So this tool caddy was our intro to casework. Even though its a tool caddy and will get banged up and stuff, we were supposed to treat it like fine furniture and make all the joints super perfect and stuff. Everything is pine, with the exception of the plugs and drawer pull which i made from left over scraps of walnut (crib board project) that I brought into school from home.
The drawer runs on slides glued and pin nailed to the gables in a dadoe milled out of the drawer side.
Drawer is box joint (we made a jig before we were allowed to start the tool caddy) construction and as far as I know i was the only person to actually screw my drawer knob from the back. Two people just glued then on, everyone else has just left the drawer face blank and you can grab from underneath.
The last picture is the current use of this tool caddy. A place for my speakers and some drumming stuff. Now… i just need to make a low little chair so that i can sit sort of normal and not have my back hunched over while sitting on a foot rest..
