Here is a quick update on the tool chest project , “Live” from the shop.
As you can see below, I’ve been inspired a lot by the tool chest Marc Spagnuolo aka “The woodwhisperer” did last summer .
Although i have Simplified it a bit.
I hope he doesn’t mind that.
I will, as he did, use mortise and tenons for the joinery.
I cut all the pieces to the chest and laminated the bottom pieces to double the thickness, I did the same with the top.
I also mitered the edges to make it more practical and esthetic.
Then I routed mortises (my router table came in handy and the work went much faster thanks to the router table) in the bottompiece, in the backpiece and on the toppiece.
I also made tenons in the panels.
I put it all together to see that everything was ok , No Glue!
everything did fit and seems to work fine
Now i will start with the doors
to be continued …
