I built 3 large wall cabinets for the workshop side of my garage in an attempt to get a lot of the seldom used tools and supplies out of the way. I’m a fan of storage behind doors because they hide clutter and keep the dust off everything. These cabinets will hold and protect a lot of items while keeping them somewhat accessible.

Each cabinet is 36×30 inches with 3 shelves. The project took a little more than 2 sheets of 3/4-inch pine plywood and a couple lengths of dimensional lumber. Most everything is assembled with pocket screws.

There is a write-up about building the bench at my website at

Nice work, one can never have enough stuff stored and out of the way.
