This is a super easy-to-make storage cabinet you can build in a day using half a sheet of plywood. More information about this project and free plans.

I’m digging the ‘Mere Mortals’ orange color. I can’t figure out if you like bright colors, or if you just like controversy though.

I enjoy color controversy, in fact you should have called it a “storange” cabinet..

I’m surprised it took you that long to do the backwards blade thing. We’ve ALL done that one. I did that again a week ago in the middle of teaching a class. One of the students pointed it out to me before I closed it up. Ya just laugh at yourself and proceed on.

OK Steve, at 3:11, was that the tape or was that you? Ha ha ha.

Thanks again for sharing reality.

Steve, love the projects! When I first met you there was a mad hunt going on for the “Ted Woodworking man,” ...once we moved past that insanity I found some great stuff! Keep ‘em coming.

Great video. As always. And of course… your sense of humor never disappoints. Love the time capsule bit. Cant wait for next weeks project. You had the purple bench, now an orange storage cabinet… what’s next? (hint… pink is my favorite color) ;)

I think the orange color is cool! But the hinges don’t look like they can support the weight of those cans though. While watching the video I was wondering why you glued all the sides together (not a very convenient storage box if can’t actually store anything in it LOL), but I guess your method is a little quicker – and definitely more accurate – way to make sure everything is the same size and fits flush. Although I’m not sure if I want to sacrifice the duct tape! Keep the videos coming!
