Some may recognize the oak rib and re-used poplar flooring from an oak rib chest I blogged a couple weeks ago.
Same wood, same caul and clamp construction.
It’s a rite of passage to build your own cabinet as a woodworker. Besides, I prefer these dimensions.
The only innovation I attempted was the clamp rack construction on the cabinet’s back side. When the cabinet is in placed against the wall, these teeth-like hooks leave enough clearance to finagle the clamps in and out. The idea has worked well so far—an answer to limited shop space.
Final note: No picture, but the door gap is now resolved

The cabinet is nice, and I very much like the clamp hanging arrangement. What’s even more sweet is your workspace – even tho you indicate it’s small it’s wonderfully naturally lit with what look to be great floors.

Look forward to your posts from the other side of the world!

I liked the way you alsoused the back. I’m short on wall space in my shop, and that’s a great idea. The cabinet came out well too.
