Wall Hung Tool Cabinet

159 days ago by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 0 comments »

Made this tool chest to hold some of my hand tools and marking tools. This was very simple and made from 1 sheet of 3/4” plywood. Check out the video here. As always, please share and subscribe!

Tool Cabinet Build #11: Tonguing and Grooving The Night Away...

238 days ago by Airframer | 4 comments »

So I finally finished cleaning up and installing the missing parts for my #45 and couldn’t resist putting it to work. First lets catch up.. Last installment I had finished 1 of 2 rabbets for the top and bottom of the back. I finished up the second one last night. This one didn’t go as smoothly as the last and I really cannot pin point the issue but my #78 just would not cooperate. I ended up chopping the whole thing with a chisel. Remind me not to do that again lol. I...

Tool Cabinet Build #10: Tambour and Rabbets... Oh My..

240 days ago by Airframer | 10 comments »

The glue is dry on the canvas backs for the tambour doors. Pulled them out of the jig yesterday and broke them all free of each other and to my surprise they curl up very nicely! Then I got started on a spot that has cause me some anxiety for some reason… the back of the cabinet.. After weighing the options I have decided on T&G with rabbets on the top and bottom and grooves along the sides with a center “Key Stone” slat with tongues on both sides ...

Tool Cabinet Build #9: Tambour Part 3..

241 days ago by Airframer | 9 comments »

I was able to squeak in a few hours of shop time today so I finally got back to work on the tool cabinet build. First thing was to plug the back end of the sliding dovetails so i can get the back ready for some T&G slats. With that done I wanted to knock out another part that I had been putting off which was gluing up the canvas onto the tambour doors. I had been putting this off because it required a fixture to be built to hold everything square whi...

Tool Cabinet Build #7: Refocusing, Reorganizing and Sliding Dovetails..

290 days ago by Airframer | 8 comments »

I realized yesterday morning that I was getting way ahead of myself trying to make the saw till with the door guides before the case was assembled. I need to know the exact dimensions of the space it will occupy before I build it *doh! So I got re-organized and turned my focus on prepping the panels for assembly. First thing on that list was to knock out the grooves for the sliding dovetailed drawer cubbies. I asked my helper if he wanted to help me out but he was busy chilling on the...

Tool Cabinet Build #6: Tambour Part 2..

291 days ago by Airframer | 3 comments »

Today started out really productive but life intervened and production tapered off in the after noon so not as far along as I had hoped I would be by this time but might make it up tomorrow. I started the day out with some coffee and a no 3. After both doors worth of slats were flat I got my Grizzly round over plane and spent a leisurely time adding a round over to the face of all the slats lol. Added some painters tape to keep the doors together before glueup com...

Tool Cabinet Build #5: Tool Layout and Tambour Doors 1..

292 days ago by Airframer | 16 comments »

Had an unexpected early day at work today (which was nice after nearly 2 weeks of 15+ hour days) so I took advantage of it and started laying out the tool storage preliminary plan. Here is the rough idea.. From the front minus doors.. Behind the plane till and tool storage will be a secondary wall that separates the planes and tools from a pair of saw tills hidden in the back wall. And a quick mock-up to see it in scale.. the saws on the front will be in the back in their ...

Tool Cabinet Build #4: 3 down 1 gluing plus a Bonus Handtool Tip of The Day...

296 days ago by Airframer | 8 comments »

Over the last couple of days before and after work I have had an assembly line of sorts going on in the shop for the glue up of the side, top and bottom panels of the cabinet case. I am up to 3 done and one more in clamps as we speak. As each one came out of the clamps and a new one went in I went about cleaning up and flattening the faces with a myriad of hand planes and my scraper. I purposely made each panel slightly oversized just in case I needed to rip a glue joint and re-joi...

Tool Cabinet Build #3: Makin' Sawdust Finally...

297 days ago by Airframer | 9 comments »

I spent the weekend cleaning up the mess left from my workbench build and this evening I got started on the actual building of the cabinet :D I have only managed one panel but really only spent an hour or so working on it. First thing to do was to find just the “right” pieces for the sides. I have become quite smitten with the baby poop green grain patterns in this poplar and decided to showcase this instead of trying to hide it. I grabbed a random assortment from the pi...

Tool Cabinet Build #2: Design Solidified Finally...

299 days ago by Airframer | 10 comments »

This morning before work I finally got a plan together for this cabinet. It hits all the design criteria I had laid out and more so I think it’s a go on the build now. Here is my highly technical “sketch up” of the cabinet :D This is a head on view. The bottom cabinet with drawers on it will reside between the legs and can be un attached and rolled elsewhere in the shop if needed. This will hold mostly consumables (sandpaper, glue up supplies etc) and my sharpen...
