I finally got around to finishing my new workbench storage cabinet. Managed to make it from “free” wood. We have a cedar mill in the area and they regularly toss out pieces of various sizes that have minor defects. I gather it up and plane, cut down ,etc. to find some beautiful wood. Now I have no excuses about locating my tools. I just have to remember to put them back when I am finished!

Very nice. Do the sides slide to the center to reveal more storage? (I’m guessing from the handles.) I really like all the cubbies.

Nice job. I know what you mean about putting tools back.

That’s a nice tool cabinet and every time you do something like that to your shop it becomes better organized and will pay you back with time saved. Good work.

Nice project.
