Hello Jocks!!! well I sanded down the fingers and got the drawer till in the chest.The dimensions of the chest are
21 3/4 Wide X 36 1/2 Long X 29 Deep.the fronts for the drawers are an unknown wood to me salvaged the wood from a crate form Indonesia and the chest is made from poplar.there are also going to be three sliding tills under the larger drawer till.I am also going to build slide out racks that go towards the front end to accomadate brace drills and auger bits and sum racks to hold spoke shaves and such.And of course my planes will be stored on the bottom with pull out caddies.I’m also installing casters so it would be easier to roll around.working on the drawers and sliding trays this week hope to have the lid done also…..So much to do so little time!!!

Work safely!!!! SICILIAN.

Err.. Siciilian, umm, rules are rules, uhhh, the posting rule is “Finished projects” Maybe you should start a blog about this great project of yours ( I really like the way your box joint turned out ) Take care….

Yes, I want to post my finished project that is made of wood
If it doesn’t fit the above description (like tool gloats & upgrades, wood gloats, projects in progress etc.),
either blog it or post it in an appropriate forum. Otherwise it will be removed.

Off to a nice start , but this area is for completed projects. Perhaps you could start a blog and post your progress there : )

hello everybody
Am I missing something here?? The posting does say “projects in progress” am I correct in assuming that my project is not fully completed so I post it as I progress. Anyway I will heed to my friends advice and blog the progression of the chest. Thank you all for your kindness!!

hello Adrian!!
In reguards to cutting the finger joint it realy wasn’t that hard for me because I used my Leigh D4R-Pro finger joint jig. Thanks for comment.

Sicilian – The content inside the paragraphs are examples that do not fit the description ”Finished project that is made of wood.” That’s what Ex pointed out.

That said, that drawer till is incredible…

Heck, the whole chest is incredible! Nice work.

Very nice looking work! I will have to look for one of those jigs :) Edit: Oy! Just found one online. A little rich for my blood, so I will satisfy myself with looking at your work with it :)

my finished project that is made of wood

If it doesn’t fit the above description…..
and here’s the clue in parenthesis…...(like tool gloats & upgrades, wood gloats, projects in progress etc.),
either blog it or post it in an appropriate forum. Otherwise it will be removed.

Just answering your question : )

Forgive my old eyes, did you use dovetails or finger joints on the cases?
No matter very nice work!
