I made this to hold my wood working tools. I used some maple and the doors are made out of walnut and sapele panels. I got some practice resawiing on the bandsaw and I cut the dove tails by hand. This was definetly a skill builder for me. I had a lot of fun making it. I think I am going to make anotheer one to hold my hand planes and drill bits. The plan is to move my automotive tools and box out of the wood shop.
Thanks for looking.

Nice looking cabinets, but Matco screwdrivers?

JK, I bought the same set a few years back when they were on sale.

Man, that cabinet sure came out nice.
And it’s a great way to store those easy to misplace tools all in one spot.
Nice addition to your shop!

Looks great, functional and attractive too. I love seeing postings of these tool cabinets. I need to build one eventually and it’s nice to get some ideas to work from. Looks like a nice set of Japonese chisels too.

Looks great! I would stain the sides to give it a finished look. Only because it looks unfinished when you look how nice the front is. Well done.

I like the look of the doors with the dowels in each corner. Good idea for storage and better looking than my sheet of pegboard.
