Eric, I am all in support for using the so called trash. The wood has got such a wonderful design and you have used it very wisely.

Very nice project. I agree, we can all use more tool space.

Great job on re-useing waste wood.

Scrap woods the best!

Keep it up.

That is a gorgeous tool cabinet. There is a lot to be said for adding both form and function to shop furniture. You have added a tool cabinet to your shop that adds a lot of storage and is a beautiful piece of furniture too.

Nice job on salvaging the wood as well.

Very impressive…and even more impressive when you get the wood for next to nothing, or nothing!
That is one nice cabinet. Lots of style and very functional.

hey eric ,
i know i wrote here yesterday ,
i was #1 for a bit , and then #5 ,
then im gone ?
i had electrical storms for about 2 hours here yesterday ,
and the satelite connection came and went .
must have messed with this !
good to see you are using materials that would otherwise be dumped and burned !
i’ve been in third world countries where the dumps are nothing but blowing paper ,
as even cans are prized , they cut them length wise and make shingles out of them .
it’s strange , that those that contribute the least , dispose of the most !
i read some stats , that we in america , throw away enough trash every year ,
to have a bumper to bumper traffic jam , of garbage trucks ,
so thanks for your help in recycleing ,
and good use of free stuff !
