This is my latest project and I am very proud of it. It is a hanging tool cabinet made out of cherry with raised panel doors made from book matched cherry crotch. The doors are mortise and tenon with mitered beading and the dental molding was hand cut with a hand saw and chisel. On the inside there are two hand cut dovetailed drawer made from aspen and cherry with a 1/8” book matched cherry crotch veneer. The back is splined with hand chamfered edges. There is one permanent shelf and three adjustable ones. It is finished with a traditional finish of boiled linseed oil and finalized with a coat of wax.

Way to nice for a shop, that should go in the kitchen or bath.
Wonderful job.

Beautiful cabinet Rodney, the crotch is very eyecatching. I’ve used the same finish, it is simple and elegant.
A sidenote; I wish I had some molders and planes like yours.

Has all the markings of a fine project. Well thought out plan, bnice wood selection and grain match (love the bookmatch doors) and a great finish job. If your proud of it you should be.

Very nice cabinet and I am very jealous of the collection of planes you have. Major tool envy here. I don’t have any cabinet that nice in my house. Beautiful cabinet. Love that curly grain.

Cool cabinet…and I like the way the doors disappear when you open them. I wish all cabinets had that feature. ;) And yess I too am jealous of the things you are putting in the cabinet.

Nice work Rod. Having a cabinet like that in your shop with let other people see the quality of work you are capable of doing.
Most of my cabinets in my little shop have been made out of necessity——-used scrap lumber to make, finished with whatever paint or stain I had left over——-When I see projects like this I am in envy——-wishing mine looked that good !

My that is pretty. Good job.
And that is a cool technique of doing the half blind dovetails.

Thanks for all the comments. This cabinet was built as a “prototype” for a class I teach. I will use it here at the store to put my hand planes in but you could use this in a kitchen, bathroom, shop, or anywhere else you would like. I own the Woodcraft store in Chattanooga and inside the store we have a 1500 square foot facility that is used as a school called School at Narrow Bridges. Maybe one day I can retire it to my workshop at home but until then I will use it here.
