Thanks. I will be glad to finish off this project. Weather has not been conducive to be milling around outside with the recent snows. Snowing again today.

Good progress today and yesterday. Drawers all installed and handles done. Starting to look like a tooling cabinet now. Next a vertical drawer stop in the back side and installing the 1/8" paneling around 3 sides and the top.

Looking good Chris, that will be a lot of storage in a small footprint!

Thanks. Should take care of all the tooling for the lather and the mill, and dust free too.

That's really cool! And, with those corner joints it'll last forever.

Thanks. It has been a struggle with the snow lately, but I am liking how it came out so far. I found I had some 1/4" plywood I had forgotten about out in the hay barn, so cut to fit width for the sides and put in the wood shop. Tomorrow cut them to length on the table saw.

The tooling cabinet for the lathe and mill is done less the finish on the back and sides. Need some warmer weather for that. did get the front cover on and finished. Made a screw hole layout mistake and had to drill new holes, but it is now covered to keep the dust out.

Next is cutting the drawer liners and level the cabinet then start loading it up.

Hmmm, how soon before it is filled, and you start making another one?

I am hoping it will not get totally filled. All I have to do is not buy anymore tooling.
