I received a set of Stanley 750 chisels from my wife for my birthday months ago and decided that they and my planes needed a place that was easy to get to and easy on the eye.
Pictures are worth more than a thousand words.
I started with the plane till so I could get a general idea of the size of the cabinet.
Then using No3 (third grade cherry) boards planed down to 820 thou I edge joined using biscuits narrow boards to get up to over 9 1/2” wide, after joining the boards I planed the joined boards down to 752 thou.
Using my Keller DT jig and not cutting the last pins and tails I prepared myself to try mitered dovetails for the first time.
I took full advantage of the great Lowes Hardware, Bessey clamp “giveaway” , and here is my collection in use.
Then the door frames.
More mock ups to check if the whole thing will fit on my wall, dang! When I fold back the doors they won’t clear the parts bin on the right, I will have to space the whole thing off the wall by 1/4”. Live and learn!
Using some 1/2” Baltic birch ply off cuts I pieced to-gether the back board using No20 biscuits @ 5” centers. Then I fastened the slightly oversized back to the case with screws and flush trimmed the ply to the case.
