I made this tool cabinet to help me keep my tools off the ground and reduce the time I spent looking for them. I took ideas from 3 different plans and combined them into one. Now all I need to do is make some tool holders for the inner doors.

What a great project, How are the drawers attached to the top part of the cabinet? How did you make the doors? Thanks.

I really, really like the cabinet. Having the two sets of doors as well as the drawers gives lots of storage for all your hand tools.

BUT, I’m a bit worried about the hatchet being in such close proximity…Woodworking can be frustrating, so you may want to remove temptation! (not that I’ve ever felt like it, but I have a friend…)

I really could use one like this. I’ve seen quite a few variations on this theme, but yours is my favorite.

Great cabinet. Could you post the dimensions? As organization is not my strong suit I am always looking for projects that can provide more structure to my shop.

This is a great project. It keeps your tools organized and readily available while taking up a relatively small amount of wall space.

Great job. I am going to add this to my favorites as well.
