Summer is over and here is what I’ve been working on. I wanted to practice cutting dovetails and I needed a new way to store my tools. So why not combine the two things.
I chose plywood, because I did not know about edge jointing when I began and it is cheaper.
I was stating to have to many tools, the old tool board could not hold all my tools any more and it was kinda disorganized.
I basically made a very big box in tree parts. Here is where I got to practice the dovetails and the drawers
I wanted to be able to take it down from the wall and move it all. And I made handles so it can be carried.
An then it took me some time to plane the inside and make holders for the tools
Behind the plane till I made a sandpaper dispenser, that explains why sandpaper is sticking out behind it. The hinge is at the top.
Cajun box Greg has not spammed us with his beautiful boxes in vain. I got inspired when I made the drawers.
chiselholder which fits in the cabinet and I can bring out to my workbench.
I don’t have allot of space so the cabinet had to hold all my tools not just woodworking tools.
The narrow centerpart is big cupboard door and I can look it in place at both sides
The other side holds my measuring tools and some miscellaneous tools
and the last part holds mainly saws.
the saw till is made with magnets. It holds them in place very well
and there is still space for more tools in the future.
all in all its a great improvement to my workshop.
