Fine-Tool Cabinet

This easy-to-build cabinet is the perfect place to organize and show off your fine hand tools.

This tool cabinet proves that a great-looking project can be easy to build and completed in a short amount of time. At its heart is a grooved back panel that accepts a variety of custom tool holders. The back is wrapped by a simple case with an open display shelf. A pair of glass pane doors keeps out dust and still lets you see the tools inside. Part of what makes this project simple to build is that it can be divided into three sections: the case, the doors, and the tool holders. And you’ll find that even the joinery is straightforward.
