Tool Cabinet
« on: March 05, 2007, 12:19 PM »

We start with a nice new TS55/CT22 Combo Purchase.



Then we get some nice Baltic Birch and cut out the top, bottom, and sides with our new TS55.  (You can see the FWW special edition I'm using for the plans in the photo.)

Day 2

I cut some of the ugliest finger joints known to mankind.  Next time I'm cutting finger joints I can't do on the tablesaw I'm going to use one of those locking router bits instead. 



Then I dry fit.

Day 3

Glue Up!



Rabbiting the Panels



Glue/Staple the Panels.  (Yup, I screwed up the directions here!  I was supposed to just temporarily screw them so the panels could be removed to route the dadoes for the shelves. I'll just put a liner inside and live with my mistake!)

Hello Jon,
I was curious how the cabinet came out/is coming along? I have this same issue and was planning to make some wall space and build something similar.
Thanks,
Daniel

Not sure why you went with finger/box joints instead of half blind or through dovetails - but to each his own.

Since you used ply - a backer board AND a "fronter" board would probably eliminated all the tear out/blow out you got.

When it comes time to fill your cabinets - think "modules" rather than permanent "built ins".  You WILL want to change the interior set up at some point.  So - go modular.
