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.
