My garage rebuild continues with this shallow wall cabinet I made from some plans I got from a wood magazine. It’s made from pine 1” x 6”s and 1/4” hardened peg board. The doors slide on a 1” x 1/8” aluminum flat stock that’s embedded into the base and the wheels are screen door wheels that are attached in a dado cut into the bottom rail. The top glides with the aid of 2 ea. 1” fender washer loosely attached to the top of the door and that rides between the face frame and a 3/4” runner attached slightly more than 1” back from the face frame. The bottom cubbie holes is an add on that provides space for AKRO bins for hardware and other small objects. Now I just need to find a local supplier that carries the improved pegs and then I’ll fill this thing up with the wood working tools I’ve got stashed in my over sized roll around tool box.
I’d like to thank Patron and Horizontal Mike and the other folks that responded to my earlier post for rope lighting. I went with one 33” low profile fluorescent light fixture to see how much light it gives off (first picture) I’ll get the second fixture on Friday and it should give me plenty of good lighting while working at the work bench. Thanks for viewing and as always look forward to your critiques!
