Hey All – thanks for looking.
This is a wood whisperer inspired tool cabinet – I believe they called it the “fescubby” on woodtalk.
I’ve been in my new house and new shop for about 1.5 years now and there is zero storage, so I thought i’d build this cabinet as a start. There was a little alcove by a window and this seemed to fit perfectly.
This project marks many firsts for me -
-first real project in my new shop
-first real cabinet type project i’ve ever built
-first time building drawers and using drawer slides
-first time using the domino
-biggest project i’ve build to date
I was really disappointed with the plywood I got for this – at $65CAD a sheet, I thought I was getting something of quality, but I was mistaken. The thin veneer had me burn through in a few places when trying to take off glue squeeze out or when flushing the solid wood trim. Good thing it’s a shop project! Unfortunately, I still have a big stack of it to be used to make some other cabinets for the shop. Oh well – live and learn.
