Shop Cabinet

I saw this cabinet on Tommy Mac’s wall in his shop so being that I am tired of all my hand tools everywhere, I thought I would build one for my own. Anyway, I had some birch PW lying around and trimmed it with some walnut. I made the chisel rack removable, its 36W X 90L 8D. I really like the fact that everything is in one place vice being scattered around in different tool boxes. I left a empty space for a Bad AXe 16” tenon saw. (wish list)

Nice cabinet! one change I may have made would be since the plane and chisel boards are slanted, there is wasted space behind them. they could easily be hinged to lift and have a bit more storage. Great work, my shop is in need of something along this line. It is on my shortlist between actual job projects.

Why didn’t I think of that. Damm good idea Ben. Now that you bring it up I will store small stuff that I don’t use much behind the chisel rack.

That’s a great cabinet, Joe. I’m trying to build one for my hand tools, too, and you’ve given me fresh inspiration. Nice work.

How steep is that angle the planes are on? Looks steeper than what I was planning. Or do you have a rare earth magnet behind each plane? Saw the Woodwhisperer did that on a case he built.

I have one half built, and was trying out different angles to see what worked best to hold my larger planes as well as shoulder and bullnose planes.

Looks great!

I think it’s around 60 degrees. It’s a tad steep but it’s based off height and depth. There is enough lean for them to be secure.

Thanks Joe! Looks like it is more than that, but hard to tell from photos.

Nice!
I’m making the same tool cabinet! How many sheets of ply did you use? Just to save me the time of adding them up.
Thanks for sharing!
