Small machinist's chest

Postby Gene Davis » Mon Dec 08, 2008 3:02 pm

Neal Barrett did this design for Popular Mechanics magazine a while back, and I did it in Sketchup to proof the design before making one. Made for my grandson, Vannie, thus the file name.

Whitechapel, a hardware source in Jackson, WY, has the knobs, hinges, and keyed latch you'll need to finish it. Line the drawers in green felt if you want to give it the authentic machinist chest look.

Very nice cabinet, Gene. Your grandson is lucky. And he's going to be able to hand that down to a son or grandson and say with pride, "This was built by my grandfather." Is the photo of the one you built?
