« Part 19: Sucking Sawdust Part 20 of Of Tool Cabinets, Chewing Gum and Sealng Wax series Part 21: Initial Trim and Inlay »

COVID has done weird things everywhere. But I have managed to get out in the shop make progress on my Tool Cabinet.

Throughout 2020 I managed to get all the lower cabinet drawers made and set.

Created a mid-deck gallery and knocked together the main section of the upper cabinet. And installed and finished the top.

Over Christmas of 2021 I added some trim to the Mid-deck Gallery

And in February-March completed Walnut trimmed drawer faces and installed handles and bolted the Mid-deck gallery to the lower cabinet

sweet looking storage cabinet. The drawer fronts look like figured maple and the walnut trim sets them off nicely. High end shop storage for sure.

Looks great, I may borrow your mid-deck idea there. That way if I add doors to the top they won’t rake off stuff that will end up on top.

Ha! Great point and that’s exactly why I did it. If you look back earlier in this thread my original design had within the doors. But like you I could foresee me wiping stuff off the top. I’m kinda lazy so… :-)

Yeah, unfortunately I’ve bought materials at different times and places and the Plywood is all over the map. So the drawer faces are Maple Plywood the rest is a mix of birch and sanded ply. It’s why the Mid-deck is so pale. This is def a learning experience.
