Well, I’ve been running out of reliable storage space for a while now. I’ve been a big fan of the workshop hutch Norm built on the New Yankee Workshop but I’m not too keen on the base as the shed gets infested with mice every year. So I mounted it to the wall with a french cleat. Turns out my shed wall is bent too.

The joinery is pocket holes and biscuits. Next time I’ll forgo the biscuits and just pocket hole the lot. Painting the back really lightens up the shelves too.

Due to limited supply of materials in outback Australia I had to make do with structural plywood. Not the best but it is strong enough.

You can see the earlier models sitting on the floor. I’ll mount them on the other walls of the shop to increase the storage again. You can also see my Norm copied saw horses underneath the hutch, just in case it falls down overnight.

Good Job. You are right the white background makes finding shelf items easier.
I did that with one of my cabinets.

Thanks, Mike. I’m hesitant to put anything in there for fear of marking the shelves.

I think the the plywood looks right at home in that project. And the white background is a fantastic feature. I constantly browse the LJ projects for ideas to add to my own “to do” list. This shelf got fast tracked to the top five.

Thanks for the comments guys. I added a simple lumber rack to the bottom of the shelf which works pretty well for my small off-cuts pile. If i can figure out how to add another photo i’ll do it.
