Been building this for months, slowly but surely. First time I have built flush inset drawers…hand cut half-blind dovetails as well.

Door, drawers and face frame are all pine, with the same cabinet-grade plywood as from my prior post. This is the style/finish that I’ll be using throughout the shop as I redo all my cabinets to replace the old kitchen cabinets I have been using.

Not much more to say, I’ll be filling this up with hand tools as time goes on.

I like the snug fit of the inset drawers. I can relate to your taking such great care on your shop. Some people may say that all of that beautiful work should be in the dining room. My feeling is that the shop, my sanctuary, is worth every penny and every minute.

I am completely in agreement with you, Paul… With one exception, and that is cost! I save the expensive hardwoods for the furniture, and stick with stock grade pine for my practice pieces, i.e. shop furniture!

I really like this cabinet design : )
How about a picture with the doors open ?

You will not need to say more.

Best thoughts,

Ryno,

I couldn’t agree more. Instead of pine I’m using Poplar though. The drawer-work turned out very nicely!
