    Thanks Bob.

    That's Christian Becksvoort's design. You can get the full plans for it including the SketchUp model if you are interested.

    Thanks Dave I appreciate your posts here. Dont get chance to get round to FWW site.

    My original training at the drawing board has me needing to throw off the shackles of the limitations one grew up with when using pecil and set squares on a T square.

    That cabinet also looks like a good design for the front of a good tool cabinet or at least the start of one.

    I like Shaker style. Nice and clean.
    cheers

    Going to order up the plans and it will be the next project. Just have to finish up the bed for my grandson.

    Thanks Dave

    Wow, yet another Sketchup trick I didn't know about. Thanks, Dave.

    Bob, have fun building it. It looks like a really nice piece and the build should be pretty straightforward.

    Rob, You are quite welcome. I agree with you about it being the start of a nice tool chest. I suppose it could be made a bit shallower and with more drawers. Maybe a low chest of small drawers behind the doors.

    Vaughn, I'm glad it was a useful post for you.

    Sketchup never fails to amaze me. Thanks for the tip Dave!

    Great tip. I went back to some of my more involved items and played wit the focal point and perspective. A definite improvement.
