Several months ago I was going to get plans for a tool chest and posted my plans on my Wood Talk Online blog.

“My plan is to build a large, hanging tool chest for the shop based on a plan I found in FW's 2007 issue of Tools & Shops. Just waiting on the plans (yes I had to buy the paper as no SketchUp or other digital form was available…sigh).

It has surfaced again. Got the plans no problem. Got the baltic birch plywood and hard maple. Sorted out the French Cleat positioning in my shop. Now I am rebuilding my tablesaw crosscut sled so it can double as a box joint jig for this puppy.

Half-way there…resurfaced the sled with hardboard and made the side left of the blade kerf adjustable by up to an inch to keep that zero clearance thing I love about this sled. Now to put together the removable 1/2” box joint jig…but (unfortunately) vacation was over and I had to go back to work (the one that pays for this wonderful hobby)... heavy sigh.

Jim Tolpin’s Toolbox book might interest you if you’ve never seen it. There’s a couple of chest like that in it. I look forward to seeing this develop
