I was tired of searching through boxes to find things so I created this much needed custom made cabinet to easily find and house all of my pen making stock, gear, and equipment. Shelves are movable. Very little $$$ spent as I mainly used what was on hand to build it. Colors match the rest of the shop cabinets.

Something like this is definitely needed for the ga-zillion pieces and parts that go into pen turning. You’ll probably find that this isn’t even large enough. Nice build

Boy oh boy do I need one of these!! Very nice work.

Would you mind posting a close up picture of how you have the drawers labeled? Just wondering how somebody else organizes and separates their pen stuff.

Very nice!! I’m currently moving into my new shop and decided I needed to improve my organization for my pen turning. Although not completely custom made it’s a start!!
