I made this for Bobasaurus for the winter surprise swap. It is a small parts cabinet. I made one these for myself over thirty years ago and still use it daily. I thought it would make a great swap item as most of us collect a lot of hardware bits over time and never have enough storage for them. The wood is beetle kill pine.

Perfect for all those small parts.
I like the drawer design.

Great idea for storage and incorporating the pull out as part of the drawer

is great planning. Very nice Bondogaposis.

This one was original. Loved it and I’ve never seen pine like that so that’s a double bonus plus it kept the weight down some.

Thanks. I bought a dumpster load from a drawer company last may and still have 10 boxes left. see my simple cutting board project and $20 plan project. so I am looking for more and more small ideas. thanks this fits just the idea of pick up the pieces and go I can use. I am getting tired of the plastic boxes for parts. I have already made panels from the different pieces and the boxes here are motivating.

Bondo, that is a beautiful cabinet. That will really come in handy in his shop and look good too! I also like the drawer design.

I like the design with all the different size drawers. Sure will hold a nice assortment of miscellaneous parts.

This is a great storage cabinet that could be used in most any shop.

It is an incredible tool chest, and probably takes the cake for sheer volume of a swap item. It proudly sits in my shop holding my flex shaft rotary bits, which were previously in a big pile. Thanks a lot bondo, I can tell a lot of time and effort went into this item and I’ll use it well.

You didn’t mention the sweet birdcage awl you made me as well:

It’s really well made, love the handle especially.
