I am back in the shop, after taking care of some outdoor jobs like re-sealing the entire deck, opening the swimming pool (finally!), and helping with transportation to Swim Team practice for three of our granddaughters.
This time I am helping our son-in-law make a face frame and doors for a built-in cabinet he created in the bathroom. The frame needed just a tiny bit of touch-up at the top one edge to fit the opening in the wall. This was a job for my shop-made, Krenov-inspired smoothing hand plane and good, steady holding of the frame on the bench.
To get the job done I wanted to make sure the frame did not move as I hand planed the edge to get a perfect fit. It turned out this was the first time I finally used the support system at the far right of the workbench:
I remembered the right workbench leg has a set of five rectangular holes that accept a wooden scrap, just for the purpose of assisting with workholding. It worked perfectly!
