At last spring! This year’s swedish winter was perhaps not the coldest or the most snowy, but it’s still just as great when spring arrives.

For me it’s also about moving my projects and tools to my “Summer” workshop.
As some of you know, i have two different workshops.In the winter I have my shop in a tiny basement here in my building in the city, and in the summer i move my shop into the countryside to our countryplace. In my Summer shop I have much more space and therfore much bigger machines :) .

Move to a different workshop every six months requires a lot of planning. Earlier this year I made some simple tool boxes which will facilitate the move. Now I intend to make a cabinet for my handtools, well maybe not all the handtools but for the most important. The idea is to make a cabinet that can hang on the wall and you easily can lift down to the trunk of a car or a van and drive to the country and easily put up on the wall at the “summer”shop.

I have searched the internet for inspiration and found that Marc Spagnuolo aka “The woodwhisperer” made a wall hanging toolcabinet which looked sturdy and easy to make. I will make my own interpretation of his design.

I will make it out of 18mm plywood and the dimensions will be 1100 mm x 600mm x 250mm. It will hang on the wall by a “french cleat”.

i´ll keep you updated
