This tool cabinet is made of poplar with maple staves. The case and doors are both joined with finger/box joints. The middle shelves on both doors and the main case have through tenons for strength and all others can be customized or removed. The maple staves were cut out of 12/4 and only the outside staves on each door are glued to the stiles.
I used shellac on the maple staves and poplar shelves and painted the rest of the cabinet with Slate colored Milk Paint, mixed with black to darken it a bit, then a coat of linseed oil to protect it and help match the sheen of the shellac staves and shelves. Next step…buy more tools to fill the shelves.
