The following photos are of a tool storage cabinet I designed for my 5 year old grandson. I purchased the matched walnut crotch wood 4 years ago from Metro Hardwoods located in Independence, Missouri. I’ve wanted to design a James Krenov style cabinet and when I saw the crotch walnut I knew I had to have it.  At the time my grandson wasn’t a year old yet but I knew at the time that it would make great focal point for this project.   Read more

Tyler’s Tool Cabinet Update May 1, 2011

I thought readers would be interested in seeing the latest photos of the tool cabinet I’ve designed and is under construction for my 5 year-old grandson.  If he doesn’t become a woodworker, it can be used as an armoire.  I have almost 200 hours in construction.  This is my first attempt to make hand-cut dovetails.  The cabinet has a total of 12 drawers and I have only 4 completed.  I’m happy to report that the fourth drawer turned out better than the first with regards to joint fit.  All the joints are functional but not as attractive as they could be.  Practice, practice and more practice is needed.  I’m following Rob Cossman’s technique for making the joint.

The basic design is a chest-on-stand (James Krenvon inspired) with a touch of Green and Green with a comtempory cornice.  No real style but it seems to work.  Let me know your thoughts about the design.  I’m working form my own sketches so let me know if you would like a copy and I’ll email them to you.

Thanks for visiting our website and please leave a comment.  God Bless!
