The following photos are of a tool storage cabinet I designed for my 5 year old grandson. I purchased the matched walnut crotch wood 4 years ago from Metro Hardwoods located in Independence, Missouri. I’ve wanted to design a James Krenov style cabinet and when I saw the crotch walnut I knew I had to have it.  At the time my grandson wasn’t a year old yet but I knew at the time that it would make great focal point for this project.   Other projects have come and gone but now I’m  focused on making his tool cabinet. To date, I have 93 hours in the project. Its about as large a project I want to tackle, with my limited shop space. The project started out like most with several sketches and a cardboard prototype.  Please keep tuned in for updates.
