I made this compartment box cabinet a few weeks ago for a guy that I work with as a trade for an old engineers drafting table. The cabinet houses 12 compartment boxes that I won in an online auction. The box is designed to be installed against a shop wall, and provides an ideal storage location for small tools, nuts, bolts, screws, and other shop standards…

It’s constructed from 3/4” birch plywood, for the sides and back, and 1/4” subflooring for the compartment shelf.

I have simple plans available in PDF format if anyone is interested.

I’ve provided a video walk around at the link below

Please feel free to tell me what you think about this project, and provide any recommendations or pointers that you may have on building this type of construction.

Please don’t forget to like the video and be sure to subscribe to my channel. I’m in the process of uploading all of my project and tool reviews, and I should have some good content coming out soon..

That would be a nice organizer for any shop.

Well heister, I would rather have this fine box than a drafting table. However, I bet I have more clutter than you do too. Thanks for sharing.

I recently built something similar into my shop shelving and was not sure how to indicate what was in the storage containers.

I decided to color code the handles with tape and write down the contents on an index card. Interested to hear how you plan to tag them.

Nice project.
