« Part 2: Progress Part 3 of Building my version of the Essential Tool Chest series Part 4: Lid is finished »

Yesterday and a little bit this morning was spent jointing and fitting the front, back and drawer dividers. I now have a complete carcase.

Drawer dividers in and fit.

Front and back installed and fit.

I need more practice on my mortises but they got better as things progressed. Should be fairly easy to cover the mistakes.

On to the lid and drawers.
