This is one of my earlier quick project.
It is one of those cabinets I had a need for but was in hurry to finish.
Minimum consideration was put into precision or finish. Nothing fancy, just plywood, screws and glue.
The hardest thing was aligning the piano hinge correcty on both half of the cabinet.
I was still setting up the shop and needed to store some finishing supplies. I saw a similar project in one of the magazine but smaller (I don’t remember which one).
I just made mine deeper. I put it in an otherwise dead corner. It turned out to be usefull.

The thought of redoing it hit me from time to time but I have to complete some more intersting projects first.

Thanks for all the comments!

Great use of peg-hole 7-2. Nice use of space and functional layout. Will you keep the background white or customize it for a genuine unique original feel? Great piece!

It will stay white until I figure the grand idea of how my shop should look.
