A. A traditional tool chest plan using frame-and-panel construction. The top tool well is 115mm(4.1/2") deep. The eight drawers have tongue-and-rabbet joinery running over traditional hardwood slides. Spring pins lock the front cover in position and the lid in turn can be locked. Built using all standard hardware (not included). One half sheet of 3mm plywood plus about 4.5m of hardwood are required. Overall size is 635 x 265 x 400mm high (25" x 10.1/2" x 15.3/4").
B. The rolling cabinet with its optional workbench top makes an ideal base for the tool chest. Three half sheets of plywood (16mm, 12mm and 6mm) plus 6m of hardwood (3m without optional workbench top) are required. Either biscuit or dowelled joints can be used. A sliding tool/drawing tray leaves the top clear for working. Overall size is 470 x 675 x 865mm high (with castors) (18.1/2" x 26.1/2" x 34").
