« Part 5: The top Part 6 of Greene and Greene tool chest. series Part 7: Top part 2: Ebony spline jig/top inlay »

Time for some skirting. I had two rounds of this. The first skirting I didn’t like the grain not to mention I messed the fitment up a little bit. I’m too anal with some details. I try for perfection as much as I can :/. Ah well! It’s all a learning process.

I used my 90 degree guide with a magnet to cut the joints. Works like a charm. Chisel out the waste. It was tedious getting them exactly right so they had no gaps.

I did end up with a gap at the back where the back skirt is glued to the back of the chest. Oh well. Lesson learned.

Looking very good! Gaps? Meh, not too much, and glue will fill. :-)

This is really looking good. It is a beauty, very practical, and will wonderful in your shop.

Thanks Gents!

Smitty- I’m getting better with what I allow as far as “Mess-ups” I don’t want to get too carried away but I’m starting to let the small things go :).

It’s all fun and I’ve learned a lot.

I’m going to use this for my joinery tools hopefully. Probably be a tool chest 2.0 later.

Have your say...
