Made from 1×10 and 1×4 Pine, just a cabinet for my tools to call home. Hinges are Piano style. Latches will close the door up tight. Working on arranging things a little better. cabinet is about 3’ tall’ by 3’ wide…and about 14” deep.

Finish is a brushed on-wiped down coat of the Witch’s Brew. about half BLO, there rest is about every flavour of stain that came through the shop. There is a Build-along Blog about this cabinet…

Thanks for looking in.

Looked like quite the journey, good to see you got the better of it. So is the shop cleaner now that you are done? Some of the build pics made it look like any space was already busy.

Good to have tools behind doors to avoid all the dust, etc. This looks like a great solution.

Good job Bandit. It took some time to get it done, but it looks nice. Now it will be easier to find things.

Considering THIS is how things were, before the cabinet was built…The Before

And The After..

Same spot….look a bit better, now?
