You don't absolutely need doors; you could hang curtains in the openings mounted on spring compression rods.

Jeff those are not your ordinary cabinets, with the wonderfully strong construction they look like professional bases for serious work benches. Or maybe a tornado shelter. You do GREAT work WOW! I am so impressed, but not jealous, no not all, nope not one little bit, mine are particle board. smiley=thumbsup.gif

Nice. They should handle the weight of tools well. That can be a problem with used kitchen cabinets. Particle board sure does warp nicely under load.

Very impressive joinery, I like your mill mortising machine. Did you cut your tenons or use floating tenons?

Your cabinets show all the quality of a cabinet makers bench.

Donald...loose tenons.  Much easier that way!  The joints all have a dado or rabbet to support the joint in one direction, the tenon aligns it in the other direction.  Good fit on the tenon thickness assures alignment, the width of the tenon not so important due to the dado/rabbet.  Using epoxy any gaps in the width are filled with strength...not foam  Wink
The "mortiser" is an old tool & cutter grinder.  Handy for sharpening, but works pretty good for mortising too.  I did have to make the end mill holders for it, and top speed is only 3500, but that is plenty fast in actual use.

You might concider a branding iron  or maybe someone could direct you to a place that makes brass tags that you could mount on the outside.

Finally finished this project Roll Eyes  The drawers are redwood with maple inlay.  The doors are oak plywood with black walnut edging that stands 1/8" proud of the door face.  Just trying different things on the shop cabinets.

Thank you all.  Took me a while, but have been doing a lot of bike riding.
The top is 3/4" plywood with 1/4" hardboard glued on top.  Oak edging screwed on so it's a little easier to replace.  Now I got to finish those collet holders!
