I left off screwed because I assumed you'd be smart enough to figure out that my criticism applied to a screwed joint as well.

Guess the runs deep in you.

That's because you never supply anything but. You're an asshole, tex. You have the maturity of a fucking 6 year old, and I'm already sick of dealing with my 6 year old.

You can dish it out, but you can't take it.

Who is it that needs to grow up!

Going to get the steel for the locks this weekend.

I'm planning on doing something like a school locker for the doors.

I'll notch the bottoms of the drawers enough that they'll accommodate a 1/4" steel rod.
After that, it's a fairly simple piece (a piece of angle iron that slides up and down in the carcass, with 3 1/4" rods on it). In the "up" position, where it locks, the rods will engage the notches, and the drawers will lock shut.

The only thing I haven't worked out yet is how to transmit the motion to the second set of drawers. I'll either have to have a second lock inside the big cabinet to the right, or use angle that's rigid enough to go across the drawers (which will add weight).

So, I changed my mind and ordered 8 of these.

For $70 (including shipping), I get a single key to open all of the cabinets, and no poor attempts at gang locks.

Those won't hold up outside in NM if your area is already prone to thievery, they are easily opened with a flat head screwdriver. Just FYI.

A lock only keeps an honest thief out, in the best of cases.

As much as I hate to agree here, you're right. Hell, I can pick these easily with a paper clip.

Jewhannukah   farber bait  , you'd be better off with a piece of rebar dropped thru a set of drilled holes in the back corners, and locked under a slab of steel. And none of this will stop them from prying the drawer fronts off and taking everything anyway.

And I can pick a master lock with a diamond rake in about 15 seconds, a combo master lock in about 20 minutes, and a warded "outdoor" master lock with a skeleton key in 2 seconds.

Like I said: a lock only stops an honest thief. My guess is that most will look at the bench, see the locks, and move on to something easier to break into. Besides, those aren't the Gatehouse POSs you sell at Lowe's, and honestly, I doubt you've ever picked a lock in your miserable, chinless existence. If you had, you wouldn't be bragging about paper clip picks, MacDumbass.

Hell, the locks on my Craftsman toolboxes are of no better quality (I even drilled them out once in about a minute), and they've gone unchallenged in all the time I've lived here, right next to the workbench.

Then they can see the claymore mines you set every night.

Wait a minute... Weren't you in Boston over the weekend??


 seriously, the cabinet is a beautiful piece of work. Your wife is gonna love the kitchen cabinets, i cant wait to see that remodel go down.
You have a fine career as a tool bench cabinet maker ahead of you.
