I am developing my plan for some big storage cabinets for our garage because a puppy potentially is coming into our home (so beginning the puppy-proofing process). There will be two sections that large plastic storage bins will be stacked and then another cabinet with shelves for car wax, cleaners, etc. Everything will be behind doors (not sure if hinged or sliding doors). I have space for the cabinets to be 24 inches deep and 6 foot high. The section with open spaces for the bins will be a total of 84 inches long (split into two 42 inch sections – each with doors). The shelf cabinet will be 42 inches as well.
I have not yet figured out SketchUp so sat down to draw out the plans and determine costs. I was looking at using ¾ inch plywood for the sides, top, and bottom then ½ inch plywood for the doors, back and shelves (although the shelves might better be thicker to avoid sagging). My calculations come to 4 sheets of ¾ inch plywood and 6 of the ½ inch.
Some questions that I have:
Hoping to get started on this in the upcoming weekends. Any comments or suggestions are welcome as this type of project is another new venture. Thank you.
