Small Tool Chest Build Equals BIG TIME Workshop Storage | Woodworking

Small Tool Chest Build Equals BIG TIME Workshop Storage | Woodworking

I’m a shop slob. I’ll be the first to admit it. But I’m tired of being disorganized, so I built this small tool chest of drawers ( * detailed plans available * ) and I’m already in love with how much it’s cut down on my clutter. In this video I’ll show you how I made mine, and how you can make a small woodworking tool chest too!

    OMG – mind blown re reversing mitre gauge – well played sir

  2. Tsz2g4f on April 17, 2022 at 6:02 pm

    so where did that blue tape trick come from??

  3. Edwardian Steam Works on April 17, 2022 at 6:02 pm

    I just came across your channel.
    Your cinematographic choice of camera angles and the time consuming setup to get them paid off big time in this video. It really is something quite special you’re making for YouTube. I get frustrated with how much it slows down my making of steam engines so I end up not getting my footage up on YouTube. So, good for you!
    Oh….and Go 9ers. 😁

    I know I’m late to this video but real nice video my friend! Shalom and yes, dove tails….. lol

  5. Bob Weiram on April 17, 2022 at 6:05 pm

    The blue tape trick comes from petrovski of fine woodworking.

  6. Kingsub 1994 on April 17, 2022 at 6:06 pm

    Hi nice work, couple of questions if you have a moment – did your wood come dried already? and whats the device you are using at 3.54 to help with the mitre cuts?

  7. Arie Al-Amin on April 17, 2022 at 6:07 pm

    An incredible idea
    Ye, I also learnt woodworking lots from


  8. Bradley Gallagher on April 17, 2022 at 6:08 pm

    I think you can learn more about this on Woodglut.

  9. Jarrett Montgomery on April 17, 2022 at 6:08 pm

    You got me distracted with the Pekovich blue tape question, it took my a second to realize the frame must’ve been inspired by his Kumiko cabinet as well, right?? Looks great

  10. Primal Edge Designs on April 17, 2022 at 6:09 pm

    The worst part about this video is the fact that it took the YouTube algorithm so damn long to suggested in my feed! Awesome video great content, equals new sub!

  11. Nathan Bilbao on April 17, 2022 at 6:09 pm

    Drill bit depth stop guage. Definitely never thought about that! Nice!

  12. Joseph Vanderveen on April 17, 2022 at 6:10 pm

    Rob cosman?

  13. Ed Rhodes on April 17, 2022 at 6:10 pm

    Flip the mitre gauge around?! Brilliant!! Thanks for that.

  14. stephen garrett on April 17, 2022 at 6:10 pm

    Gryfindor?! But I’m a Slitherin!

  15. stewartfrye on April 17, 2022 at 6:10 pm

    get more and better files, best you can afford, your welcome

  16. Juan Briza on April 17, 2022 at 6:12 pm

    Exelent gracias

  17. justin mackey on April 17, 2022 at 6:13 pm

    😮🤯 never thought about turning the miter gauge around. That’s a fantastic idea!

  18. Paul Bull on April 17, 2022 at 6:19 pm

    Great video, and lots of good ideas. Thanks for sharing mate. 👍🇦🇺 your new subscriber

  19. Ontology Talk with Adam Pease on April 17, 2022 at 6:19 pm

    great video! Could you say more about the blue tape trick? Is it primarily for visibility? Or maybe it helps with having few marks to sand out later?

  20. Jesse Tate on April 17, 2022 at 6:20 pm

    @6:111 you totally blew my mind. How have I never thought of that!?

  21. TheTranq on April 17, 2022 at 6:22 pm

    Nice build. Elegant design. I’m gonna check out the squaring sticks

  22. Justin Bentley on April 17, 2022 at 6:23 pm

    Love the ’24’ style split screen !

  23. Dan Hoke on April 17, 2022 at 6:25 pm

    Nice! I can’t believe you haven’t shown up in my feed before. Great work both on the chest and the video quality.

  24. Ronni Barber on April 17, 2022 at 6:25 pm

    You just blew my mind woth the miter gage tip…I can’t believe I never thought of that

  25. Christopher Dunn on April 17, 2022 at 6:27 pm

    It is so inspiring to watch you work. Fantastic outcome! Thanks for sharing.

