Rolling Storage Cabinet

While building things to get my shop more organized I built a rolling storage cabinet. I’m not a huge fan of cabinet storage typically because I don’t like things tucked away where they aren’t visible. However, there are a few things that I wouldn’t mind being stowed.

I decided the best design for my needs would be pegboard on the left side and shelves on the right. I love flexibility so I made an adjustable shelf system that allows me to make however many shelves I need and move them wherever they are needed just by simply moving cleats.

It’s on 8 casters so it can be opened slightly or all the way and it won’t tip. I didn’t want anything very big so I made it 9” deep, a 3’ wingspan (18” closed), and 6’ tall.

In case you would like one for your shop or garage, I have steps by step instructions posted on my blog.
