This was the last project I made before stepping out of the shop for a while to handle some personal things.
The last time amazon put the stanley organizers on sale , I grabbed a bunch for hardware storage. The plano boxes I use now work fine, but I prefer the stanley cases as I can fit more and they have clear tops so I could see what’s inside without opening them up.
The body is made with columbia purebond plywood. It’s good quality. The more I use it, the more I like it.
I used basic rabbets for construction. I used 1/4” plywood for the back set into grooves all around, and also used nailer strips at the top and bottom should I want to wall mount it in the future. A piece of plastic laminate on top is more durable than plain plywood and will better withstand plopping boxes full of hardware on top.
I used 1’ wide strips of 1/2” baltic birch plywood (good use of scraps) for the “runners” and spaced them so I’d be able to place shallow or deep compartment organizers wherever I needed.
It’s sized to fit under my outfeed table perfectly.
The casters used are linked above. They’re my favorite casters for shop projects and work great.
The last pic shows my old hardware storage setup.
Thanks for looking!
