My first try at a wall cabinet for my shop. The case is constructed using maple with simple dado and rabbet joints.
Cabinet closed

The door frame is maple and the panels are hardboard.
Cabinet open

I still need to add some holders for the rest of my hand tools. But I did just get around to routing the pulls.

Nice job! It looks very nice. What are the dimensions? Did you design it or base it off an existing design?
