Tool cabinet (post #170642)

The SPAM filter is blocking my post so I am attaching a word document.  Any comments would be helpful.

Sorry No Comprende (post #170642, reply #1 of 2)

I would like to read your post but I don't have Word on my Mac so could not open your word doc.  Most of the members who used to be here on Knots are at this chat room

it is easy to use and nearly identical to the way Knots used to function before the great decline.  Perhaps you would like to post your question there as well.

Oh Peas !

hold on . . . if I hold my tung just right and stand on one foot  . . . and . . . just a little further . . .

There we go !

 I really like the layout of the cabinet by Jan Zoltowski in the recent FWW issue.  I even bought the plywood the other weekend. I haven't started yet because I have a concern over what does it look like with doors shut. There are not any good pictures with the doors closed. I didn't want to put all this time and effort into a project that only looks great when its open. I've been looking at other styles and really like the look of a finished door, not fancy panel raised doors, just a nice simple finished look. I like the way this one is made in a box and then split into pieces, but I've been trying to figure out how to incorporate a more finish look on the outside. Not edges of plywood showing and an overlapping piece of plywood to cover the gap between the doors. Does anyone else feel this way and have any suggestions to improve the looks of the exterior?

I was able to open your doc in my text editor but the font was minisucle on my end so enlarged and bingo.
Now wasn't that special ?
Sheet !
But try The Burl for the most responces anyway.
PS: I would answer your question but all that took it out of me.  I gotta rest up.  Maybe tomorrow.
PPS: while I am resting maybe you want to see a REAL tool chest
Chris Becksvoorts tool cabinets are pretty great too
And if you find you have a little extra time to spend on your cabinet you could make one like Andy Rae's
Ahhhhh !
:   )
After seeing those cabinets I am feeling much refreshed.  Now what was the question again ?
