    Hanging hand tool storage

    I noticed a thread where a couple of guys said they needed to build a tool cabinet for their hand tools.

    Coincidentally I had been looking in some past magazines for a idea on one for myself. I don't have a lot of old tools, but the ones I do have were given to me by my father and a couple of those were his fathers, hand planes, squares, marking guages, a few chisels, a cabinet scraper, spokeshave, etc....so it has crossed my mind I should build something for these tools other than in the bottom of a drawer in my shop.

    Fine woodworking magazine (#188) has a nice article on a wonderful tool cabinet....probably way more than I would ever need, but like I said I'm looking for ideas.

    Anyone want to share pictures of theirs and maybe some likes/dislikes of their design?

    Thanks.

    Thats something I've been wanting to do also, but no time.
    Currently I just have a couple of upper kitchen cabinets [misfits I mismade ] to store my set of type 13's and some other stuff.

    Would the cabinets that I described (and built) in this thread (http://familywoodworking.org/forums/...read.php?t=294) work for you Steve?
    Cheers, Frank

    That tool chest won't work for Steve, it specifically states "Studley".

    Well this one ....

    ... is mostly made of Ash.

    One thing about my cabinet is that I have not put in any storage for planes. I don't have that many compared to some folks, but enough that I knew it'd fill up a cabinet pretty darn quickly unless you made the cabinet big, and I just wanted it modest sized.
