Tool Cabinet Supports

Moving the cabinet around to install hinges, shelf supports and doors has become quite a challenge. There isn’t a scale nearby, but even before tools are placed inside it’s quite hefty. Fortunately there are supports to be built that will fit underneath.


The supports consits of a pair of dovetailed boards with a brace. The dovetail is unique and was fun to make. I admit that I did have some trouble getting the angles correct on the brace and the fit is not as snug as I would like, but there are plenty of lessons in mistakes.Unfortuantely I only have the three photographs that I took while making the parts.

    Probably the best looking supports I have ever seen.

      I’m very happy with them and have no concern filling the cabinet with tools.

    I’m putting that joint on my list of joints to make — very cool looking!

    Beautiful joints, and they look perfect for the function. How did you join the angled brace?

      They are mortise an tenon joints, unfortunately I was focused on the joint and forgot the pictures. Took some work to get the angles right and a decent fit. Thanks for commenting
