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.
