Taking beautiful MDF burl and artfully framing it in end grain plywood I have come up with my version of GaryK’s Wooten Patent Desk…. better known as a wall tool chest.
Since my son was afraid to enter my shop for fear of being buried alive in a tool quake, I decided to get organized. And truth be told, I was really happy to be building something other than an end grain cutting board.
This tool chest sort of just evolved. I had a pretty good idea of what I wanted in the carcass, but you have to use trial and error as you lay out the way you will mount your tools. The other thing to keep in mind if you build one is that the doors will probably be open as you work on a project, so make sure you have room for them to swing out of the way. It is amazing how much stuff you can get in one, so I think I am going to be pleased with it.
Sorry I painted over the MDF burl…
