Rolling Shop Cabinet

I wanted a storage cabinet to replace my wall mounted shelves and also to try and keep the dust down. All of the dividers in there make sure that everything keeps in its’ place. While technically it does roll, I haven’t moved it since putting all of the weight in it as I have had castors collapse on me before. Just need a spot for my circular saws and cordless drills.

Pretty good, BUT, you should not just put stretchers in the bottom.
Since this is a rolling cart, you should have filled it with a solid bottom, so it won’t rack and gets full support.

It would also keep all the spiders out of the cabinet.

I agree, definately needs a solid plywood bottom…...strength, keep it from racking, keep the mice out.
However after seeing your project, I am now ashamed of how disorganized my shop is and feel like less of a man.

Great organizer and useful cabinet.
I would like to say that storing the biscuits in a drawer might lead to problems.
They swell with humidity as they are designed to do … so keep them in an air tight container. ... I have microwaved them to re-dry them, but this could be a dicey situation, be careful.

If I live to be 100 I will never have enough time to make the things that I am inspired from here on LJ.

Excellent cabinet!

True about the solid floor. I had planned on making it from one piece and cutting a large rectangular hole in the centre, but managed to make the whole thing from one sheet of 18mm plywood. It hasn’t started racking as yet, but I am pretty amazed at the amount of weight that I have put in it. I don’t plan on moving it very far, at least with the tools in it.
