Some free hand doweling on the mortiser using the shop made doweling jig.
My dad gave me these pincer pliers years ago. They work great for pulling the pins that hold the jig in place.
Fresh off the drill press. I typically make a jig for each butt joint, so in this case 4 jigs. This helps keep the mating dowel holes consistent for each joint, and also spreads out the wear and tear of the jig holes.
Stitching it up, dry fit.
Tapered cauls for the glue up. To apply pressure in places where no clamp can go.
I re-used one of the old drawers. It was an nk drawer which was obviously fit to the previous cabinet. I oversized the drawer opening height & width by a couple hairs, then I made up some 1/16 veneers and laminated them onto the drawer rails, then re-fit the drawer.
Ready for a stiff pour. And while we're getting jacked up. I picked up a Mazzer Mini on craigslist about a year ago. It goes front & centre in the kitchen, no cabinet modifications necessary. Built like a tank.
