I have not got around to making the tool chest as yet but I did get as far as producing the attached spreadsheet to summarise the length of material required per width and thickness Hope it makes sense
Sorry I don’t think it will open up the spreadsheet ? I have not tried to add an Excel spreadsheet before

Hi David and ken
I opened cutting list up in numbers got usual error warning very readable.
I have converted to PDF
Makes me laugh When doing cutting list in UK you start with the Length x width x thickness.
I was taught to say 8’x 4″x 2″
The yanks say 2″x 4″x 8′
It is the same for drawings UK use 1st angle projection. The Yanks 3rd angle projection. Totally opposite to one another.

It would be too easy if we all just used the same system. 🙂

Thanks David for posting these spreadsheets. I purchased some 4/4 White Oak at my local supplier using pad and paper calculations to determine the amount needed and I think I have enough for the box. I may have to get creative on the drawers and make them out of something fun with contrast and highlights. Your spreadsheet(s) opened automatically in NUMBERS on my Mac.

Thanks David, I love the way you broke it out by widths, makes it easy to figure out when I am shopping random widths and lengths at the lumber store. I am off to pick the material up next week.

Glad you found it useful I have still not got around to making it, I do not have enough room in my garage for a stand alone tool cabinet I keep all of my tools in three cabinets under my two benches
