    Some pretty cool adjustable shelves showed up in the Wall Hung Tool Cabinet somewhere between the door making videos and the door fitting video. Paul, can you provide some details about them such as (1) spacing between notches on the support pieces, (2) the angle you used for the hand plane shelf, and (3) besides being deeper, are there any special considerations for how the angled hand plane shelf fits into the notches?

    Thanks so much for this course. This is going to be a great addition to my shop!


    I noticed those as well!


    I was hoping there might be a series on dressing out the interior of the cabinet.

    I saw those shelf mounts as well and decided to add them to a cabinet I made for my fiance. I varied the design a little bit, but the concept’s the same. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I made a .pdf that shows the dimensions I used to make mine.

    In the first pic, I used a dovetail saw to cut the four segments, then chiseled the waste away at an angle. I used my router plane to channel out the slots for them to sit in the sides. After I fit the first two in, (the second pic) I realized the shelf wouldn’t sit in there without a better recess, so I chiseled across the piece to give room for the shelf to sit. After I did about six of those like that, I decided to break out my scroll saw and made quick work of the rest of them (24 in all).
    The third pic shows the top half of the cabinet. I hadn’t made the lower half at this point. Now, I keep forgetting to take pics of the completed project. Maybe one day I will ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hope this helps ๐Ÿ™‚


    Logically the interior shelf supports should have featured just before the sections on the doors as they were already in place when the doors were fited……………

    Perhaps it all went out of kilter during Paul’s move down to Oxfordshire.
    Anyway, it doesn’t matter as it all makes sense and we can watch it in any order.
