Made this krenovian-style cabinet to house some of my more used and favourite handtools. It’s made out of local walnut and finished in tried and true danish oil.

Lovely shrine for the most treasured tools.
Really fine job on that.
Are the saws hanging on magnets?
You have to light a candle and some smoke sticks there, once in a while. ;-)

OK, if you say so, the hinges and screw threw me off:)

Ha ha ha Andre, I was thinking completely different, I was thinking it was nice, that for once it was not too ‘perfect’ and that it gave it a little masculinity…
It was liberating to not see the usual pianos, that I also used on mine.
But I’m Danish as the oil, so I might be under influence…

LOL! I have seen and touched some of his work, read all his books, used hand planes he built, think I have a pretty good idea as how he would critique most work compared to his:) My feeble attempts would maybe get a, 2 out of 10!
When he was in a good Mood? I am sure SK416 meant to imply Krenov inspired? Without actually seeing or very detailed Pictures one cannot truly offer anything other than a humorous remark? But that’s just me!

Appreciate the complements. There’s no way knife hinges would have been appropriate for the design, there’s simply too much weight on the doors to avoid sagging. I did give it consideration but ultimately went with function over form.
