« Part 2: Traditional German Tool Cabinet Part 3 of Traditional German Tool Cabinet series no next part

So someone asked about seeing tools, well the one I built is unfortunately at the moment redundant, and the shop where I work has existing cabinets. They are probably 60 years old or so, but that does not matter, this is a Traditional cabinet, and things do not change much in tradition. ;-) I would also like to mention that the pics are from 2 different cabinets.

As well I would like to cover a variant of the door design, instead of a mostly hidden endgrain hardwood munton, this version uses a rather wide bread board similiar construction. Works just as well, and as some of you may have already noticed, the doors utilize 2 boards, which is also different comparied to my design… there is really no wrong or right, just two different way of solving the same problem… I like mine better, but I am partial.

Nice job Nicholas. I think one of the best things I did for my shop was to build a wall tool cabinet. This will serve you well.
