Progress on the Dutch Toolbox. Yesterday cut dados, glued sides and made locking pieces. I'm so far planning on painting the box with the shop color which is a light blue. I have some cut nails that I plan to added to the box once it is painted because I want to keep the heads of the nails black. I'm considering adding a drawer to the under part of the box.
The dados fit great. Using the Bridge City Tool Kerf Maker and a ¼" saw blade I was able to dial in the dados for the nominal ¾ ply easy peasy. No futzing with shims and trial and error. First time, dial in, dadoing with table saw concurred. Thanks for the video explaining how to use this tool, Paul-Marcel St-Onge over at http://www.halfinchshy.com/2011/06/bridge-city-km-1-kerfmaker-users-guide.html
Ideas for enhancements are swimming in my head. I think I should have applied finish on the insides before glue up, it would have been easier, but build and learn. I'm going to be adding a pull out drawer for layout tools. At least that is my thinking now. The outside color is planned to be a grey-blue color that will match the color scheme of the rest of my shop make tools. I have some cut nails I'll add for decoration and support after painting.
Doctors appointment today. Neurology checkup. Weird brain condition and even more difficult treatment.
