Built this tool chest in a weekend, my shop was getting out of control. Used some leftover oak veneer plywood I had left over from another project. Did all the cuts with my circular saw and a straightedge. Dadoed the shelves in with my router, and did rabbets for the drawers with my router too. The top border is built out of some solid oak I had leftover.
I turned the knobs on my lathe, used jatoba for them. I did an okay job of keeping them the same. I finished it with a couple coats of tung oil. Nice thing about building something for your shop is that you don’t need to spend much time sanding, just went of the rough spots with a card scraper.
I’m still deciding if I want to build dividers and holders for the tools or not. Going to test it our a bit longer and see how I feel.
