« Part 3: Tool cabinet #3 Part 4 of Building a wall hanging tool cabinet series Part 5: Tool cabinet #5: »

Starting at the bottom I decided on three drawers, here are the parts for one drawer

And the finished drawers in the cabinet. For the pulls, I used ebony piano keys cut down, drilled and tapped, and fastened with 6-24 screws.
To create a chisel till, I decided to use double roller catches repurposed, to hold the chisels firmly in place on my door. Here I am screwing on the catches and next pic, the finished product – I am happy so far…

Checking to see If the door clears the drawer pull, and knobs of the planes, when I hold the door shut, One more thing checked off the list!

Thanks for looking guys,, and don’t be shy about making suggestions!! ..Later…

That’s gonna be top notch. I’m working on one as time permits but not at the level of yours.

Looks like you have some nice tools for it as well.

Thank you for your encouragement guys. I feel that as time goes by, I am improving my skills little by little, I still make dumb mistakes though,, and I cover them up or remake as I go.

Wow! You’ve made some great progress there. I really like the way it is turning out. Have you thought about putting any crown molding on the top of it? Either way it looks fantastic. Can’t wait to see the finished product hanging in your shop.

Brit, Hmmm crown moulding,,,, I want to be able to shove stuff on the top after the photos are taken, so for now I will leave that out, but thanks for the thought.
