I built my version of Mike’s tool cabinet. Mine is not as nice as what he built. I contacted him and thanked him for the ideas and inspiration his article in FWW gave me. It works for most of my hand tools. I have some planes stuck away up in the top where the two doors are. I also have the wall cabinet mounted on a ‘ready bench’ below it so that the weight of the wall cabinet is not on the wall. It is fastened to the wall at the top so it can’t tip forward. The ready bench is/was a 9-drawer dresser that I found at the local Restore. It is built very sturdy so it will carry the weight no problem. My little workbench will nest right up in front of the ready bench. I also built a mobile cabinet that has 5 drawers and two shelves on the one side with the other three sides being used as wall space for hanging all sorts of tools.
I have mechanic tools also but they are in a big rolling tool cabinet.
