Roll-around tool cabinet

This is a roll-around tool cabinet that is mostly done. It has been a work in progress for the last 6 years (get a little done here and there between paying projects). The only thing left to do is put on the upper doors and some door pulls. The dark wood is bubinga. The light wood is curly maple. The 4 long drawer faces are from 1 board giving a beautiful grain match across the 4 drawers. The upper 6 drawer faces are also from 1 board. The drawer pulls are made from bloodwood with ebony inlay. The upper doors will have bubinga rails and stiles and I’m still deciding on the panel material. The panels will either have inlays of square rigged ships or 3D carvings of a square rigged ship. Eventually the drawers will be lined with forest green felt.

Like I said, it is a work in progress even though I am using it everyday.

LOL, if I had something like that I would never be able to use my tools for fear that something would get dinged or dirty or out of place. Nice job, that’s a beautiful chest.

My that is a pretty tool cabinet. I would hate it the day that I dinged it or scatched it someway. Then again it probably wouldn’t happen because if I made a cabinet that nice it would be in the house not the shop.
