Hand tool cabinet coming along

I’ve been working on this cabinet for a while for all of my hand tools, it’s 3/4 finished.
I need a middle upper cabinet, and two door cabinets that open up to reveal yet more hand tools.

Cellphone base

We received cellphones at work to replace out desk phones and landlines in an effort to save the country money so I have this little thing laying flat on my desk all day. I decided to take some scrap material and make a stand for it.

Wood Shrinkage

Here’s a photo now in February of how much my walnut kitchen table has shrunk within the floating breadboard ends. Good thing they’re able to move around or the ends would have cracked the joint.
I expect in the summer they will either come back or even expand past the end caps.

Square mallets

I finished two shop mallets for chisels, joinery and for using workbench holdfasts, one large and one smaller.
Material used was maple with walnut accents. The mortise in the head is angled to match the tapered handle so it can slip out backwards but will tighten when swung.
