Craftsman Tool Display Cabinet

Glass-pane doors protect your prized tools from dust, and the Arts & Crafts details improves your shop’s style in this Craftsman Tool Display Cabinet.

The Craftsman style of furniture is one that’s stood the test of time. Even today, you can walk into a furniture store and find examples of this style. So why not bring some of that classic design into your shop? That was the idea behind this Craftsman-style tool cabinet. With beautiful quartersawn white oak, details such as the square plugs, and bold hardware, this tool cabinet not only proudly displays some of your most loved tools, but it also shows off your woodworking skills. Now, all of that isn’t to say that this cabinet can only be used in the shop. In fact, I know many people who would refuse to put a piece of furniture this nice in their dusty shop. I could easily see this cabinet hanging in a home office, entryway, or anywhere else you want to display your prized possessions. As I alluded to before, the construction of this cabinet uses some traditional joinery techniques. Digging into it, you’ll find dado case joinery, haunched mortise and tenons, and locking rabbets. All of these will help hone your woodworking skills. So, let’s pour a cup of coffee, step into the shop, and start surfacing some white oak as you begin working on your own tool cabinet.
