Alright so I was tired of my tools being scattered across numerous drawers, tool pouches, my truck, you get the idea. So I researched various tool cabinet builds and came up with this. It is mostly built off of the quixk build tool cabinet from fine woodworking only I added my own tweaks. This was mostly built from junk cull lumber from home depot, that’s why you see the amount of black walnut screw plugs in it, lumber was warped severely. Like those saw and framing square slots? I left an open spot for the future No 8 hand plane that I intend to buy, so far I have a few small planes, no5, no6, no7, and a handyman that I got with my Javelin bass boat, go figure. The lower part was built from scrap reclaimed red oak and I am kicking my-self for burning through the residual of that because I need it right now for more important projects. If you look closely you can see how I used short scraps to make the top and drawer fronts. Knobs etc came from my grandfather’s stock of random accessories, probably at least 50 years old.
