« Part 4: Shaping and adding Spacers to the Handles Part 5 of Tool Chest series no next part

Well I finally got the lid back together. My better half thought it looked too good to stay in the garage, but after checking it out in the bed room, it is too small for the foot of the bed. Close call.

As I was mortising the hinges, I dropped the lid onto a front corner. Popped one of the mitered bridle joints. I thought I had clamped the frame to tightly onto the panel but the fit is ok. Reglued the joint, doweled it from underneath. Fit is good and looks ak. It is a tool chest, not fine furniture. I am very pleased wit how it turned out. I learned so much. Thank You Roy Underhill for having such a great school!!

This shows the back with the lid support attached with cut nails. (Trying to stay in period)

Thank you for looking.

Hey Rob:
Great looking chest. Tool storage is far more important than blankets. Congrats on winning that one!
