Well, now that my workbench is finished I can finally start on some badly needed tool storage and organization.
I have been tossing around ideas for a tool cabinet for a while now but have put it off in order to not get distracted and prolong the bench build. Basically I am wanting a cabinet that can be mobile (I am a renter and in the Military so my stuff will have to move eventually) It needs to be able to hold a large amount of tools in a central location. Be a cabinet rather than a chest because I know how I work and I would end up just piling a bunch of stuff on top of the chest which I would then have to move anytime I needed a tool out of the chest lol.
So here are a few inspiration pics.
I would like to develop some type of removable leg structure similar to this..
The shape of the cabinet will be similar to this one I already have with the dimensions tweeked a bit to fit some of the bigger tools into..
And (not that my skills are anywhere good enough to actually pull this off) try to develop the tool storage in a Studley type fashion. I really like that there is NO wasted space in his box and everything has a place and is easily accessible. Plus it is just damn sexy to look at..
So to start things off I picked up about 19bf of Poplar today to get things started.
Now to get my tools together and get some plans drawn up.
