For quite a while I’ve (actually my wife) wanted a new closet in our master bedroom. I went to Home Depot and purchased enough ¾ MDF to not only do a new California closet for the bedroom, but with a little left over for a new wood storage cart for my shop. With the new closet done (except for the painting, that the wife’s job) I set to work on cleaning up a nasty, catch-all corner of my shop. I was storing all of my turning blanks, thick boards and green wood in one semi-hidden corner. As you can see from the picture, it needs a lot of work.
I took two 17” wide sheets of the MDF and routered out slots for the shelves and back. Next I took another 17” piece and set it aside for the back. Finally I took the last piece and made the shelves. I put on a Formica top, banded with chamfered white oak. Lastly, I went to Harbor Freight and got some locking casters for the cart.
As you can see from the pictures, it’s cleaned up my shop considerably. As I was cleaning up the corner I even ran on to some turning blanks that I’d forgotten I had. Bonus!
