I wanted a way to store my air guns so that they would be off of the floor and out of all of those bulky plastic storage containers. This storage cabinet is based on a photo from Wood Magazine’s “America’s Best Home Workshops 2013” (page 20). The cabinet is made from scraps of oak and birch plywood and solid oak (doors, hangers and face frame). The door panels are 0.093” acrylic that I had in the shop. The cabinet measures 27” h x 25.5” w X 6”d. Construction is glue, screws and nails. The back panel is 1/2” birch to support the weight of the air nailers. I arranged my guns on the back panel and allowed for clearance to get them on and off of the supports (photo 3 and 4). The nailers are supported at the handle on below the magazine to keep them from tipping. The doors are standard m&t joints. The cabinet is hung on french cleats.
