I made two different size cabinets for my wood shop out of reclaimed wood.The shelves are made from 1” plywood and the doors are made from pine wood from pallets.The large one to store my larger tools is 40” L 37” W and 24” deep.The small ones are 26” L 26” W 8” deep. The handels on the small cabinets are made from a branch from a pine tree.Thank you for viewing my project.

I like them. The angled wood fronts give them a visual flair you wouldn’t expect in shop furnishing.

Those are probably the best pine doors I’ve seen. Awesome creativity with running the grain at an angle. With the angle and the contrasting darkness between the pieces of wood – it looks great. Surprisingly for pine.

awesome…projects from reclaimed materials are the best…
1 inch ply? did you laminate 2 1/2 sheets or can you purchase it that way? I’ve never seen 1 inch ply in my area

Nice. I like that they are from reclaimed wood. I also like the angle of the wood on the front.
