    if you let the shim hang down you could use it to hang stuff by using dowels or nails or hooks or whatever

    anyone else notice the use of older projects in the video, the purple wood and the shims. Wonder where they came from lol? You must hang on to every scrap of wood.

    Here in the South I can’t store any paint in my garage workshop because summer heat ruins it. I keep mine inside the house year-round.

    Hi Steve

    What is your link with Scotland? I have noticed the Soltire, St, Andrews flag on your truck bumper/fender on a few occasions.

      It has am/fm radio, which is kind of spotty, but I can plug in my phone or ipod to it.

    Thank you for a great project Steve and for showing some minor mistakes. We all make them and it takes a real woodworker to admit them. I like the orange and I also like how you’re not afraid to paint a wood project. Two thumbs up for this project and video!!!

    Great project. I am in the process of planning a larger version of it for my tools, and it will be a double door version, much like with a dart board. Keep them coming…..! 🙂 TF

    I love the free plans for how to make a box.

    Next week I’m hoping that Steve will offer free plans for how to make a board.

    Rather impressive! Thank you for the article and video. I have learned a bunch of woodworking plans myself recently. This might prove useful to many of you, as it did to me: http://bit.ly/IQjtPE

    Starting at 0:47 of this video you do something that makes me cring. Your right hand is almost directly over the outbound dado blade. As someone who has had an accident with the beast, I can tell you that the most dangerous thing you can do is to put your hand forward of the blade while cross cutting plywood.

    As you send the cross cut of out the blade there is a tendency to for long thin pieces to twist. If that were to occur (experience talking here) the kick back would send your hand right across the blade.

    Sorry for being a wet blanket but shop safety is always on my mind. You might get away with this once or 100 times but it only takes once to send you to hospital and out of commission for 3 months.

    But nice job on the cabinet.

    Personally I think the orange is fantastic – it’s very eye-catching and sure to attract a lot of attention! I had a quick look at a few of the videos too and they gave me a chuckle, you have a great sense of humour. Please be careful and watch your self when working with these tools!

    Is it possible to build this cabinet without the dado stack? They are expensive and I don’t have one. Ido have a router and straight bits. Please help, im a newbie.

      Yes you can make this without a dado set. I just made this without one. Just hide a straight edge with your router and a straight bit to make the dados and the robbers.
