I needed to have something to do over the winter in my limited spare time. I was tired of looking at the mess (pic#2) and had a lot of hardware in various places. So-with no hardware used except for screws to compensate for bows in the scrap plywood-I cleaned up a spot. Made good use of scrap pieces along the way, too.

Really nice cabinet but I don’t appreciate you posting a picture of my work area – at least it looks like part of my shop

Nice clean up and very functional build. I would need it on casters, because I am not as good about crawling down and cleaning out under cabinets as I once was.
I really like the light color.

Great work, and it feels better to eliminate the mess I bet.

This is a great organizational piece for your shop.

Thank you, All. It is much better than the mess-though I’m still working on what to trash, and what to keep. I inherited junk from three different tinkerers over the years and have not taken time to go through everything and organize it. This helps.

Oh-and the color is natural with no finish but urethane on the countertop. It’s for my shop, and so I don’t bother with finishes.
