« Part 1: Intro Part 2 of Dutch Tool Chest Build-a-long series Part 3: Not quite ready to resaw yet »

After a couple of days in the shop, I have the main case and shelf pieces dimensioned and ready to rip in half to the best of my abilities. Assuming all goes reasonably well with that I will be ready to start on the dovetails and dado for the shelf here in a day or so. Wish me luck!

Looks good so far Brian. i’ve had mine for a few years now along with a cabinet makers chest. I use them both frequently, Dutch contains the tools I use the most. I take classes and it’s convenient to grab the chest and go. I do use the term grab loosely, it still weighs in at about sixty pounds or so full.

Looking forward to watching your build.

Looking good so far, thought about something like that, even bought the Anarchist’s Tool Chest(good read) but decided needed more storage on the walls and less stuff on the floor! Have been practicing my D.T.s and have decided to get some actual D.T. chisels, the Sweethearts work but do have some shortcomings. (Maybe it is me?)

Thanks guys! I can definitely use more practice on dovetails. Will get some here soon enough. The ones I did on my sons cedar pencil (Pokémon card holder) box turned out great.

Have your say...
