Dutch Tool Chest

Recommended Posts

Thank guys. I actually have some casters that I might put on the bottom so I can roll it around the shop. 

 

Tony- Look forward to seeing your chest!

I thought I was all done with the Dutch Tool Chest build, but then I saw this post from Chris Schwarz on the Pop Woodworking site. I knew right away that I wanted to build that lower chest. I got started on it right away. I was able to get a little work done today. I laid out all the parts and cut the top, bottom and sides to final dimension. I also finished the dovetails for the sides and the bottom, although they still need a little bit of finessing. 

 

I did not take any pictures of cutting the dovetails, they are pretty much the same as the Dutch Chest. I did make one minor change. I decided to use four dovetails instead of six.

Nicely done.  I'm sure you're going to appreciate the extra storage as well as not having to bend so far for items in the top section.

Thanks Fellas! Now time to build something for the house  :D

 

Does that mean your're going to put the chest on wheels so you can get it in the house?  ;)

I really like the idea of the bottom rolling cart. When planning mine I imagined I'd just have it on a stand. Makes sense to hold more stuff though!
