Building Cabinets for Festool Drawers- Getting Started (Part 1 - Making Boxes)

For the first time since morning the wood shop out of the basement and into the new little shop at the Farm - we are building something instead of working on the shop.    

It’s just a quick cabinet project to get all of the tools into visible drawers - but it will be a huge help.  No more running from hiding place to hiding place looking for the right systainer. 

These are the start to 4 cabinets that will be part of the new tablesaw our feed table.  

Up next - using the Festool 32mm system.  I’ve had it for 3 years - this will be the first time using it.   Off to watch some you tubers to get it going. 


The MFT is great for these larger cross cuts for cabinet boxes.  


These Festool drawers are a perfect way to be able to see and access all of your systainers. 


I bought all of these drawers a couple of years ago.  Finally getting around to building the cabinets for them.
