This is another tool cabinet that I built to utilize the wall space and get the most out of it. I combined a couple of ideas from different plans to get this and it has worked out well. Now if I can only keep putting my stuff away instead of putting it down anywhere, I can save time by not looking for what I just used.

Nice tool cabinet & well organized tools otherwise easily misplaced.
I sometimes, spent hours for locating small but very important tools like drill bits & alllankey…

The piano hings and pegboards are a great touch. It’s always fun to use our tools to build things to store and organize our tools so we can make room for more tools, dontcha ya think?..............

That is a really nice looking tool cabinet. I hope to build one something similar one day.

This looks great. I built one just like it minus the drawers on the bottom. I think the plan was in a WOOD magazine. I use mine for hand tools as well. It might get an upgrade soon.
