Here are some shop cabinets I just made, finished the last coat of poly last night.
The last pic is the before and after. As you can see, this section of the shop (metal working/sharpening) really needed some help.
The construction is very simple, cleats glued in with brad nails. plywood face frames also glued and nailed. The door is simply a plywood panel with strips pin nailed on to make it look like frame and panel.
The construction method used was inspired by Tom Clark’s book. He is a LJ and self publishes a book on fast to build, durable shop cabinets. I recommend it.
I bought a load of scraps from a guy and the curly maple strips I used for the door came in handy. Adds a nice touch for very little money and effort.
I know, I know, I’m putting a bunch of flammable stuff near the grinder… I don’t grind very often, the sparks usually fly in the other direction, and I think the doors will help keep the flammables safe.
Questions and comments are welcome.
Thanks for looking,
