This is a tool cabinet I just finished made from cherry with a few parts made from plywood with cherry veneer. I did the marquetry a few years back and it sat under a bed until I decided to use it on this project, it was one of the first marquetry pictures I ever did. The carving was my very first attempt at relief carving, I had an idea in my head and just went for it. My tools were always getting cluttered on my bench and I needed a solution so out of necessity I made this cabinet. I had a few bumps along the road that were a disappointment ( the whole thing took a fall during the finishing) but I know have a place to put some of my hand tools with room for some of the other planes I plan to acquire sometime down the road. I did a short blog on the construction for anyone interested.

Ospreys naturally make great for great subject matter, but this is incredible. The carving…the marquetry…amazing. The talent on this site is mind-boggling. I miss Montana now. Badly.

Lots of good stuff to observe in this posting. I really like the marquetry and carving, well done! It is also cool to get a view of some of your hand tools. Looks like plenty of room for more tools in that cabinet!

You must really love those tools. I believe a toolcase of that caliber deserves a toast and party!

I know what you mean by things going wrong during a project….turns your stomach doesn’t it? I would bet that most of us has had that happen at least once. Very nice project here! One of these days I’m going to have to address making a large tool cabinet(s) of sorts, but that will follow the re-do of the walls in my shop. I particularly like the marquetry you used on your project.

Think I’ll go to the blog and check it out.

This is awesome. I’ve been an osprey fan since I was a little boy. Even now my kids and I make trips to the river to see if the osprey are back in their nests every spring. Very nice craftsmanship!
