This took a lot more effort than I ever imagined. The main thing that I learned was that when building the drawers you have to take in consideration of the width of the opening of the face frame not the walls. If I had to do it all over again I’d build the face frame first.

Joinery are dados, rabbets and biscuits.

I can’t wait until we can take a picture of our items and the computer can tally an inventory for us and remind us where we hid it.

But a good way to learn!

You may need a computer of some sort to tell you which drawer a item is in. lol…I build my shop cabniets and for a few weeks I had to open several drawer to find a hammer. Great looking and some countertop space to stack every thing, that was in the way where it was.

Thanks for the comments, hope have some good pics of my work bench soon.

exactly bugz, we need an inventory app for our phones. Take a picture and the ‘puter recognizes and tallies it for us. How many extras do we have because we don’t know we have it.

Also building a built in entertainment center with fish tank, no hardwoods…not sure it would be a wise investment for the neighborhood…and not sure I’m ready for that jump from ‘carpentry’ to fine wood working.

Have your say...
