See? Tool use going on:
Clamps count, don't they? But wait, there's more. Thus:
Comments along the lines that all those saws don't entirely back up the non-collector stance are not required...
Got to this point and wondered how best to support the handles of the upper tier. Dowel seemed most space-efficient, but how to stop it being dangerously under-supported and generally waving in the breeze? A bracket, obviously. For a moment I flirted with the thought of getting out the scrollsaw, until it dawned on me what I usually use the scrollsaw for and what I had (literally) kicking about on the workshop floor. So a little judicious sawin' an' flattenin', a little work with a gouge to recieve the dowel (actually a bit of defunct cricket stump for the benefit of its patina), glue, coupla brads (put in with a "hammer" and "nail set" - remember those?) and we have a bracket.
A small wander into whimsy that appeals to me. Don't worry, handle fans, the other side's got a nasty split right through a bolt hole and it's a generally unlovely handle all round. Anyway, mere hours later, after further workshop upheaval and a workbench now so covered in dispossessed clutter that I'll be lucky to see its surface again before Easter:
Rather less in the way of spare slots than I'd hoped... And frankly it doesn't do the Wenzloff's luscious lines any favours either; I may well find a home for that in the general, over-the-bench, hand tool cabinet wot I haven't made yet. However, despite it's less-than-beauty, it is at least functional (okay, so the coping saws etc need to be properly homed, but it's close). It's also door-less. So kiddies, do I:
a) Leave it sans door
b) Make a pair of narrower doors
c) Make one large door, hinged on one side as is common practice
d) Make one large door and hinge it from the top so it pulls up to open
The last one is the Old Man's favoured option. It'd definitely be different...
