Chisel Chest – Completed and installed

The chisel Chest is done. I started the project on 5/25/2014. It was completed yesterday 7/22/2014. So About 8 weeks. Probably about 10 sessions in the shop.

The chest uses full extension 16″ slides.   There are 6 2 1/2″ drawers and one 5″ drawer.   The carcus construction is all Home Depot SandePly with Pocket Hole joinery.   The inside drawer dimensions are 31″ wide x 14 1/2″ deep.

This is step #3 in a four step process so my planes and backsaws will have a new nice home.

Step 1 was a new set of shelves.   This cleared space so I could move my 8 organizer boxes to the right side of the cutoff saw table.

Step 2 was moving the organizer boxes.  had to reset some shelves .

Step 3 is the Chisel Chest.  This will clear all of the chisels from the white tool wall

Step 4 is to build a plane and saw till.  These will be open and attached to the white tool wall.

So here is the chisel chest in it’s new home.  I think it looks really great and I am very pleased with the result.
