It’s a beautiful cabinet. And for nail?
The rest of the shop must be out of this planet.
My dad has a nail cabinet where he accumulated all kind of fastener over the year. Not as beautiful as your though.

Great job.

You turned this storage cabinet into a work of art! Your workmanship looks sensational. And I think four months is pretty speedy for all those hand-cut dovetails! That’s a great story behind the original cabinet, too.

I can understand completely about the drawers because I experienced exactly the same thing with my storage cabinet (which is merely a utilitarian structure and not a work of art).

I solved my problem by hammering in a mark on each drawer box.

Looks wonderful. Maybe better for storing the crown jewels than nails, but we all have different shop standards and yours are obviously higher than mine.

This looks a lot nicer then the original! Every time my wife runs across one of these she says I need one of those so I guess its on my bucket list.

I have several plastic cabinets with drawers that I hold various small screws, nails etc. Your cabinet is way more classy!

Thanks for all the great comments. I consider the cabinet to be a new member of the family. (But should I clean some of the ugly nails before putting them into it?) Yikes!

Very nice work Rich amazing nail bin
