Project Information

Hey Guys,

since you helped me with a Problem i had during the build of my Piece, i wanted to share the result with you guys and express my gratitude.

My piece was originally designed as a Toolchest. Now i am not so sure anymore:)

I used Ash and Walnut. The Panel i put it the Lid is also ash

The trade school gave me 100 hrs to build it and i barely made it in time.
the Dimension are

Width 33.5 in
Height 27.5 in
depth? 20 in

The drawers are push to open. I used brass hardware for everything but the Handles
I was surprised in the end about how big it actually was, cought me a little bit off guard i admit but it´s been a success and i am nominated for first place…so i couldn´t be more happy atm. :)

thank you

I didn´t:) My thought was, this is wood and not plywood or particleboard so I just kept working. The problems i had due to that mistake, i handled as they presented themselves. Which turned out to be the right decision. It got complicated by the fact that i didnt have any wood for replacement parts left. I miscalculated the amount of wood needed roughly by 30%. In the end I learned a bunch so all is well..and it turned out ok.
The only thing that i fined frustrating is that i couldn´t display the small drawers like i wanted to…they are actually quite nice. Made from the same lumber as the panel in the lid.



p.s My Carcass is out of square on each side by 3/64th of an inch

:) I design and build a lot of my projects that way? Consider it a fingerprint.
