« Part 4: dados and main carcass assembly Part 5 of Dutch Tool Chest series Part 6: Tongin' and a Groovin' »

Broke out the eggbeater drill, brace with countersink bit, and a screw driver. Marked out my holes with combo square and awl. Drove in some #10 1 1/4 slotted screws by hand, ended up with a blister. .

4 per side per shelf, overkill i believe, planned on only 3 but apparently my subconscious kicked in and made me do 4.

they are all clocked inline with the grain for you ocd individuals (wish i had some Citric acid to remove the zinc plating) I shoulda went with my first idea and countersunk with a bit that i could put a plug in.

So I crosscut the upper front (bra), to width, ripped to rough height with my duo of D8s. Then quick clamped it up in place, marked out the 30 degree bevel continuing it off the sides bevel.

Then clamped it in vice and worked it down with grandpas #5 and smoothed out final with my T12 5.5. Didnt get picture of the bottom front (underdroopers) but same deal minus the beveling.

Installed with a bit of glue and some 1 1/4 cut nails, set about 3/16 below surface.

thats it for this installment, next part, tongin’ and a groovin’ and a back.

Lot of work…looks great!
I like the base that the chest is sitting on in the next to last photo.
Thinking of something similar for my chest.

The “base”is actually my saw bench, but will be building a base for it… though will be slightly shorter..

Ah, now I see, Justin.
Still no saw bench in my shop…so I don’t recognize them easily.
