Okay, no pics didn’t happen. Observe cabinet #1 mounted on the wall in the picture behind it (the reason I framed the photo this way…)

This case went together dead square, with no argument whatsoever. Go figure…

After fussing with swapping between countersink and driver bits on the last case, I got my hands on a Ryobi “Speed Load” chuck, and countersink set (I busted countersink bits, and needed new ones). The new set allows quick release and insert of new bits, I couldn’t be happier with them…

This week will likely see me finishing up my outer doors, cutting hinges, and getting things sanded down and a coat of oil on them. Most likely will be brushed on instead of wiped.

In the long run, this whole project will be time well spent as I really need to free up the front wall of my shop. And layered storage is certainly the way to go!

The shelves and shelf pins are a bit odd for this thing though, very narrow… I am sure they will be useful for some things, but most likely, I will hang mesh baskets on the peg board inside instead of using the shelves…

Until next time… Have fun, be safe, and keep making sawdust!
