The nicest thing you could say about this is low budget. 2×4’s and plywood, screws, glue and nails. It’s basically frame and panel construction , without the panels.
The only Before pic I can show is #3 in my workshop.. I had been using a USB hard drive as storage. It no longer works, now most of my pics are gone.
My storage for hardware and assorted junk has always been jars and coffee cans, that hasn’t changed. I finally have them all in one place. I can move it out of my way when needed. This could also work for tools, turning blanks, or whatever you need.
I ran the stock through the jointer and planer, then cut tongue and groove joints on the table saw.
I glued the stiles and rails, got the assembly square, and nailed the joints with an air nailer. Cleats are glued and screwed to the inside, and plywood just lays on the cleats.
It seems to be working the way I hoped it would. It’s open enough to see everything, and strong enough to hold anything that will fit. 24” x 24” x 48” high.
On the surface it looks like I’m just adding more stuff to a confined space. All the cans and jars that were on the shelves are now on the cart. Other stuff has taken their place on the shelves. But that’s the whole point. I just stuffed another 10 lbs. into a 5 lb. sack.
