This is my tool cabinet and my first post. I benefitted lots of projects from this site while making this tool cabinet. I wanted to post mine when I completed. A summary of the project;

Main box is dovetail joinery,
All dividers and shelves are sliding dovetail, housing dado and rebate/rabbet joint,

Left door takes all marking measuring tools, and right side chisels, mallets, hammer, screwdrivers.
Center portion of the cabinet takes all shaping tools; handplanes, spokeshaves, files etc,
Left and right side of the plane till hides two disston hand saw, two richard groves tenon saw, a spear jackson and veritas tenon saw.
Right side (upper) is a drawer and two sides of the drawer takes a coping saw, modelling saws, gent saw, another dovetail saw, and a hacksaw.

When you lift the plane till and tool tray that holds spokeshaves and rasps you reach speciality planes and drilling tools.

All made by handb by resawing a 5,5 cm (appr. 2 1/2 inch) stock with a handsaw. At that time I decided to buy a roubo frame saw kit :) and waiting for delivery.

Very nicely done, ErcanK. The closer I look, the more I see, and that’s a real good indication of the time and thought put into the cabinet.

Doing all the tool holders was one of my least favorite shop activities ever. You did a great job!

Many thanks, actually, design phase took longer than building it. And yes, making tool holders was a bit headache. Best regards

Beautiful cabinet and well stocked too. It’s great to have a place for everything and everything in it’s place so it’s within arms reach. Nice hardware too. Excellent!

I love woodworking, but I don’t keep my tool cabinet in the dining room.

Now that’s what we’re talking about!

I had to smile when I saw a saw on top of the cabinet. Already overflowing, eh?
