I’ve been lazy about posting projects but I have enjoyed checking out what all the woodchucks out there have been doing. This is a simple cabinet I built awhile back to hold planes and sharpening supplies. Made it out of some southern yellow pine I bought rough sawn from a local sawmill. It follows the theme of using native yellow pine in the shop where I can. Like most of the things I make, I didn’t have a plan. I worked from the wall space I had available and the materials I had to work with.
I want to thank Div, Mads, Dennis, and others for getting me to clean-up and tune up some of my old planes. There is really nothing like making fine ribbons of shavings with a nice hand plane.
The lower cabinet was originally built and posted as a cabinet for a small metal lathe I had purchased. I decided it was just too nice of a cabinet for that so I made a different top and use it for storage and modified a metal cabinet for the lathe. The small walnut 21 drawer cabinet was something my Dad made many years ago and I ended up with and am very proud to have.
