« Part 3: Installing doors and drawers Part 4 of Tool cabinet series Part 5: Another delay »

I was able to spend some time in the shop over the holiday and finished getting the tool cabinet together. The drawer fronts are mounted as is the hardware. All glides are installed and the trays mounted in the cabinet section. Next will be taking everything apart, sanding, and finishing. I plan to locate some drawer liner material to put in the bottom of the drawings.

I’d say that was holiday time very well spent.

I was not allowed to enter my shop during the holidays.

That’s fine though, we have family over visiting.

I made a big ugly cabinet for my tools and things and I wood never but it next to your’s. I wood start crying. Your cabinet wood look good in my dining room. It not as easy to make as it looks. Great project.

I’ve seen furniture in stores for sale that did not look nearly as good as your Tool Box. Wow, what a tool box – make sure you clean your tools good before putting them in such a beautiful storage box.

I appreciate all the favorable comments. Any more and I won’t be able to get my hat back on. My wife has made a few comments about such nice oak being relegated to the garage, but I have a motive for putting the time and the effort into the cabinet. Hopefully, it will become and heirloom for my kids. I have some handsaws and a hammer that my grandfather left to me and they are some of my most valued tools. With any luck, my youngest daughter will continue her interest in “helping dad”.
