So. I’ve been busy in the workshop, so busy that I haven’t really had time to post project pictures.
My latest big project has been a hanging tool cabinet. This is yet another attempt to bring my shop into a manageable mess. I adapted this from Fine Woodworking’s plans, since I didn’t have the space for the full-sized version.
I also attempted to do finger-joints for the main cabinet but my skill set isn’t there yet, so it was butt joint with 2x Miller dowels, which seems to have done the trick nicely. I’ll work on the finger joints for the shelves that go in the space for the bottom.
I hung the cabinet with the help of a friend on two sets of french cleats, so it’s solid on the wall. A couple of magnetic latches in the middle do a fine job of keeping the cabinet doors closed.
I still have an inner set of doors to mount in the top area, to provide more room to hang stuff on, but it is nice to have a place for things that’s fairly obvious. I plan on making a more permanent rack for the hammers later.
All in all, a fun build.
As always, comments and suggestions are welcome.
