If you are at all interested in building useful, sturdy, and practical cabinets for your shop, this is the best $13.45 you can spend. Tom takes you through the process of building shop cabinets using practical techniques and basic materials. Don’t expect exact dimensioned plans, but rather an explanation of the process you need to follow to design and build cabinets that will fit your work space and your tools. He has plenty of photos and details the entire process so well that even a first-time cabinet builder can turn out a quality product. The second project I ever built was a cabinet following his designs.
No special tools or materials are needed to build these cabinets. Hardwood plywood (I substituted Baltic Birch) in 3/4, 1/2 and 1/4” thicknesses, full extension drawer slides (I got mine from wwhardware.com), and a saw – I used a table saw, Tom states in the book that he built his first with a bandsaw – are all that are needed.
