« Part 3: Moving along ... slowly! Part 4 of New Shop Project series Part 5: Move-in Day! »

Cabinets arrived today … these came from RedLine Garage Gear of Green Bay.

Looks like pretty high quality stuff … paint is powder-coat, drawers are dovetailed birch, and the hardware is first rate (full extension drawer slides, euro-style hinges, etc.).

I had originally planned on building cabinets myself, but it would have taken months, and I finally decided I would rather use my time builidng stuff I want to build (cabinets aren’t really my thing)!

Installers are due Thursday (5/31/12) morning at 9am, so in 24 hours, I should be ready to move into the new shop!

I’d have trouble buying cabinets, but that is just me. Have fun.
