Moved on to CherryL after that:
Along the way, the outer Oak doors saw some caddy action as well:
And so, it’s done.
Bottom tambor area is less refined:
But the right slider holds the #62 and my Indispensable Jack Plane (T11 #5 Stanley):
So much said over 26 blog posts and 4+ years that doesn’t need to be restated here. The build idea started with a post I made back in January 2012 to Bertha’s blog about his tool cabinet (Plane Hutch and Storage). So it’s been a long road. A hearty “Thank You” goes specifically to BYo (Lysdexic) for inspiration and the Cabinet Manifesto that guided so much of this build. To everyone that commented on the blogs with encouragement, suggestions or just acknowledgement they were indeed still interested, thanks to you too!
The cabinet has some of the ‘Best of the Best’ of my tools, gets locked up every day, and is already indispensable to my workflow. I will not build another. It includes tools from my dad and my grandad, my Summerfield bench saw, unique bench planes and many, many other pieces. All in all, it’s quite complete. The work holders depend on gravity to hold pieces in place, are made of mahogany, and are screwed and glued into place.
I’ve shot some video, and once I get that edited and uploaded to you tube I’ll post it here.
As always, comments welcomed and Thanks for Looking!
