I received my New Dowel Max in the post the other day, and what a great great jig it is.

I went with the standard 3/8th and also bought the attachments for 1/4 doweling. So, there is a few parts . Decided to get on and build this chest for it.

Rather tough trying to work out the best configuration to house all the parts, storage compartments for the dowels is at the base of the chest. I literally ran out of plywood so used dowel max to join pieces together.
Ran a Beech trim around the top and base, coated with decking oil. Oh, The handles turned out nice they where from Ash , ran a round type cove router bit along for finger grip.

Thanks for reading
Regards
Anthony

Nice job on making a well laid out storage box. I keep going back to the pictures to look at them more and see what ideas I can borrow.

Thanks Gents, for the comments.

Thanks Earl , If I can help let me know. I first put all the parts on the bench and just kind of moved them about to get the best configuration. Then moved them as close as I could to each other to get my initial overall size.

Anthony

There’s a lot of things I like about your box but the top is best

Thanks Dick for the comment,
The top had to be flat so other things could be stored or placed on top.
I was a little slack with the hinging of the top, I should have used the hinges as conventional butt hinges and that way the top doors would have folded 270 degrees around and hung down the sides. Yesterday afternoon I was a bit tired and slack not to change it.

Cheers for the comment Uncle Simon, It does seem that you metal junkies are all the same. Here in the real word of wood however, there is no room for brown or black stain.
Kind regards
Anthony
