My wife (and I) wanted more cabinet storage in our garage. I hate open shelving as it gets dusty and cobwebs, etc. I have really tall garage ceilings – might as well build up. These are pretty tall – but I will only place storage things up there that receives seldom use. Or the kids’ sports gear and stuff in the off season.
I had a week off from work last week, so to the shop I go. Pretty no frills cabinets. They match all my other cabinets in my shop. Birch ply bought at Menard’s (big box store in the Midwest). Maple framed door with 1/4” birch ply for panels. Adjustable shelf pin shelves. Frameless fully overlay euro hinges. Hung with a cleat in the back. I now have 8 cabinets total with plans to build one or two more down the road.
She wanted storage. Storage she shall have. LOL!!!
One tasty tidbit: I found nice, cheap full overlay euro hinges at Home Depot. Liberty is the brand. Full adjustability same as the expensive ones. Literally half the price of comparable Blum hinges. A pack of 10 PAIRS was $20. They are not the snap in kind. But really that only helps when first assembling them. So, took just a touch more time per door, but great savings.
Another tidbit: LOVE my new shop apron from Duluth Trading Company!!!
