Nice work Oliver - Agree with CeeJay that a small piece of veneer or just thin ply wood inside the hinge pocket with glue and clamping would conceal that issue.

Quite a nice change.  And the ply seems to have some nice figure in it to add to the quality of your work!

Thanks for the detailed photos!

Thank you Neil! Yes, I will definitely correct that little mishap as explained by CeeJay & you! :) I actually feel a bit stupid for not thinking of a solution like this.

Kind regards,
Oliver

Nice work Oliver!
Sorry about your very small mishap, they tend to happen - even to professionals  [wink]
As explained by others; some glue, additional pieces or wood dust mixed with glue makes it right.

I do often experience chips come loose, especially on ply, but also on solid wood. Cure is; find the chip that came off and glue it back on. It does not look great right away, but after sanding and finishing - most blemishes disappears completely. That’s the beauty of working with wood [smile]

I think I might have written my idea on another thread. It just seems to be appropriate here.

I had a teacher/mentor who came out with many observations.

A good mechanic is a man who can cover up any mistakes he makes.

Playing a bit of catch up in this thread.  Those pipes...yuck!  Love that plane, so handy, nice heft and fits in the palm just right.  The blowout on the door?  My best guess is the weight of the door cantilevered off an edge lifted that end of the door ever so slightly?  Whatever it was, it happens.  As was said above, thankfully wood is an easier medium to conceal what goes wrong.  Great job on the basement project!  Your patience is greater than mine.  Too many fiddly bits in this job, I would have jumped out a window before it was done. 

So what’s next on the project list?

Thank you very much, Raj!



Today it was about upgrading the basement workshop/ enhancing the usability of my work table.

I was introduced to this earlier this year on a German woodworking community forum. It's a Swiss company that makes quite some innovative products, among them a vise to attach to the front/face of a working table. But they also make hand planes and chisels with exchangeable carbide blades, aimed at tradespeople with a lot of "on site" work that can't set up, or don't want to, setup sharpening equipment. Personally, I think they lack a "soul", but they definitely serve a purpose. But the vise seemed to be a great product, especially after quite a few people I trust have had great results with it, over quite some time of actual use.

The RALI press evolution 1100 mm

https://rali-shop.com/vice/rali-press-evo-1100-mm.html  Please make sure you check out the demo video on the bottom of that site. :)

Packaged.



Scope of supply for the 1100 mm variant.





Drilling with help of the piloting/centering device. (Included with purchase.)



Connector.



Driving the T25 head screws. Bracket for easy installation and squaring it up visible on right side. (Included with purchase.)



Ready to use.









One word, ingenious. It's really a fantastic addition to the basement workshop/ enhancement of my work table.


Kind regards,
Oliver

That's an interesting piece of kit! Please keep us posted on your experiences with it. I am really curious to see how versatile and sturdy it proves to be in your workshop.

That’s very interesting Oliver. Can’t you just start a shop for exotic tools?  [big grin]

It reminds me of the old Zyliss 4in1 vice. I recently got hold of one of these in mint condition.

That's pretty slick Oliver.

It would be nice to have something like that on the front rail of an MFT/3.

It is! Seems like there's an opportunity for someone making a right-angle clamping accessory that uses F-clamps. Though, the low profile of this system is definitely part of the draw.

I'm wondering if that is the same company (Zyliss) that made the kitchen accessories? Do you happen to know that by chance?

Thanks for the positive discussion, everyone!

I will show it & it's possibilities from time to time, when I'm working with it.

According to wikipedia, it is.
