I have finished my hardware storage for the new shop. I need to thank lumberjocks Kent Shepherd and Grelcar for the inspiration of this cabinet. It is plywood dado shelves and same trim detail as I trimmed the doors and windows with. Made the Crown out of some scrap pine. Stained to match the shop and sealed with 2 coats of laquer based sealer. Finished with 4 coats of genie brand semi-gloss laquer. The hardest part was getting it on the wall securely. The dang thing weighs a ton! It lands on one stud so I lagged that top and bottom, then used some 1/4 anchor bolts to further secure it. These anchors I used on a clients job to put a very large TV in a loft. I feel confident it is up to stay.
This is a major step forward for the shop. I have two more cabinets to build to get all the tools in a organized and proper place. I will throw those up as I finish them
