« Part 5: Tool cabinet #5: Part 6 of Building a wall hanging tool cabinet series Part 7: tool cabinet #7: »

Got another coat of Deft on and reorganized the interior tool placement

Opening the interior panel reveals my mostly metalworking tools, a thin strip jig for the T/Saw, ancient bit brace, etc.,

With the panel closed which I think I will be using most. I hope to have my every day tools close at hand, I still have about a square foot and a half of space to allocate to about 16 more tools I use all the time.

The detail of my modified marking gauge, this puppy won’t roll off my bench again!

My saw till

And coping saw gripper.

Hope you like what is done so far….

Beautiful and well made tool cabinet. I really like your plane storage and everything else as well. I probably ought to build a new tool cabinet. After many years of having it hanging over my narrow bench and getting in the way, I finally moved it and hung all my chisels, files, and stuff on the wall behind the bench. Bad timing, a short time after that I built a new wider bench and now it’s hard to reach my tools!

Just a wee bit more than a “Tool Cabinet”.
Beautifully constructed doors,
excellent interior layout,
nice detailing on drawers.
Good job Sir.
Cheers, Jinky (James).
