The Tool Drawer Organiser is a perfect training project for anyone wanting to take the plunge into their first half lap dovetails. At first, it may appear a simple project; however, this piece encompasses many interesting complexities such as tenoned housing dadoes for drawer backs, ultra long housing dadoes, ploughing grooves, drawer sizing and fitting, and much more. Paul made his first one over two decades ago and it has since become an indispensable part of his workshop. This design proves that something utilitarian can be both functional and beautiful. Designed primarily as a home for special hand tools, the project is scalable and could also make a good unit for storing fine art equipment, leatherwork tools, knives for violin making and all manner of other things.
