Locking the drawers without the need to install a lock-set into each drawer face is accomplished by drilling 5/16 inch holes through the front inside corners of the bottoms of each drawer and the tool well. Then just drop an appropriate length of 1/4 inch hardwood dowel down through the holes when the drawers are closed to "lock" them in place. The dowels can be "stored" in the top tool well when not in use, as their length will be shorter than the width of the chest. That way, only the top section needs to be locked to secure the entire chest for the night or for travel, and you have some spare doweling available for use in a pinch to pin a joint! ;-)
With this I sign off following the pod. I don't find audio only anything very useful. I get a lot from watching the white board explanations and expressions of the hosts as they talk about things that are missed in the video format. Good luck with the video only format.
