More Some Assembly Required..

I am building a couple of tool cabinets. With my experience with the last ones I want to build ones that use dado's and rabbets to fit the peg board. That way I don't have to use molding on the exposed edges and it gives more surface area for the buck. I will have to use birch edge banding and I bought a cheap iron for that. Routing all those little slots requires a router table so the project of the day was:

Always a challenge. The accompanying manual appeared to be for a similar, but not exactly the same unit. Of course it was written in a language that only approximated English. Jo-Ann read the instructions,( several times) I fudged the parts that seem to go here and here, we tightened a lot of 8mm nuts, and voila a cup of tea later:

Getting the thing adjusted took some head scratching but we were able to make a few slots that fit the pegboard perfectly. Construction continues.

It didn't freeze last night. As a matter of fact we were awoken by the sound of rain on the roof. A sure sign that mud season is upon us. We had a bit of Snog this morning which, as you can imagine, is a mix of snow and fog. But nothing stuck and it's clear all the way to the valley floor.

My cupboards are joined using rabets. Or was that dado's? Hmmm I remember the words, just on the application
