I finished my tool cabinet today it’s from wood magazine, worked out pretty well though I’ve learned somethings I will do different on my next cabinet based project. Most importantly the varnishing, I plan to varnish before glueing everything together. I have a really hard time varnishing these large cabinets once they are assembled just because they have to be sitting on the floor just for me to reach the inside center area.
I made a few mistakes but they’re all cosmetic things, nothing that prevents it from being an awesome tool cabinet. I used 2 coats of shelac to finish it, I would have liked to use more but it was such a pain to varnish this thing I decided 2 coats was good enough.
Now I need to build the shell of the tool chest that this will be mounted on top of.
