Machinist Chest

Woodsmith Magazine has challenged me again with an interesting project. This machinist chest involves numerous types of joinery including 1/8 inch tenons to hold together 3/8 inch boards to make the drawers, box joints and stub tenons and raised panels. I hope to take you along thru the cut list, assembly, and finish. Looks like an interesting project requiring exacting specifications. Here is picture of the iWoodmith Issue showing a pic of the project. All the pieces of milled 1/2 and 3/8 inch already glued up, cut to final size, and ready to sand before assembly.

I love these chests. I have been reading Tolpin's toolbox book in which he has several of these detailed. Carry on and post. Good luck.

This is going to be a nice addition to your shop. It looks like a fun build. I looked hard at this one and thought about building one of these but, of course, my project list somehow seems to take a back seat to the ones that my wife "commissions".

Dock,
Keep in mind that the plan is designed for flush mount drawer pulls . If your planning on using a knob pull that projects out from the drawer, you`ll have to allow extra clearance (shorter drawer) otherwise the front panel won`t close…MC

I have been trying so hard to find this pattern. You got any tips for me? I have about 800 board foot of cherry taking up space in my shop and I'm wanting to make a machinist chest or two.

Hello that was very nice. I have searched for plan but none seem available. Can anyone tell me where I can locate detailed plans?

Thanks

Case Assembly and Drawer Installation

Worked on this new project over the weekend and have to say this is alot tougher than I thought it was going to be. Tolerances are very tight. Some cuts for the drawers have to be within 1/32th or the gaps between the drawers are crooked. Thank heaven for micro adjust on the Incra router fence. Alot of do-overs on the drawers which was frustrating as I tried to cut all the drawer fronts from one piece to get a good grain match, which means if you screw up one drawer you have to redo all 7 drawers if you want them all to match. I'm going to school on this one, maybe the next one will be mistake free…...yeah right.
