Tool Cabinet Details

When I made the wall cabinet for my hand tools recently there were a few details I didn’t get finished.  I had a small pile of tools that I intended to hang from the inside of the doors that I hadn’t yet made hangers for, and of course the drawers.  This past weekend I picked up some 4/4 Alder to make the rest of the tool holders, and the drawers.

I’m still cogitating on the drawers.  I have a “drawer lock joint” router bit that would probably make quick work of six drawers, and that kind of joinery would be in keeping with the down-home pragmatic construction I used on the rest of the cabinet (inexpensive shop-grade plywood, table saw joinery and biscuits).  At the same time, it would be a great chance to practice dovetailing and making drawers.

We’ll see.  I still need to make a holder for my rulers, squares, and panel and marking gauges.  By next weekend I should be ready to tackle the drawers, so I’d better have a plan by then.
