Made this cabinet for my garage/workshop. I have intentions of eventually making more, possibly along with some base cabinets to match. Hard to find the space to put them though. I initially just screwed it to the wall, but after I decided to move it to another place, I decided to hang it on french cleats, which I have pretty much around the whole garage. It’s made of pine and laminated pine and finished with shellac. For now, its where most of my paints, brushes and spray cans are stored.

Nice job. Looks like the joinery work is tight. Be careful, it’s addictive. Soon you’ll have 3 or 4 more on the wall!

Very nice. I agree it is addictive. You start thinking what or where else can I use one.

Nice job.
I prefer frameless cabinets (for the space) but that looks great.
I like the doors a lot.
