Decided to use most of this winter for shop projects. Built this tool cabinet from Birch ply, edged with Ipe. Walnut drawer fronts with turned walnut pulls. Pretty proud of this actually. Needs more tools! Still working on the organization…

Nicely done! Given the state of disorganization of my shop I can’t comment on the organization of yours!

More tools, definitely. And lay on the pride, thick—- if only for the well-matched drawer fronts…

Wonderful tool cabinet, and I really like your tools, mainly that little slick on the right hand side of the cabinet,
great cabinet for some wonderful tools. Thank you for sharing and causing just a little bit of tool envy. Hope
you enjoy many years of adding to and using those tools.

Excellent cabinet! I think it will be a good thing that you left room for more tools.
