there is a plan in one of the woodworking mags from the last 6 months (i think) of a tool cabinet with dovetailed slatbacks…the back attaches to the wall, then the sides and door attach to the back with cleats. You organize the tools using slide in holders, then secure the sides and door.

I am using the same principle for my daughters shadowbox pinholder, but now I cant find my magazine that had that…hoping maybe one of my LJ buddies may have seen it too.

I dont think it was on any of my electronic libraries…but at this point I cant be sure.

if it helps, I am really thinking it was in an issue of Woodsmith. But it could be WOOD too. I got a couple issues once from the local library, so it could have been in there…..

I haven’t seen anything like it, but by the sound of it, it’s a “shopnotes” kind of a project. they seem to like modular designs.

edit: shopnotes/woodsmith/wood (same publisher I believe)

ok…looks like I found what I need. It appears from searching that this is actually part of one of those Best Ever books…I think I found it…now I just have to dig through my mags and find the magazine….

for those of you who are interested in this design…this is probably the magazine you are looking for:

Magazine Linked because of size.

well i got home and excitedly looked through the magazine I thought it should be…no dice…so im back to searching again…on recollection, the cabinet is similar to this, but I think it had some planes and such in there as well, it was wider…grrr…too many magazines they are all starting to blur together….

The picture you posted came from an old “WOOD” magazine—one of the 1990’s issues. Not sure about the date—I have the magazine in my collection. Wood built about 3-4 new shops back then, and I remember reading it. I’ll see if I can find it tomorrow, and let you know. I have every issue from 1991-2009.

It was called the Universal Wall-Cabinet System. Here is the link to purchase the plan.

I built one several years ago and love it.

thanks all! I am thinking I saw it in one of those conglomoration books that the magazines put out…thanks all for your help and information…it just really bugs me that I cant find it now, and I thought it was done in a recent article. The one I saw had tips for other things beside drill bits, it had planes and hammers and things…I thought…

again thanks all

yea, there is no way I was looking at that issue then…it had to be in one of their conglomeration books they publish…I go on library binges, so it was probably a book from there…thanks all…
