Don't be jealous, just get to work! It's always a trade off - do I work on a project to improve my shop or do I work on a new production. I think we all struggle with that one.
Jeff, I wanted to show the Purple Heart off ; and the sides of the drawers r Ash so it makes the Purple pop. It worked well with the Walnut and Bubinga also.
I love it. Great work. I have a question. Why did you put the blind dovetail pins to side of the draws instead of the draw front? Is that for decoration as there would be little pressure on the draw fronts when opening them? Any way, well done.
Mokusakusensei , the router on the left door doesn’t need to be removed to retrieve the saws but the screwdrivers; butterfly bits and excetra are hinged and must open to the left to take the saws out. The piece of wood behind the router is apple burl that is notched in the back for the middle saw to slide down and out.
Great job!. Do you have to remove the router plane to access the saws?
Beautiful! Nicely done! (My tools fantasize about a tool chest like that, but then are relegated to a boring slab of peg-board at the end of the day).
I stand and applaud you David!
ZOWEE!!! Beautiful and functional. I'm jealous .... of all the tools and the tool chest. I keep all my tools in an empty Coors Light case box. Not really, but I don't have anything even close to comparing to this. Great piece!!
I was cutting some dovetails recently. Here are the tools that I use when I cut them with hand tools.
