Hand Tool Cabinet

This cabinet has been a many year project and still is incomplete. Woods used are cherry, wormy chestnut, walnut, and bloodwood. The carcase is joined with handcut dovetails, as are the doors. The chisel racks rest on little shelves and are held in position with cherry turnbuttons. The chisel racks are removable and can sit on a workbench with "feet" to hold them upright and stable. I plan to build other tool holders for placement inside the doors and in the back of the carcase. The cabinet is attached to the wall with a French Cleat. Here's hoping it's a strong support!
