Woodworkers Tool Cabinet

My 6th Woodworking Project:

The frame of this storage cabinet was given to me by a friends’ father who unfortunately had to give up his woodworking hobby due to progressive illness.

The cabinet top measures 36”L x 28”D x 34”H, a comfortable height for the bench top band saw and sanding wheel. The drawer sizes range progressively from 2-1/2 inches to 7 inches providing adequate room for the various flat tool chests that contain all my woodworking supplies.

The top drawer is felt lined and dedicated to my electronic measuring tools so they don’t get damaged by other tools.

I made the drawers and fronts of 3/4” pine and the three sides are enclosed with cabinet grade plywood.
For a contrasting look I finished the frame and wooden drawer pulls in a black ebony stain. Two coat of polyurethane on all exposed parts gave this project its finished look.

Altogether it took me about 20 hours working time to complete.

It was a my first attempt at drawer making so it was indeed a learning experience but I came through with flying colors. I am happy to report that my friend’s father was impressed with the finished project.

I really do like the looks of that cabinet. I need to make a couple of those for my shop. What is the depth of the drawers? I been looking around on the internet for deferent designs to get ideas of what I would want to make.
