    Hi guys just a quick question how many people have made each project and are working on the current tool chest, thanks

    I had that same question… I jumped in on the dovetail boxes, and haven’t had a chance to make anything more. I’m thinking of building the toolbox next. Paul made a comment that each project builds upon the skills learned in the previous project(s). I’m just curious how many are following that path, and whether I should strive to do that myself (even though I don’t need a coffee table ;).

    Each project? I wish I had that kind of time.

    I made a small dedicated sharpening bench from Paul’s workbench design, one dovetail box with lid, then Paul’s bookshelf (from the DVD series). Now I am on a detour with a wall cabinet, but will be moving on to the tool chest shortly.

    I do have to make a few more boxes for tool storage, as well as an entry table someday soon. Although my taste in furniture is generally more modern than Paul’s designs, I am sure I will be able to adapt joinery and construction techniques of his coffee table (and tool chest) into a design that will work for an entry hall table.

    I’ve made the tote and dovetail boxes. Have also applied some of the techniques to my own projects, such as mortice and tenon joinery on a fence and gate. Might do a bigger dovetail box next as a refresher before launching into the tool chest. I’m also thinking that a modified version would make a nice blanket/linen chest for the bedroom.

    I’am addicted started with bench and made everything except tote and breadboard I tried to design my own stuff but keep getting hung up ‘for now I am just going to follow Pauls instruction as I feel when I see it done right I get the confidence to try .I really enjoyed the coffee table for the simple reason I didn’t have a coffee table but then tried to design a tv stand to complement the table and replace my beat up ikea stand but got all flustered on which joints and how to approach it I just put it aside for now
