Noticed a couple of plywood panels (roughly 6’ x 11’) that had been used to package a piece of equipment that had been shipped to the place I work. They had been sitting outside for a while and were in pretty sad shape. I was able to get them to give them away since they were obviously landfill bound- so you could say this was a “green project”. I dragged them home and disassembled them. Had enough salvagable plywood to build both the base cabinet (36” high, 58” long and 24” deep) and the upper cabinet(12” high. 58” wide and 12” deep) of a shop storage project I had been planning. I am still in the high tech and very scientific process of un-warping the top shelf….lol. The base cabinet will have two drawers at top and a door at lower left. The upper shelf will mount directly to wall and there will be tool board in between. Total cost (other than alot of elbow grease) will be less than 50 bucks.

Excellent salvage. Storage is always needed.
