Tool Cabinet – Hangers All Done

I just spent a couple of hours in the shop and finished off the hangers for my tools.  As a recap, I finished the main part of the tool cabinet a month or more ago, but had a bunch of tools that I intended to hang on the inside of the doors.  I finished that off, and I’m reasonably happy with it.

It’s not super fancy, but there is a place for everything, and it’s all accessible.  I had to fine tune a few holders so that stuff wouldn’t fall off if I yanked the door open.  The mortise chisels were a problem – a fast yank would free one of them from the holder and it would stick in whatever was under the door (a temporary table at the time, but still plenty exciting)

I’m planning on starting on the drawers tomorrow.  I’ll probably use the router bit joint rather than dovetails — I want to finish this quickly and move on to more interesting projects.  This is intended to be utilitarian.  I don’t have a lot of other stuff to put in the cabinet – a couple of extra plane blades.  One drawer will hold my auger bits.  One will hold my carving chisels.  That leaves three more for screwdrivers and other stuff.

  1. Nice, it looks very functional and user friendly . Tool friendly too.

  2. Now that’s a tool cabinet! Very nice! I wish I had thought of the multi lever saw holding grooves for my saw till. Seems like I never have one for the right length of my saw.
