« Part 6: #6 Part 7 of Building a wall hanging tool cabinet series Part 8: Roller catch details #8 »

The tool cabinet is finally done after 2 months! A lot of of fine tuning where the ‘every day’ stuff was to go in the right hand door, and now

I think it is done.

With the door closed everything fits ‘just so’.
A big thank you for all the LJ’s who have helped me and inspired me to raise the bar and try harder. Thanks for looking.

Doc, No french cleats I used 6, 3 1/2” screws to the studs plus the bottom back edge is sitting on a ledge, so only a gorilla will get it off the wall. My overkill habit from securing heavy metal electrical panels to walls!

Lovely job. Not only is it beautiful, but also very functional and a great way to present your tools.

Why are those 2 hand saws hanging “outside” of the tool cabinet?? Just busting balls. LOL! The cabinet looks great. Well done.

Thanks for all the kind comments guys, @ Bogeyguy ha ha I was gonna cut a hole in the side to stuff them in behind the plane till, but they look so decorative just hanging there I let them be.

Chris Schwarz’s tool cabinet has most of his saws hanging below the cabinet also! They look so good why not display them! Great work on that cabinet!
