This cabinet is a ShopNotes design from issue 74.
I built this storage cabinet because i have become frustrated with the size of the the plastic trays in the small countertop hardware storage cabinets you can buy at lowes. I also have the same problem many of you do in that I cant find what i know i have when i need it. This cabinet groups similar hardware together in a single drawer for easy selection. It is made up of six 2” drawers and three 4” drawers.
The case is made from cabinet grade pine plywood faced with select grade pine lumber. The drawer bodies and dividers are made from #2 white pine. One great feature of this cabinet is it doesn’t require the purchase of drawer slides or drawer pulls. Shopnotes outlines the steps necessary to create drawer faces with built in pulls and note card slot for labeling each drawer. The drawer slides were made from 1/2” square scrap oak.
It was a fun project to build, but most importantly, it will help me find the hardware and consumable items I need faster than I could before.
