Machinest Tool Chest – 4

16th Feb – I had a good day in the shop and completed a dry fit-up of the tool chest and gave it a sanding on all surfaces to 180 grit so the carcase now ready for glue-up. However, Waxilit is recommended to be applied to the exposed surfaces along the many joint lines to inhibit the glue from penetrating the wood outside the joints which causes those ugly stain & finish resistant marks on cabinetry so i have elected to wait until i can get this material. But!, it needs to be frost protected hence Lee Valley will not ship it in the winter months so I may have to wait a while until I or a.n.other goes to Victoria. 🙁

Meanwhile I’ll start work making the eight drawers 🙂
