« Part 3: Starting on the interior Part 4 of Wall Hung Tool Cabinet series Part 5: Fitting out the other door »

The cabinet is on the wall and hasn’t fallen off . It’s time to finish the door interiors and install them. I made racks for the chisels and found that by moving the interior door even with the edge of the box I had room for a rack to hang mallets.

I then laid out my squares on the interior door and made hangers for them and installed the door.

Before I can hang the door boxes I need to do something about storage for the #12 1/2 scraper. It won’t fit on the conventional slanted till. I was bothered by all the wasted space behind the plane till when I was installing it. Then the light came on I could build a garage for the scraper. Out came the plane till and start cutting, while the till was out I also made a rack for the chisel mallets and mounted that next to the planes.

It works. Now I can hang a door and start fitting out the second door.

It has been overnight and everything is still on the wall. We will try and finish the second door today.

Great job on the cabinet. As the storage options are based on the individual, yours is designed very well and looks to be quite efficient.
Watching the build has been educational and has given me some great ideas for my cabinet when I eventually build mine.
Looking forward to the rest of the series.
