These are my cabinets and the way that they are going to be laid out in my shop. They are all made out of 3/4” Red Oak Plywood. I got this stuff at Menards for aobut $48 a sheet. It is rated B2 and is really nice looking and stabel stuff. I have found very few voids in it. It sands real nice and finishes nice as well. I took the basic design from Norm on NYW cabinet series. I just modified them to fit me a little better. They are 29 1/4” tall for a finished height of around 30 1/4”. I am going to use 3/4” MDF and 1/4” Hardboard for countertops. I will then trim it out with some Red Oak. I have three double wide units with two two drawer units and two with three drawers. The face frames are made out of 3/4” solid Red Oak. Again I finished with Tung Oil. The doors and drawers are made out of 3/4” Red Oak like everything else and I used 1/4” MDF finished with poly for the panels. They were pretty quick to make. The baby drum that I have made quick qork out of the sanding for the drawers. The drawer boxes are made out of 1/2” BB ply. I got it from Menards in 4×8’ sheets. Good stuff to work with. The drawers are mounted on bottom 3/4 extension slides. They work pretty nice. Not bad for my first cabinets if I do say so myself. Enjoy.

You have a nice start on your shop. Seeing the cabinetry in your shop makes me want to seriously reconsider re-doing mine. When I built my cabinets I did not see an need to make them “pretty” since they were just shop furniture. But I have come to enjoy the appearance that furniture quality cabinetry gives to a shop.

Nice job.

WOW. Great looking cabinets. Some of you guys are tearing me up with these cabionets that look like they belong in the kitchen itself. Next thing you know someone will be putting granite tops and a granite sink in the workshop…..................................LOL JUST KIDDING. GREAT JOB.
