« Part 2: A break in progress Part 3 of Tool cabinet series Part 4: Getting it all together »

With purchase of the new tablesaw, I had to install a 240V outlet. I took the opportunity to add an additional 20 amp 120V outlet as well. This completed and the saw turned over, it was time to make some progress on the tool cabinet.

I have mounted the doors and all of the drawers at this point in time. I still need to fine tune the fit of the latches and the doors – the doors are a bit too tight to clear each other when opening. There are two trays which will mount behind the doors. I will be installing these trays and fitting the drawer fronts next.

I also seem to have an issue with the photos fitting in the space available on the blog page. Do I simply need to reduce the image size that I am saving?

Nice looking cabinet cut! As far as the picture size you should set them to be 640×480 so they won’t be cut off. If you are using photobucket you can re size them right on the website regardless of the size you uploaded.

Coming along nicely. I’m watching every move so I can do one next.

This is really looking good – is this in real time?

Cut – this is shaping up into one fine tool cabinet!

-- I've cut that board three times and it's still too short!

Thanks for all the positive feed back! I am enjoying myself on this project and am pleased with how things are going. I will keep posting photos as things progress.
