Can anyone find the measurements for this 1840 Shaker Tool Cupboard, or know where to locate them.
I have searched for them online and could not find them. It looks like a massive
but rewarding and migraine causing build. It also looks like it could hold almost a
lifetime collection of hand tools for woodworking…

Extrapolate what you need from a known source, the knobs are about 1 1/4” in diameter, the wood thickness could be 3/4”. Print the picture then copy each length to plane paper. Using draftsman’s dividers set them to the known dimension and walk the length of each of each major dimension thus giving you what you seek. You will not have an exact copy of the original but it will be close enough for your purposes. Shaker work is simple don’t try to coplicate it with rocket science.
