Here is the tool cabinet that I made myself for Christmas. It’s red oak and oak plywood. The finish is Minwax Red Oak stain and polyurethane. Got the plans from Wood magazine. Think I will try making something similar to go in the house as a pantry.

That really looks nice. I like having nice looking things in the shop. You’ll probably use it more.

There is a fine tool cabenit for sure, and it will find lots of use in your shop. Sliding doors vs: swing doors, will the debate ever end??
Are your drawers on metal guides or slider rails?
I like your choice of oak for the shop … it reads strength and longevity.

Grumpymike, Thanks for the comments. I used metal guides. The plans called for the hinged doors. Didn’t think about sliding doors, but wish I had. The doors don’t want to stay open. I still need to install some magnetic catches to keep them closed.
