It was time to re-organize my small Southern California Shop. I saw this project on the WoodSmith Shop and decided it might not be a bad idea for one of the walls in my shop. I figured 50% more storage will be a good thing and help me stay more organized.
I used 3/4 oak for this project. It weighs a ton! Its anchored to the wall with many 3/8×2 ½ lag bolts. I love the 16 storage bins on the bottom, although I am thinking of putting plexi -glass on a hinge to keep dust out of the bins. It is nice to have everything so close, instead of spread all around the shop.
I changed the plans some, as the height needed to be adjusted a bit. I bought the bins from Grainger for $1.31 each, needing 16 of them. I used 1/4 Tempered Peg Board. I will be changing the screen door rollers the plan calls for, as there a little weak in my opinion. However, my Nickname is “Over Kill LOL” The doors are T&G.
I finished it with some dye stain I had left over 4 parts orange 7 parts Med brown. No real fancy finish on this project. I thought of some wipe on poly but Blondie wants me to start her outdoor Dining table as her custom outdoor dinning Chairs arrived 3 weeks early OH No
Total money spent:
Oak = 120
Peg Board = 40 ( with a bunch left over )
Aluminum track =10
Handles = 8
Shelf brackets 10
All in all a good price for a custom solid wood cabinet.
Thx for looking & all comments and feedback always welcome.
