It isn’t that quick, or maybe it’s just me. I’ll be making tool holders for a while and a I just couldn’t wait to post the finished cabinet
Got the plans from FWW. I modified them to make the case shallower so it would take too much air space over my bench. Even though it is downsized this thing is massive. I’m 6’2” and I have to tip toe to reach the top shelf. I’m going to need to make a step stool. It is not easy to get onto the wall either.
I used crappy birch ply (not Baltic) so i had to edge band everything since the ply’s had ugly pink glue. I’ll spring or the Baltic Birch next time, it will save time and cost about the same because you save money on the banding. I did use Baltic birch on the drawers though.
I used rare earth magnets or the door catches.
I used Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene for the drawer slides. Since the slides have to be fitted pretty tightly I was afraid of wood expansion locking my drawers shut. I had this stuff laying around and it worked out great.
It is finished with three coats of Minwax Wipe-on Poly and dark wax.
Hope you guys like it and that is serves as inspiration for someone else.
