I documented the video process on my YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CKntxbWe63U

I took a set of old cabinets from a friend. The carcasses were fine but the doors needed to be rebuilt. During the process I thought of putting a french cleat system on the door front for extra storage. This worked okay, but it looked a little messy and I was required to open and close the doors a little gingerly to avoid things falling off.

I watched one of Izzy Swan’s videos and had the idea to apply his concept to my cabinet doors. It looked much cleaner and I was actually able to store more things as I could nest them closer together.

This solution could be applied to any cabinet door in any space. Take back your wall space and give it a try!

Let me know where you could apply this idea too!

Thank you DUDDY. It was not 100 percent my idea I just applied it to my situation.

I like it! I would be afraid to use it with some of those $100 tools though. The thought of accidentally slamming one of those doors and having say your woodpeckers 1281 square pop out and land on the floor is just too easy to visualize in my head.

I like this idea, I’m about to take on some more task of building tool cabinets and this stands out, thanks for sharing, the only thing I would have done differently would be to cut the sharpie slots so that the pens are vertical instead of horizontal as the felt tip tends to dry out when they lay flat over a period.

I can see how that would be of some concern but they are in there pretty tight. I plan on putting soft close on the doors to help that accidental slamming.

Never thought about the sharpies… I will keep an eye on them. They get used alot.
