Here is a quick update on the tool chest project , “Live” from the shop.

As you can see below, I’ve been inspired a lot by the tool chest Marc Spagnuolo aka “The woodwhisperer” did last summer .
Although i have Simplified it a bit.
I hope he doesn’t mind that. 
I will, as he did, use mortise and tenons for the joinery.

I cut all the pieces to the chest and laminated the bottom pieces  to double the thickness, I did the same with the top.

I also mitered the edges to make it more practical and esthetic.

Then I routed mortises (my router table came in handy and the work went much faster thanks to the router table) in the bottompiece, in the backpiece and on the toppiece.

I also made tenons in the panels. 

I put it all together to see that everything was ok , No Glue!
everything did fit and seems to work fine

Now i will start with the doors
to be continued …

i have more pictures and info at at my blog ,
