I subscribe to the Wood Magazine weekly emails. Which once a week they make available a plan from a past magazine. I’m not sure which month/year this plan originally was published. But when I saw it in my email I had to have it.
I built mine out of oak ply and white oak door frame, drawers and bit racks.
I held true to the plan except for mounting the piece of acrylic. The plan called for the door frame to be grooved and the acrylic panel to be mounted permanently. I decided to use retaining strips (3rd pic); to facilitate replacing the panel if need be. I also went with pocket holes as opposed to mortise and tenon.
The last picture shows the joinery of one of the drawers which I bought a drawer lock router bit to make. That’s a very cool router bit to have and creates a strong joint.
I finished it with a heavy coat of shellac and two thick sprayed on coats of satin poly.
I just love this thing. No more looking through the drawers for bits or having to pull out those tiny little boxes that hold the bits so close I always nick my knuckles pulling them out.
Thanks for looking.
