Step 1: Building the Cabinet
We made the cabinet by using glued up pine boards.
The joints are dovetails.
Cabinet was stained with walnut stain and then finished with one coat of Linseed oil and 3 coats Polyurethane.
The trim was added on the outside to serve as decoration and a handle at the bottom.
Piano hinges hold the two doors weight.
The drawer's shelf was made with pocket holes.
The whole cabinet is hanged with a French cleat system.
Step 2: Adding the Tool Holders
The tool holders took a long time to make because they are all custom fit to the tools.
I especially like the ''floating'' shelves for hand planes.
Step 3: Adding the Drawers
Please check the video for the detailed build on drawers.
We made and added the drawers into place.
The drawers were made with half blind dovetails joinery on the front. We used pine (sides and back), beech (fronts), cherry plywood (bottoms), and teak (pulls).
Step 4: Done!
It was done and ready to use!
We love the cabinet and use it everyday more than we thought we would.
