Only going to be staying in the house another five years or so. What was the other problem? Oh. yes. The concrete wall is collapsing.
Wouldn’t it be nice if a variation could be a freestanding cabinet that could be moved as needs be?25 November 2015 at 9:21 am #132710George BridgemanParticipant
I also can’t hang it on the wall in my shop. I’m going to build a simple cabinet like Paul has for his, then rest the tool cabinet on top.
The alternative is to extend the carcase, making it much taller so you can add cupboards at the bottom. Have a look at this for an idea: http://www.finewoodworking.com/item/32396/tool-chest-with-an-arts-crafts-legacy

Or build a second slightly deeper one so you can stack them.
Double fun !

You can make it in the style of Kresnov (names probably wrong) in that you can build a stand that holds it. Cabinet on a stand. Rob Cosman’s tool cabinet sits on a long table and doesnt hang on the wall.17 December 2015 at 3:47 pm #133228stevewalesParticipant

I am going to make a freestanding cupboard loosely based on Paul’s design. Where I am struggling to find a solution that does not involve me balancing on a ladder is the marking and cutting of the pins on a piece of wood that is 1700mm tall. Do you have a suggestion?
