    Garrett Hack Wall Cabinet - Again

    About a year and a half ago I got a Fine Woodworking Magazine email and built a proto type of a featured wall cabinet designed by Garrett Hack. That build was out of scrap and pallet parts . I more or less guessed at the dimensions by watching the video and listening to some of the things Garrett said. I decided to finally get around to building one out of something better.

    I had a pecan board up in the rack that I picked up one day since it looked interesting. I may need to go after another board or get creative as I pretty well burned it up making the carcass parts.

    I used some soft maple for the back panels and the shelves. I got as far as a carcass dry fit tonight. I'm not in any hurry as I plan for this to be the little project I go to between sessions on a chest of drawers have been working on. Its more fun to work on something than to just sit and watch glue dry sometimes.

    Looks great!

    Don't you just LOVE that Lee Valley shoulder plane

    I really enjoyed the way Garrett puts that unit together, not a lot of precise measurements, lots of measuring off existing parts, to get a size

    Cheers!

    The one made of scrap ended up as dad's small plane cabinet in his shop. This one may (if I can hang on to it) end up in my shop doing a similar duty.

    I do LOVE that plane. In the video Garrett's original cabinet width came from a reasonable place to stop repeating a black and white patterned trim that he was going to use. That video really amplified my move towards determining part sizes off of the piece I am working on as opposed to strict measurements from a parts list

    That pecan looks really great in person. I saw it yesterday when Myrna and I were up at Glenn's.

    He showed me so much and tried to teach me so much that my poor old brain blew a gasket. And he gave his mom a beautiful three picture, picture frame.

    I had a wonderful day. I probably wore him out with my questions and "show me"s.

    Enjoy,
    Jim
