This is made from Cedar and Hard Maple, no hardware for assemble, just the piano hinges. for the drawers I used dented of 1/4 and wooden runners. work quite nicely with some table top wax for smoothing running.

Very nice, Jorge. I really like how its organized, I can imagine how my tools would go inside Nice design. So what’s in the bottom?

the bottom has different cases for power tools, drils, jig saw, circular saw, grinder, dado set, sanders, and more stuff… it’s on casters, easy to move if needed.

That’s a gorgeous tool cabinet, Jorge. I especially like the doors inside the doors. It looks very well organized. I also like that you’ve used the tracks on the outside doors so that you can rearrange tools as needed in the future.

Jorge, this tool cabinet is beautiful and I just made it a favorite for reference. Thanks. It’s so functional and organized.
