So I have a few hand tools, and I needed to get away from keeping them all over the shop on shelves and any other cluttered surface. I decided I needed to build a cabinet to hang on the wall near my bench. Since I have a ton of walnut I decided to build the case out of that. For the panels in the doors and the back I used VG fir and mahogany veneer glued to baltic birch ply. The inside is all vertical fir which I like for the light color. The tool “hooks” are all made from some curly maple scraps I had laying around.
A common problem I have is getting stuff I build for myself about 80% done before moving on. This project is no exception. I still need to add the finish, add a few more storage options, and add the remaining hardware. Fact is once I got it to this point I wanted to see how it looked with a bunch of tools in it and I haven’t looked back.
