Sorry about the wait, but it is finally done.

This cabinet has been a fun experience, especially getting to share building it with everyone. I didn’t want to mark it as finished here until I had finished the video. I only had one complete computer crash and two programming errors this time. I am getting better ;)

Please take a look and let me know what you think. If you like it, get everyone you can think of to subscribe (shameless promotion)

Thanks everyone for reading along. I will try to give updates on new projects in the shop. You guys have been the best.

Watch the video again! ;)

Take care and have fun woodworking.

Impressive. Doubt if many tools get to spend their lives in a cabinet that nice.

That came out really well. I don’t think there is anything better than working in a shop where you have nice tools and cabinetry. It just make the day seem better. It really impressed the customer when they see what your tool storage and work area looks like. If he takes this kind of care with his work area. He probably will do at least that if not more with my project.

Yep, if I were a nice hand tool, that’s the sort of home I’d dream of!

Thanks! Great cabinet, in the middle of making one myself, no where close to your standards but at least some place for my tools to call home. Mine will also have some type of french cleat system so another thanks for more ideas to borrow, especially the saw holders! Very good advice on any type of classes, if you get the chance run up to Roberts Creek and check out Inside Passage, that place changed my life!

The French cleat is a very good idea. thanks I’m gonna’ use it. Nice build. It always amazes me the quality of work that some folks produce, almost makes me want to quit, but no, I’m going to slog on. Thanks.
