Yes, still not top, but I’ve finished the case. And no worries, I have enough finish to do the top. I’ve been waiting on hinges before I complete the top and paint it.
I finished up the interior tool holding today on the DTC. Here’s a picture of how its coming along.
I’m gluing on the front pieces without nailing because I’m going to paint first then add the nails. I’m a pretty decent nailer (I sided my whole house, so I’ve had lots of practice with small nails) so hopefully I won’t mess the finish up too much. I’ll use screws for the hinges and some of the tool racks, but nails for the rest.
Today I got a little time to set up my tool rack in the back of the chest. I figured it’d be easier to do this before I put on the front. I’m also waiting for my hinges to show up, so it made sense to work on this now. It involved a lot of fiddling and fitting, but I finally got everything in. For the most part, I used Chris’ 1/2″ hole every 1 1/8″ rule on a 1″ thick stick.
This would put all my chisel (bench and specialty) in one place which is preferable to the hither and yon set up that I have now. I’m not a matched set kinda gal so it looks a little messy, but oh well. After the rack is attached to the case, I’ll glue the suede to the back which will help keep the saw handles from getting scratched or rubbed.
