Custom Tool Boxes for storage
I added a couple more pics. I have to admit I have caught a fair amount of grief over this since I have not done my wife’s kitchen yet and these are far better than what she has.
After I built the first two I found I needed a little more room (too much time at Lowes) so I built a couple smaller ones. Then labeled everything and I do mean everything.
The sides & backs are made from oak doors that were discontinued at a cabinet shop. I got 2 pickup truckloads for $75. Backs are just flat panel and aren’t the same size.
I started by building large boxes with ¾” MDF then wrapping it with Oak. I did that for weight so when it is full of tools and I open the drawers it wouldn’t tip over. They are extremely heavy. The drawers are made with ½” cabinet grade plywood, even the bottoms, again for strength.
