Building a Woodworking Tool Cabinet

This is a small workshop cabinet project for my woodworking hand tools, that were initially hanging on the wall with no logic arrangement and ugly made supports.

The cabinet is made from obeche wood, mahogany inlays and poplar plywood on the back and door panels. At first I wanted to use mahogany for the main frame, but didn’t find any good quality boards that time. I bought two initially, and I’m still stuck with them, but they were too twisted, and I wasn’t very confident I could plane them myself by hand or will lose thickness. Eventually I used this obeche, not a good choice for a tool cabinet due to its softness, but one should use whatever has in their hands.

The size of the cabinet, 660 x 480 mm (26”x19”), was determined by the saws. The height represents the Ryoba saw length, and the width was designed in order to fit all the Japanese saws on one door. Depth is 90 mm(3 1/2”) plus the doors 40 mm (1 1/2”). The poplar plywood is 10mm (3/8”). Thickness of the frame boards and shelves is 20 mm (3/4”).

One of the main design feature is the double inlay dovetails on both cabinet frame and doors. I posted earlier this year a video making this joinery more in detail: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dd3BC... This current video shows the steps more quickly. The other feature is the shoji imitation on the door’s panels. Is a simple and quick way to do it with very small pine sticks (3x8mm for the vertical ones, and 5x5mm for the horizontal lines).

My first plan was to use french cleat to hang the cabinet, but it was complicating too much the work, also I would have lost some depth, and I was already working for a long time on this project than initially foreseen. So in the end I build a quick shelf under, to carry the main weight of the stored tools, and held the cabinet on the wall with four screws and washers, with holes on the back panel made larger, tighten just enough to touch the wood and prevent falling, not used for hanging, as the poplar would be too soft.

In the end it came up well, all my main hand tools are in their new house and no more mess on my room wall.
