After my first couple of projects, I was having lots of fun with wood and decided to keep at it. I was also acquiring lots of tools and needed a better way to keep track of them.
I really liked this set of plans for a pegboard tool cabinet with sliding doors. It was certainly more complex than what I had built before, so it looked like a good challenge to take on. Dadoes, rabbets, and grooves abound so my router and I spent some quality time together on this one.
My only regret is that I didn’t totally trust myself to pull it off and didn’t want to spend a lot of money, so I bought very cheap pine for my material and suffered through a few boards that were badly warped or twisted. As such, there are a few ugly joins where I couldn’t get things together cleanly. But the good news is that it works and is more useful than I even imagined.
