Hardware and small parts storage unit. I have used disposable plastic take away containers to store all my hardware and small parts for years and have wanted to build a unit to store them for nearly as long. I started by messuring up and doing my sums as to determin my dimensions then grabbed some scrap ply from some table tops I rebuilt for a wine bar a while back ( this will be up soon stay tuned!) and cleaned them up, sanding and filling the worst of the holes.
Next I scribbed all my lines on what would be the upright pieces and cut them all in on the table saw. It took 3 passes for each but I cut one on each piece filipping sides to and faces. These were cut to an managable size on my (unsecured ) mitersaw then cut to size on the tablesaw. Everything got a couple coats of paint then tops and bottoms had the dados cut with a quick jig which I was very proud of inventing untill I realised people had been copying me for many years before I thought if it. Everything was then glued and brad nailed together checking for square. There was a lot more fetteling to get this done than there was time to show in the video but it all went together well in the end.
I cut stripps of some left over pine I had from making picture frames and glued these to the front. These were held in place with masking tape as I didn't want nails visable on the front. On the back I cut strips slightly wider with a rebateto allow a hardboard back to be slotted in. This were glued and nailed inplace as its the back. Any little marks left were filled, then sanded and the trip was given a couple of coats of dannish oil and left to dry over night. Then next day I tapped the edges and gave the top and sides one more coat of paint and then they were done!
