Hand Tool Cabinet

Recommended Posts

I like how much storage you got in the doors.  I like the brass pins that hold the shelves up (where'd you get those?).

And the shelves on the left hand door - do they have groove/trays in them?  Did you do that with a dishing bit?

Wow, great job, Eric. I envy your hand tool collection! I really like the drawer joinery. I'm thinking of doing the same thing on the dresser.

When LV says their biggest shoulder plane is large, they mean it.

The shelf pins and sleeves came from Lee Valley...

Yes, the little shelves have grooves in them so my rifflers don't roll off. :)  I just used a 1/4" groove bit.  Maybe it was 3/8".

You're love of the craft and the materials show through on everything you build. All I can say is Beautiful.

Sure hope you took as much care fastening it to wall as you did building it.:P

Thanks guys.  I've been on OCD overdrive the last few weeks trying to orgo the guts.  I've been having nightmares, seizures, burns when I pee, etc.  I'm really glad it's over.  I've been putting this project off for years and I finally realized why!

Yes Lyle, it's hung on a French cleat that is mega glued and screwed.  Ain't goin' nowhere.

Eric shall hereafter be known as Eric O. Studley! That is a beautiful piece of craftsmanship, my friend! Tell me, are there magnets, or some other gadget to hold the stuff in the doors in place if you swing them open too quickly?
