This is a shop cabinet I built from plans I found in ShopSmith magazine. It was my first attempt at mortise and tenon and dado/groove joinery. Has been very useful. The adjustable shelves are a little flimsy since they are made from 1×4 but otherwise I have no complaints about the design or my construction.

Thank you! The bins are from Harbor Freight. Very inexpensive but extremely useful!

Very nice.
I have the same plans but have yet to get off my lazy butt and build it.
Thanks for the motivation!

Well done, I made one a while ago from the plans as well. I made mine a little bigger to fit a specific area. I sure love mine lots of storage for a small shop.

It is very nice and pretty, and as long as if it serves your needs, that is great.

But I do suspect that within a year or two, V2.0 will be required. then V3.0

On some of my shop storage stuff, I guess Im working on V15+

Just the way it goes buddy

Take pride in v1.0 and work it to the max.
