This is an organizer box cabinet for Plano 3600-series boxes and Milwaukee jobsite and DeWalt deep organizer boxes, which will obviously live in the basement shop. This was my first project with the table saw, which was also an eye-opening experience at showing me how much I preferred working with hand tools.

Plano’s 3600 series boxes are great because they come in a variety of configurations, are readily available, inexpensive, and good quality. A few shelves fit the tall 3650 boxes. These aren’t as long as the Milwaukee and DeWalt boxes so at the back of each Plano shelf is a little scrap block of wood, and the Plano shelves also have a nice hand cutout to make pulling them out easy. (They’re obviously packed tightly and squeezing fingers in to get them out is a challenge.)

On the larger shelves are the Milwaukee and DeWalt boxes. I prefer the Milwaukee boxes. I found that I measured the DeWalt boxes incorrectly—there’s a little nub near the middle of the box that measured about 1/4” and is used to help align boxes for stacking. The clearance on the shelves is about 1/4”, so they are a tight fit.

Yes, as soon as I shared this on Facebook a bunch of people jumped up to say they were either stealing the idea or wanted one for themselves! Thanks for the welcome—this does seem like a great site and resource with friendly people!
