After reading this I decide to share mine with all of you LJ’s

Its basically the same desing but I added a few “extra storage” capabilities. Made out of DF, hardboard, MDF pegboard, moves around on 3” double locking casters.


The main cabinet


All the clamps are secured on the back of the cabinet


All the hardware is hold on removable containers, also the saw and dado blades have a place in here


Any comment or suggestion is highly appreciated.

I saw this in WOOD magazine and have been wanting to get around to making one for my shop. You did a great job on it. Love all the added features.

This is great. Which issue of WOOD was it shown in?

Great job on the organization. I have been saving up some money to build the similar plan in WOOD magazine, but I think I will have to save a little more to add some of these great features. Thanks for the great post!!

This is what I need to do. If you saw my shop/garage you would certinaly agree. I think this will be my winter project. I have picked out a design I found in issue 97 of Shop Notes. Works good for my situation.

Nice job.

I like your idea for storing your bits. I’d love to see a picture from the other side.. it looks like you have a lot of other ‘pocket’ storage racks I’d be interested in making.

I made this same cabinet with the smaller rolling cabinet to go with it. It has been SO awesome to store my tools using vertical space since we live in a small apartment! It was a fairly easy build. I am now working on a “shop in a box” which is a pegboard cabinet with 4 doors and shelves inside. Super excited to have everything organized and have it’s own place.

Here's my blog about the build.
