This is my first attempt at building a cabinet…I figured workshop cabinets wouldn’t have to be perfect. The doors are biscuit jointed (joined?) 1×6. Had just gotten new biscuit joiner, had to try it out. :-)

Mounted using “french mount”...ripped 2×4 mitered at 45 degrees mounted to wall studs. Cabinet is hung on 2×4’s.

Yes, I do. I find myself looking for reasons to use it!

Nice job. I really enjoy seeing shop made cabinets, gives me good ideas for a job I’ve been thinking about for years.

They look good!

I think if I would build a new set of cabinets for my shop, I would make frame and panel doors with a plexi center “window”as I find I open two or three doors to search out where I put my junk…

I like the look of your cabinets.
No non-sense feel.

I love what you said about not having to be perfect. I agree with that sentiment. For years, I usually make something for the shop as a rest period between long, complex projects. The joke is that my shop drawers use full extension ball bearing slides which are of better quality than what’s in my contractor-made kitchen cabinets!
