The tool cabinet

I was inspired by Olivia Pelling’s tool cabinet in her workshop – she got the idea from Merton College where she studied.  It’s a large two-door, very shallow cabinet.  I decided to make mine out of pine, with a clear satin water-based finish.  This will be the centre piece of my new workshop, and will help to keep me organized.  It’s about 150cm high x 120 cm wide x 14cm deep (59’x48’x5.5″).  The cabinet isn’t full yet, but that problem will solve itself with time….
