Project Information

I recently moved into a new shop and realized I needed a place to sharpen tools as well as more storage for, you know, stuff. I recalled seeing a piece on small shops in a FWW issue a couple of years ago, specifically, a cabinet in Mike Pekovich's shop which appealed to me. His has 3 banks of 5 drawers; mine has just 2.
Drawers run on hard maple slides set into the carcass and grooves dadoed into the drawer sides. Carcass in local milled pine, top is soft maple 1 3/4" thick. Shellac finish for protection. Pulls are 1" square walnut with a 10º bevel on the bottom for finger grip-- simple/effective.
The project took less than a week to complete and so far has met all my expectations. It's not very pretty but, hey, it's shop furniture. The 2 top 3" drawers hold all my diamond plates, stones and jigs and the rest …. stuff.
