Here is my Wall Tool Cabinet, made as an effort in my shop reorganization. Last picture shows what was before. The cabinet is made of 3/4” plywood and pegboard. Finished with water based clear finish. I blogged about building this cabinet in my blog here

That is one fine tool cabinet! Great job (and collection of tools). One can never have too much shop space, tools, storage or work surfaces. Thanks for sharing. Play safe.

Shaping up real nice there Yuri, Having a cabinet like this is so great when it comes to getting organized in a small space ! The use of a French cleat mounting design is a great choice for a cabinet with a lot of weight, the whole cabinet turned out wonderful !....ROB

That looks great Yuri. Cabinets like yours are a great way to get alot of storage in a small area. I built something similar last summer. I noticed that you have quite the selection of hand planes. I would be interested in knowing how you built the cabinet you store them in. Do you think you could do a posting on how you made it along with some pictures?

Nobuckle, I have project page with plane cabinet storage here When I was building the cabinet I totally forgot to take pictures. Though it is pretty similar to this wall tool cabinet, but I used 1/4” MDF instead on pegboard for the back wall.

It’s amazing how much one can store in a small amount of space, given a little fore thought and planning. Nice execution.
