(Ready for handles and a counter top)
Having hosted a successful work session on Monday to build and install cabinets in my new workshop, I followed it up with a drawer-building session on Tuesday. My friend Chris Abbott joined me and together we tackled the most challenging components – the 36-inch wide drawers (at right in the above photo) that I’ll use for styrene and strip wood storage, and the corner cabinet with its double-hinged doors and carousel. We celebrated our progress at Harbord House. (That’s twice this week! I should buy shares…)
Yesterday, I wore out the dogs at a herding lesson, and while they slept it off I spent the afternoon finishing the drawers. I also installed one end panel (at left in the photo above). I have another to add to the right side of the cabinet, and then I can move onto installing handles and adding a counter top.
Meantime, I had a general plan of how I would use this storage but now I can plan out what goes where in more detail. I have 30 drawers – 18 at 18″ wide, six at 24″ wide, and six at 36″ wide – plus a corner cabinet. That should hold all of my hobby tools and supplies!
I also have a mountain of cardboard. Too bad I don’t model The Rockies…
(Thanks for the help, Chris – always great to spend time with you!)
