Cherry and Walnut raised paneled Master Woodworker’s Tool Cabinet.

All joints are mortised and tennoned with a small hand planed chamfer detail at every joint. Solid wood construction, (except bottom of drawers).
Basswood was used for drawer sides/backs to offset color. This cabinet will house all my non powered woodworking tools, chisels, planes, marking tools, gauges, bits, hole saws, files, saws, etc….
Select boards were picked to ensure good grain characteristics.
Base framing is solid 2×4 cherry with inset doors. Bottoms and backs are recycled 3/4” T-groove cherry boards planed down to 5/8” (to remove old finish).
This took a solid month of design and planning, and almost 2 months of construction. Many, many MANY hrs!
Finished in BLO, and 2 sprayed coats of poly
I cant stop looking at it. Its been a GREAT project! :) Thanks for looking!!

I rarely comment on tool cabinets, but that is awesome.

Beautiful cabinet, excellent craftsmanship. Something to be proud of, and a fine home for your tools.

Really nice job James.
I thought you’d have never needed another one after that huge one you built 14 months ago.
Those two pieces alone would fill my shop.
Looks like you’ve just about got it filled up too.

Woodwrecker is right. You don’t need another cabinet after building the last one, so to do you a favor I’ll take the big one.
Another fantastic job. I really need to build a better cabinet for myself. Thank you for posting.

Great work on this James. When I first saw it I thought you had taken some high end furniture from the house.
