Hey Lj’s

I have just finished making my tool cabinet! I have not finished putting all of my tools in it yet.
I used Marc Spagnuolo’s plans and made a few changes.
Thanks for looking!

Simple but very nice—particularly like you wood chisels.

That is a beautiful piece! I love that the doors protect and help to keep at least some of the dust out. It looks great Matthew!

also, how did you mount the tool holders on the doors. I built a similiar door for a sanding cabinet, but failed to realize I couldn’t mount anything without it being seen on the outside

@PaulHWood The handels are just two pieces of ply wood laminated together, And used a large router bit to create a L shape. I used 3/4’’ ply so I just used small screws to mount every thing to the door.

I built my cabinet based on the FWW plans but I like yours layout better. Great addition to the shop!
