I built this tool cabinet for my friends, Roger and Ellie – Roger’s Goddess of more than fifty years – to go along with the workbench shown in the pictures. The cabinet has 30 drawers, five drawers wide and six drawers high. It’s 63” by 24” by 24”. Much of it is made from repurposed materials. The drawer faces came from kitchen cabinet doors. The sides for the drawer boxes were made from a plywood entertainment center and short leftovers from another project. The maple pulls were fashioned after a Matthias Wandel design I found on his site, http://woodgears.ca/. I used hard maple for the drawer runners and most of the cabinet box is birch plywood.
My inspiration for doing it can be found in the last photo.
