Heirloom Tool Cabinet Photos by Rob Brown; Illustration by James Provost When I started woodworking, the only hand tools I had were inherited from my grandfather.I made a cheap chipboard shelf for them, which worked great.
That is, until my hand tool collection started to overflow onto my workbench and assembly areas.I wanted to do something nice, not only to protect my hand tools, but as a showcase for clients to see my work.
Since I have a small area to work in, and wall space is at a premium, I knew I had to be thoughtful regarding the design of the cabinet.Even though this cabinet takes up only 17-1/2" x 36" of wall area, there is more than enough storage space for my current collection of tools, with a little extra room for future purchases.
I also built the interior tool racks with the potential for a large overhaul; more on that later.I think the main difference between my cabinet and many others is the swinging panel.This 3/4" thick hinged panel almost doubles the amount of surface area available, yet it doesn't take up any extra wall space.
