I had built a small cabinet to hold my hand tools like a year ago and it was quickly becoming cluttered. So I figured I would take a couple days off of working on other projects to build this maple tool cabinet. It is far from fine quality (sanded only to 220) but it was a very quick build and it is hidden in my shop so its no big deal. Also after I get the back on it this afternoon Ill finish making a plane till and put places to hang rulers and whatnot.

Nicely done. I’m sure you’ll soon have to build another. LOL

Beautiful cabinet / tool cabinet / hutch, what ever you wish to call it. And it only took a couple of days, amazing. Great work.

Looks good. Still prefer drawers on the bottom so you don’t have to stand on your head to find what you are looking for.
