors. Sometimes is so simple !

      My next project should be an artist easel. At the restaurant across the street, where I dine each Friday, they drop their framed blackboard menu on a stool sitting on the terrace. Believing an easel is more appropriate in such environment, I decided to try to have fun building one, using pallet wood, that I will offer as a gift. If I’m lucky, I may get a free lunch ! 🙂

        Great idea, Serge. Is this the Italian restaurant?

        Chris

        • Salut Chris,

          Yes it is the Italian restaurant. When I wrote the reply I was wondering if you would remember. You have a good memory ! The Italian restaurant was quite pricy and didn’t run that much. So they decided to make it a ‘Bring you own wine’, but their costly reputation was done, so they closed. Few months ago someone else started a new business based on healthy foods only, still the ‘Bring you own wine’ type, and it became very popular. In fact, this is where the library invited for dinner all 35 volunteers. They paid the bill with the money they raise with the training courses I provide, well, for 14 years now.

    Il n’y a qu’un mot pour qualifier cet ouvrage : magnifique!

    un mot BRAVO ☺

    The baltic birch with just some oil on it looks fantastic. It’s worth the extra cost when you go to all the work you did to make furniture grade cabinets. I bought some of this plywood back in the winter but I haven’t been able to use it yet but now I’m very anxious after looking at yours.

    Regarding that easel you are going to make, it just might add enough elegance to the place to allowed them to increase their prices 🙂

  5. Eric R says:

    These wonderful cabinets would make any shop better !
    I think your talent knows no bounds !

    As Mark states, your expertly crafted Easel will no doubt allow an increase in prices at that restaurant !

    Thank you Serge.

    • Thank you Eric. I can’t wait to see the owner’s reaction when I will offer him the easel, and for free ! He has no idea of what I’m doing for his restaurant.

      I don’t see myself as talented, but gifted for having such hobby to develop and share. Mostly confined at home because of illness, I wonder how I would occupy my days without this hobby and my basement shop.

      Thank you my friend.
