Well finally got everything finished. Here is my version of a Nail Gun Cabinet. The top and sides are Hard Maple.
For the shelves I used Santos Mahogany and for the dividers some 3/8 Cherry. The panels are mahogany crotch.
Crown moulding is Africian Mahogany. Now the nail guns have a new home. I did a build blog if your interested.

I like, I like. This is something I need to do in my shop. Everything in one place, easy to find and easy to return back where it belongs. Every tool should have its own home, or that’s the way i think. Great job

Your nail gun cabinet looks 100x better than the cabinets in my house! Very nice looking cabinet. Are the dividers removable, set in dados?

This cabinet will definitely pay you dividends in increased organization and saved time. Congratulations.

Great project and wood choices. The best part is that with the doors closed, the wife won’t have to ask those kind of questions like “why do you need so many nail guns?”..............................

Bing, the dividers are set it dados, they are about 3/8 longer in the front curve, glued and pin nailed in, had to just trim the excess lip off, put on the face frame.

Nice. That would go real nicely in my formal dinning room.

Rasp, there are 16ga nails, 18ga brad and staple up to 2 inch, and 23ga pin nailers up to 2 in and some stainless pins as well. The Nikle and Grex guns are my favorites. I will say the new Bostich guns are coming along as well.

Beautiful work. Looks like you could store fine china in that cabinet. But all of us hear know that our tools are much more valuable than fine china, at least to us.
