I finished and installed a tool cabinet for hand tools. The plan was from FWW and was a simple straight forward build with box joints. I used construction grade ply and maple banding for the edges. I also added a shop logo from my own design.

Very cool—extremely high “useability” index, which is what counts. I find that the more neat and orderly my work environment is, the better my work. I think this tool chest reflects that. Have you seen pictures of the Studley tool chest?
Well done, and inspiring!

That is fantastic. I love how you have merged various tool mounts together. I wish I had all your tools!

wow!, great job!
I really like the way you painted it and the logo. It’s also on my to- do list. I’m getting tired of the peg boards.

Thanks everyone. The cabinet itself was an easy build, it’s the tool mounts that are time consuming. Three-quarter inch ply was used except for the half inch on front and back faces. I would suggest using three quarter on the front, it makes for fewer screw hole repairs when securing mounts!!

The chisel and marking gauge mounts are great, I think I need to remember this post when I get around to building my tool chest. Thanks for the great photos.
