After about a year after completing the design and parts list, I finally took the time to build this Small Parts Cabinet. I purchased the bins almost two years ago, and now I finally have a permanent home for them. Nothing fancy, but certainly functional.

Hurricane Harvey is having a very negative impact on my area, but at least I had one positive side effect, time in a cooler than normal shop for an August Saturday, to complete a long awaited project.

Thanks for looking.

This is a fine cart for organizing small parts and hardware.

I’m thinking of building something similar to this for my 6 Stanley bins. I’m curious about the shelves. Are they hardboard or 1/4” plywood? It’s hard to tell from the pics.

Any issues with the shelves bearing the weight of the (sometimes very heavy) bins? I have two of the deeper organizers and four of the ones you have in your rack. The deeper organizers get very heavy when filled with screws.

Hi Jonah,

My dividers are mostly hardboard, but a few are also 1/4” plywood. It is mixed as this project was made completely from scraps from other projects, except for the bins of course. Two of my large bins are very heavy, but do not seem to cause the dividers to deflect much.

Thanks for looking.
