Just finished up my new tool cabinet yesterday! Thought I would share. The box is made of 3/4” Baltic Birch with box jointed corners. All the interior dividers, drawers, shelves etc are also constructed of various thickness’s of Baltic Birch as well. It is finished with two coats of General Enduro Semi Gloss Pre-Cat Urethane, sports continuous hinges on both the large and small doors, and has brushed nickel knobs on the doors and drawers. The large and small doors are held shut with 5/8” rare earth magnets that are covered with felt pads to give a “cushioned” feel when closing. The plane cubbies have ribbed rubber liners and the drawers have “Kaizen” foam inserts. As you can see, I have just started making the holders and hangers, and when finished the cabinet will hold over 300 tools. On the back wall of the inner cabinet are all the measuring tools, and the set of Lie Nielsens are hung through a hanger bar and secured with small rare earth magnets on the lower bar. Much work remains to hang all the tools that have been languishing in jumbled drawers; can’t wait to “really” get it done. Thanks for looking!
