This tool cabinet is one that was aired on the Woodsmith Shop PBS TV show. I made some modifications to suit my needs. The sliding doors gives two layer storage that facinated me.
It’s consructed of pine and BORG pegboard. I chose the white pegboard to reflect the light better as my aging eyes need all the help they can get.
I used some dado, pocket hole,rabbit, and good old butt joints on this piece. everything is glued and screwed together. I changed the top cleat on the back to a french cleat so that i can move ti to the new shop (comming soon) when it’s built. And I think that it is a bit sturdier.
The stain on the frame and the stain on the door frames are leftover Minwax that I mixed together to use up the little bits leftover from other projects. I can’t repeat it but it looks good and it used up stuff that would have been thrown out.
This was a fun weekend build and as you can see by the photos I am just now adding shelves and moving into this sliding door cabinet.
I special ordered the pegs on line because these won’t fall out as you remove a tool … I will post a tool review later on these … a must have if you use pegboard. ... Comments?
