Tool Cabinet

Finally finished my tool cabinet. Started with some oak pallets, pulled the nails and planed everything smooth. Practiced some hand cut dove tails. Had to learn how to sharpen my chisels after that. All in all it’s not bad but should last for many years to come. Thanks to everyone else who shared their pic’s. I got a lot of good ideas here. Next project, refurbishing a dove tail saw.

Very nice. I love the reuse. I was pulling nails myself tonight. I think I got a splinter for every 2 nails I pulled.

Greetings bsmith,

Stellar job on the tool cabinet. I like the wood you used from the pallets. Sometimes you can get some really nice wood from them.. A lot of work to clean them up, but the end results are hard to beat…..Thanks for posting….. Rick.

That sure is one wonderful cabinet!
I love the color, the finish, your tools, and that it’s recycle wood.

Great work, Bsmith. It’s always good to see people who love using hand tools. The cabinet looks very nice.

Whenever I see what can be done with recycled wood it makes me think of all the wood that I’ve burned over the years. What a shame- some of the most beautiful wood I’ve ever seen came from “junk” wood or fire wood!
