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.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
