In this entry, I’ve made a beveled edge front for the tool chest, and made the tongue and groove boards for the back panel.
After I matched the angle to the front of the chest, I planed off the edge of the front board. This will allow the lid to sit flush all the way around.
I used my #45 to cut tongue and groove boards for the back of the chest.
The bottom board, I secured in place with two screws on the bottom of both sides, and three screws along the bottom edge. The top isn’t screwed in place, so it can move as it needs with expansion and contraction.
The subsequent boards are only screwed into place on the bottom of each side. This holds the previous board in place, while still allowing for movement.
The top board also has a bevel to match the lid as well.
Thanks for checking it out!
