Finished this nail cabinet today. Inspiration from Chris schwarzs’ plans from popular woodworking magazine. The organization of my current hardware cabinet had gotten out of control. See project:

I wanted something off the ground with bails that I could pull out and sit on the bench. I followed the dimensions of schwarzs’ article, but that’s about it. I used pocket screws for the case joinery and excluded the trim work and door. I used pine for the case and drawer fronts/backs. Everything else is plywood I had in my shop. Finished with a coat of boiled linseed oil. I’m storing nails, screws, and pretty much any hardware in it.

That should come in really handy.

I really like the name plate pulls. Where did you get them?

Looks good but I think you have one drawer too many ;)

Very nice. I need one of these. I’m currently have boxes of nails and screws bunched up on a shelving “mistake”. This would be handy to have instead.
