    Hello,
    I needed i wall hung tool cabinet – the Paul’s version is great so…
    First things first – material – mostly pine. Doors will be made of reclamed oak (form an old wardrobe) and ash with oak for fronts for drawers.
    Dovetails for the carcass construction. Nothing specjal but i was experimenting a little with different saws.

    Carcass dovetailing completed. Back panel is made a little differently than Paul’s. I use a rebate joint. Now i need to clean my bench;-)

    PS. I’m sorry about this horizontal picutre but I can’t make it right way. Don’t know why:-(

    Laszlo, very nice work on the dovetails and the through mortises. They look very crisp. I like the fourth picture in your first post – looks like you’re using two saws at once. You can saw two dovetails in the time it takes to saw one! Talk about ambidextrous!

    Matt, it,s called “ninja mode”. It’s not easy – one is pulled – one is pushed in the same time;-))) But siriously – I prefer European style saws. Though I own only crappy ones.

    Nice work, Laszlo!!

    If you mean the small gap above the right drawer by “Not the best fit” you might consider to add a small chamfer on the sides and at the bottom of the drawer matching the size of the top gap. This way you might get a consistent “gap” all around without being loose in the fit. That might result in a “hovering in the center” look which could be quite nice. The left drawer should match to that look of course.

    Just an idea.

    Je Lee – i was thinking rather about half-blind dovetails fitting. I’ve taken this particular picture in the time when the whole carcas was not glued. Now it’s glued and now I have a problem about hinges. Basicly, I can not find the right ones. This is how my tool cabinet looks like now.

    Laszlo,

    the half-blind dovetails look great judging from your photos. And the brass drawer handle is very interesting and appealing. And it is – again judging from the photo – impeccably fitted in.

    I wish you good luck with the hinges.

    Je,

    I had to check the meaning of the word “impeccably” in dictionary. I didn’t know if you offending me or something;-)
    I have a nice idea about door handles but those hinges …
    If i could buy from Lee Valley hardware catalogue … ech.
