I just finished a shop cabinet. I needed more storage in my small basement shop. I really needed hardware and fastener storage so I fabricated this. It came out pretty good. I would do some things differently, but overall, I’m satisfied. I thought that I’d attach a sample screw to each bin along with a printed label. I still have to make a couple of shelves for it, but I’m glad it’s done!

Very Nicely Done! You going to use the center part for bulk hardware/fastener storage or for tools?

Cheers!

Thank you. I think it’ll just kind of develop. There are some tools and hardware that I don’t have a home for and some will find their way in here. I might do some bigger bins inside for loose hardware and odds and ends. I just noticed that you live in Lansing, Kansas. I live in Lansing, Mi. lol

Very nice—I’ve been debating making a wall cabinet for shop storage too—and wonder if the full 12” standard cabinet depth is too deep for my purposes….. I think I’d rather have it shallower, and wider, so that things are easily accessible.

What are your thoughts about cabinet depth, now that you’ve made this?

I’m very happy with the 10” depth. Plenty of room 12”” would have been a little too much for my shop. I kept holding different width boards against the wall before I decided on 10”.

Nice shop! I like the planking and the cabinet with screw bins. The attention to detail by adding the label and the screw to the front is sweet. Thanks for sharing.
