Just finished up the cabinets and drawers for the wood shop
Not as nice as Hillbilly Shooters last post but they should do the job
There are four cabinets 24.25” wide x 30.5” high and 12” deep – total width of 97”
The drawers are 4” high x 5.625” wide with removable masonite dividers
MDF carcass and shelves, the last of my reclaimed cedar for face frames, cedar doors and drawers
Scrap oak trim for the shelves so they take the abuse of removing and placing tools
Scrap 3mm clear acrylic from work for the doors
Though I had reservations I wanted to try the rabbet tongue and dado technique for the drawers and I was still trying to use up my cedar – bad idea using softwood of course because it can’t handle the dry fit and handling so a few drawer joints were blown out in the process – from now on i’ll use the Baltic Birch ply or hardwood for this type of joinery – lesson learned!
thanks for looking!
