We now have a plan to go with our clinched tool chest video – click here to download. For this plan we’ve provided an overview of the dimensions I used to give you a good starting point, but if you would like to build something similar then please watch the video as you’ll pick up much more about the construction in there. The plan isn’t overly detailed since it’s intended to be open to your own interpretation; make your chest larger or smaller to suit your needs – it’s really very simple.
Since publishing the video last week it has come to light that the oval nails I used are pretty much unheard of over in the States. I chose to use these only as a cheap and easy to obtain option so please don’t go out of your way looking for them, that would be besides the point! They’re a form of wire nail which are oval in section right through the length – I find this brilliant for clinching as they bend easily in one direction. I’ve heard that cut nails are very much available in the USA so if you can get hold of these then they’ll work great and may even be preferable.
