Built this tool Cabinet out of prefinished plywood. Really loving it. The ruler on the outside door is a perfect straight edge and it just wouldn’t fit on the inside.

Great looking cabinet! How deep is it?

From the second photo (with your gorgeous plane collection) it appears to be much more than 12”, but that might be an illusion due to the slope of the smaller plane storage. The photo of the left hand door, the angle of the plane rack looks much steeper, so it might only be 12” deep.

nice… I need to do something like this.. I have some cabinets but the space is not used in an intelligent manner. making a couple like these would go a long way in getting rid of so many small items… good job!

Ken, this is a very practical tool cabinet and you have gone to a lot of effort to maximize the efficient use of the available room. It will pay off by saving you lots of time while working with your tools not to mention it will also protect them. Congratulations.

The cabinet is 11” deep and each door is 2.5” deep. Behind the hand planes is more storage. Its where I keep all my sharpening stones and other sharpening equipment.

The handplane rack angle is 24 deg. attached to a 3.5” deep shelf for the #7 hand plane.

Thanks for the kind words.

A nice cabinet for keeping tools in one place. I need to add one of these to my project list.

Have your say...
