This is modified from “The Farmer Shop Book” book by Louis M Roehl (well worth the purchase if you should find a copy).

I upgraded the joinery from the butt nailed system he described and replaced several of the shelves with removable bins (this was a choice based on a lack of good poplar in my shop).

Now I just need to organize the thing.

The Farmer Shop Book is indeed a good book. And you don’t even need to be a farmer :-)

Looks great Ryan

That’s a real handy build, I like it a lot … Please get rid of the tripping hazard at the bottom; I spoke with a guy last week that tripped and fell into a running table saw, So this week I’m looking for hazards.
