This is my modest tool cabinet. It’s built from all scraps. 1X6 utility pine, water damaged birch ply, cedar from the cutoff pile. Notice on the exterior views, the panels go in opposite directions because that was the way they were cut and lost the least amount of wood that way.
The finish is 5 or 6 kinds of old Minwax stain mixed together in a single can. Water based poly to protect it, (as if it needs protection).
I built this to get an idea of how I want to lay out the next one which will be made from better materials.
It’s still not filled with all the hand tools yet, but it get’s more and more in it all the time.
On the back is a french cleat to hang it on the wall as soon as I find a clear space on the wall to put the other half.
