    Workshop Tool Cabinet

    Here's a tool cabinet that I'm in the process of making for my Son's new workshop. The cabinet was an idea that I had which started with a base cabinet of drawers and then slowly evolved into a cabinet on a cabinet. A door and internal drawers were added in the final design phase. The cabinet is now being constructed. All of my construction notes and photos for this cabinet, as well as the Sketchup Drawing, are posted in my website HERE.

    The drawing for the cabinet was done in SketchUp then exported and rendered in Kerkythea. Some of the renderings are attached as well as some in process photos. Ron

    Very nice for sure.

    And great to see some woodworking on here too!
    God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
    the good fortune to run into the ones I do,
    and the eyesight to tell the difference.
