I got the basic plans for this from a publication called “The Complete Small Shop”. It was a compilation of projects from Shop Notes and Woodsmith magazines. I modified the basic plan somewhat. I made it a bit deeper to accommodate the shelves in back, I used 8/4 poplar for the door and cabinet frames, and I used bridal joints to build the doors. I added the sides to strengthen the base cabinet and help keep dust off the shelves. The hinges are brass bushings sunk into the door frames with 1/4-20 bolts holding them to the base cabinet.
This is a great place to store many of my more commonly used non-woodworking tools. I was very pleased with how everything came out. It’s been up for about 18 months now and everything is still as tight as it was the day I made it.
