    Built this Tool Cabinet for the Shop!

    I spent about the last two weeks or so building this tool cabinet for my workshop. It is on wheels so I can roll it around the shop.

    My plan is to learn to build furniture and I am going to be self taught.

    Nicely done Gary!

    Looks like a great deal of storage beautifully housed.

    It is just a plywood cabinet for some shop tools I have scattered all over and making them hard to find and get to. I didn't bother to fill the brad holes as I felt it was just for the shop and not a piece of furniture. I did want it to look nice. Thank you for the kind words.
