I guess this still isn’t really finished yet.

I’ve been working on this here and there for the last three years, putting aside off-cuts and bits of wood and adding to it when i found the time.

I plan to add at least four full width drawers to the bottom two spaces. And probably some more saws to the insides of the doors.

One day (in the far distant future) i’ll build a stand with a chest of drawers in it.

It’s a wonderful tool cabinet and very nicely done. Congratulations.

Sort of Krenovian? Noticed the tools. They deserve a nice home!

I like the wood hinges too. Very nice touch, and totally appropriate!