  26. Geoff G on April 17, 2022 at 6:28 pm

    Mind blown moment for me when you said about turning the maitre gauge around. That alone was worth the price of admission.

  27. Daniel Hackney on April 17, 2022 at 6:29 pm

    Holy mother of God! I actually said that out loud when you showed the "flip the miter gauge" trick. How did I not think of that before? This changes everything!

  28. Jim Derksen on April 17, 2022 at 6:29 pm

    I’m sorry you can turn it around?! What the hell!

  29. Matt Peterson on April 17, 2022 at 6:30 pm

    Subbed simply because of that miter gauge trick. Holy cow! I think you are blowing a lot of folks minds with that tip. Also, haven’t ever seen those squaring sticks. Great simple idea. Haha… great looking toolbox.

    You have a twin?

  33. Shantelle Adeline on April 17, 2022 at 6:33 pm

    I found some amazing plans for Woodprix. Just check them out.

  34. ThatRobHuman on April 17, 2022 at 6:33 pm

    how the heck did you get that split shot with the board. It’s either two shots that are supremely well timed, or there’s a trick on the board POV to keep the camera out of frame from the third-person camera?!?

  35. Michael Thompson on April 17, 2022 at 6:34 pm

    Blue tape trick = Mike Pekovich of Fine Woodworking. He also is a big fan of the proud dovetail design.

  36. Angie Williams on April 17, 2022 at 6:36 pm

    I have watched this before. Watching again. Still love that hardware. I’m still not going to do dovetails… But I love watching this build.

  37. capitalD D on April 17, 2022 at 6:37 pm

    You mention perhaps a lack of wall storage. I have been making small shelves between the wall studs. A 2×4 and drilled in though the stud to the board. For a bit bigger shelves use a 1×6 or 1×8…..then small board across the front on the stud to keep items from falling – a shim will get that board out even further and make better use if the shelf space. These little shelves are made from scrap wood and really tidy up the shop – small bottles and cans…tools..booze..soda.. tapes and anything small.
    Might work for ya…. cheers

  38. Logan Angus on April 17, 2022 at 6:37 pm

    First video of yours I’ve seen
    Great work and it was filmed so well!

  39. troycleveland on April 17, 2022 at 6:38 pm

    How’d you get that Mr. Meeseeks at 1:36?

  40. One For Paul on April 17, 2022 at 6:39 pm

    Turn the mitre gauge around … why are such obvious things so non-obvious until you learn them!? Thanks for the tip, really like the build 🙂

  41. Adam Anderson on April 17, 2022 at 6:42 pm

    Go Hawks!! 💚💙

  42. Josh Ibbotson on April 17, 2022 at 6:46 pm

    Just found your channel, love your demeanour and work style dude!

  43. R. Mercado on April 17, 2022 at 6:46 pm

    I enjoyed this presentation immensely! Semper Fi

  44. How I Do Things DIY on April 17, 2022 at 6:48 pm

    What’s the trick to getting a chisel so sharp?

  45. David Larson on April 17, 2022 at 6:51 pm

    Great job. I may copy it but make it 48 H x 36 W. It’s beautiful. My dad was a Pattern Maker. He would have had words with me is I used a file like that. I look forward to your Finish video.

  46. vilod on April 17, 2022 at 6:52 pm

    Nice toolbox but you lost me with that foot ball crap. Thumbs down.

  47. Fulcrum205 on April 17, 2022 at 6:53 pm

    Mike Pekovich from Fine Woodworking was the first person I heard of the blue tape trick

  48. Olav van der Spree on April 17, 2022 at 6:54 pm

    That’s some nice editing!

  49. Hey I'm a Maker on April 17, 2022 at 6:54 pm

    3:50 I have that exact same bevel gauge, I got it from my grandfather!

    Love watching your videos, glad I stumbled across it 😄

  50. Houston Kilby on April 17, 2022 at 6:55 pm

    I’ve been making updates and fixing up my tool box’s and cabinets on my channel. Organization is key!
