I had and the plastic piece busted off.

The PEC double squares are the ones you want to look for at Harry Epsteins.  The PEC's don't have any plastic on them and where the one in you picture is black, the PECs are Blu or Blue-Gray.  I have 4 of the PEC's and they are solid, three of the four inch and one six inch.

Thanks I will go take a look at those!

Here is the rest of the update ... 

test fit .. overall went well ... minus the dang 1/16 gap on the hinge side or so ... 7/8 from edge on the Blum manual seems like it should have been 15/16 or 1” or something. Otherwise I am missing something else ?‍♂️.... I’ll get some pics of that once I reinstall them after breakfast

here the doors are getting some finish.

cant be too mad though learning lots through this and only the 2nd time I’ve actually made cabinet doors and outside the gap the other stuff came out pretty good.

Figured out my issue with the door ... even the though hinges said full overlay, they are actually inset hinges. Gotta love Amazons seller descriptions. Now debating on making them inset so I dont need to order more hinges at the moment. 

these are what I ordered ... however looking at the pictures in there, they show inset ?

Here they are installed ... for now

Also, the wife helped with organization as well in the shop today to get a lot of things put up in the cabinets .. power cords hung op out of the way next to the sink and found a nice spot for hearing protection for me and the boy

Great progress.

Find the hanger for your fire extinguisher and mount it in an unobstructed area, in a path of egress. 

Thanks!
 

Ya I was just getting it out of the floor there to clean up. Need to find a hanger for it the first one broke. I do have one mounted by my pencil sharpener on the back patio door though.

While laying out the spots for my holes and marking the cabinets as well I was tightening up the double 90 6" ruler I had and the plastic piece busted off. IT was one of those harry epsteins or whatever the site is with the blemished tools. So that was annoying as I really did like it and worked great for the 2 years or so I have had it.

I have two of these squares by far my favorite layout tool. I got mine from HE also they are listed as PEC on the website. The blades are not marked PEC like my blue 6” square is. The 4” is so much easier to handle an use. 
 

edit. I lied mine are marked PEC on the blade the handle is black but the spring lock is all metal. Had to run downstairs an check after I wrote this.

Don’t muscle down on the new ones! 

Lol!! Where’s the fun in that! 
 

Up next in the shop I am thinking 2 shelf units on the counter top ... not sure what all I should store there minus smaller things. gonna add a spot for sand paper and screws and stuff. Not sure what else I should be looking to put or store up here.

I have a few smaller shelves in this location in my shop but, they're pretty much build for specific items..  I know I showed that stuff in one of the videos but, I don't recall which one..  

There's an angled shelf for the block sanders and 2 other shelves for video stuff and one for the glue bottle..

for whatever reason I got the urge to try and use sketchup, no idea why, but figured why not since I am at home and my main computer is looking at me in the face and its a real slow day at work.

got the very basic drawn up in there though, which helped me figure out how to use some basic features in there and it was terrible. Still have some issues I am trying to work through though that I dont hit in old school CAD.

So I was thinking left side would be storage for my Milwaukee install drill then the bottom and maybe some of the middle row would be storage bins for screws and random things like below. Top row, who knows, but more storage for something ... Overall pretty basic, but I think it would get with storing a lot of the random small things laying around.

This is where I take the items that I want stored in this location and put them all on the same table.  When the actual items are in front of you, it's easier to decide how the organization of those items will actually happen.

I'll often use blue tape on a large surface to lay things out which ultimately gives you the size, configurations, and dimensions of what you need to build.  It ensures that what you want to store in a particular location will actually fit correctly.  Additionally, blue tape comes in a 3/4" wide roll so, works pretty well for identifying where the lumber pieces will actually be and identify any joinery issues that you might of missed..

Those bins are cool but, if a bunch of mismatched stuff is tossed in the same bin then, you're in the same organization boat you were before, just a smaller pile.

Nice job with the Sketchup!

I got about 5 or 6 of those little bins. The way I use them is if I’m assembling something or disassembling. I will just sit them on the bench beside as I’m working on it. To put it in a example hinges I’ll unpack them an dump the screws in one container the hinge mechanism in another an covers in another that way it’s all together. I keep one or two for when I’m refurbishing some old tools then can just pour vinegar an salt in the container an come back the next day an polish them up.

Drawing out with blue tape and their different sizes is a great idea! 
 

for the most part, the bottom will be filled with all my different screws with different lengths. 
 

thanks. I’m kinda liking sketchup just need to play with it more. I was using the browser version of it. Is that what you use?

Some very good uses for these! Will definitely have to keep that in mind.

While the glue dries on my other coffee table project (new journal coming for that one) I figured it was time I could make some quick updates. I needed to get the cabinets inset, as that is what the hingers are even though they sold them under an overlay name ... all good just a couple trips to the table saw and my trusty new panel sled ?

1156427303_PhotoNov18115401AM.thumb.jpg.9d31f96981ffb22ddd98b08ded32b83d.jpg

I needed 28 1/2 ... I think the sled is good to go! 

1683745221_PhotoNov18115355AM.thumb.jpg.49b9b801e801a453c462251994dba3d5.jpg

I only got to 1 door before lunch time, still need to work on fitting the door a little more but it is in there and looks way better ... well it will once adjusted to the reveals needed.

Next I need to figure out some pulls ... I am thinking make my own to keep the look. Not sure I want to just toss 4 cheap pulls/knobs on the doors.

Think I figured out what I wanted for at least one of the side middle cabinets ... Should hold my Milwaukee drill and its attachments, 6 containers, mainly for screws and then a row of sandpaper boxes.

Also, added another shelf in the upper cabinets to help out with storage. Doors will be coming sometime soonish I hope. I think after my coffee table build I will wrap those up. Also, all the doors are now inset, just need pulls on them too.

Cutting out the top .. man melamine and MDF beat me up today. Such a whipping flipping those around in small spaces.

Got the panels installed with just a minor inset for most likely smaller clamps on this side.

panels installed .. next up is to goget my 2x8 and wrap the top and then wrap bottom as well, just wanted to do it all together so I figured that was a good stopping point. Pocket screws for the bottom.
