I am in the middle of building wood whisperer’s tool storage. the cabinet rests on plywood dividers and was wondering if anyone has any ideas or product to place on the bottom for protection.

Ideally, it would be nice to find a roll of 3/4 wide by say 1/2 rubber to place and staple to the bottom. Lacking this, I was considering ripping some pressure treated strips and nailing in place

Ideas?

Have no idea what your project looks like. Need a photo.

Best guess: On all my home made shop cabinets I use simple nail on plastic feet unless the cabinet is on casters. You cannot slide a plywood cabinet around on the floor as the plywood bottoms would splinter. The plastic feet make it easy to slide cabinets around when you want to rearrange.

The plastic slides, and you want that little gap to keep your plywood from wicking moisture from the concrete slab

Just a little gap is all you need.

good idea, thanks, can just space these evenly over the plywood bottoms.
