    Re: Picking up where I left off in Hickory with the tool chest build

    Mark that sounds great, at least one block plane would work. And Ken I think that would be good, noting wrong with a little project saw at all. We all have to start somewhere and this is a good jump start project. Thank you both kindly.

    Re: Picking up where I left off in Hickory with the tool chest build

    So after a busy couple of weeks I finally spent a few hours in the shop today. I started processing the white oak parts and cut the molding detail on the fall front and the lid. Next up mount the hardware pre mount the oak parts and then start the finishing. After that I'll turn the handles and mount them as well. More later this week. Thanks for looking.

    Thanks for sharing the build and the noble cause its intended for. I've alway found traditional woodworking therapeutic.

    Re: Picking up where I left off in Hickory with the tool chest build

    So, I have been really busy lately but I have found some time to put into this little guy.

    On this one I chose to modify the hinge so there would not be any exposed screws on the outside of the chest.
    I now have a good wash coat of shellac on all the parts and I'm ready to start painting this bad boy. After that I'll need to make the handles mount them and the tool racks.

    Richard,

    PM me your snail mail address and I'll get a USPS box on the way to you with a Crosscut Full Size saw and a Dove Tail saw to add to the toolchest.

    Re: Picking up where I left off in Hickory with the tool chest build

    Hank, these came from Lee Valley. They carry several styles and sizes. I then had to bend them, so I heated them to a red hot and bent them to the slope of the chest allowing them to lay flat with the lid closed and making the lid self supporting when open. I did not do this on my personal box for several reasons, wishing I had after the fact, maybe later this year I'll pull the top board lose and redo the hinge arrangement on mine, or maybe not. I have to say I like the hinge arrangement on this one better. So bending them wasn't to bad, the only issue was I set off the fire alarm in the house and scared the crap out of the cats not mention I sure wasn't expecting it. Thank goodness Mona wasn't home I would have had some explaining to do.��

    Awful lot of hand-tooling going on there.
    The thing that holds up all my woodworking is simply getting started.

    Re: Picking up where I left off in Hickory with the tool chest build

    Wow, I was truly wondering if this color is close enough to the website color. Any feedback?

    Re: Picking up where I left off in Hickory with the tool chest build

    Are you putting the brown over the yellow, then distressing it? If so, I would say that is pretty close to the NCWW colors. The distressing in the first pic doesn't look too "natural". I'm long on critique, but short on how-to.

    Is that milk paint?
    I'll gladly tell you how I do something. Just please don't confuse that with the right way to do it, and almost certainly not the only way.

    i was playing with a crackle medium to see what the reaction was and to see the colors. You're right that doesn't look very natural yet. And yep that's Milk Paint. It's the fourth project I've done with the product, but the first one useing the crackle medium. It's going to take a couple more sample boards.
