I made this cabinet a while back for my shop. I needed something that was rigid and functional. I made it the size of a 4X8 Sheet of plywood which is what the back is made of. The center dropdown shelf is supported by rods made of hardwood dowels on from a round “dial” type lever to extend the dowels into holes in the side of the cabinets. The shelves are simple pullouts made specifically for the plastic part holders you see in the photos. It is nothing fancy but it gets the j.o.b. done. Have a great day.Mitch

Hey, this is great. It’s a really good organizer and I’m sure it has done wonders for your shop.
