My collection of shaper cutters has grown out of control so they needed a good storage solution.
I came up with this wall cabinet with angled shelves for a better overview. The shelves hook onto the shelf pegs with a groove in the bottom, so they can’t slip and fall.
When i need a cutter i lift out the shelf which serves as a rest, this prevents you from having to lay the cutter on the iron table which had sometimes lead to breaking some of the carbide elements.

The middle section is used for storage of smaller things like spare carbide cutters etc… on the door i hung the tools needed to loosen the spindle.
There is also one shelf reserved for spacing rings, sorted by thickness.

The cabinet is made of melamine panels and the doors out of beech wood.

Below is a video of the construction!
