I plan on building some cabinets for my shop in the next few days/weeks. I am going to build base cabinets then the hanging cabinets, the entire set should be about 90” (7 1/2’) wide. The hanging cabinets should be pretty basic I guess, just a few adjustable shelves inside them.
I am wondering what I should do with the base cabinets though.
I plan on using the cabinets for tool storage and paints and finishes. I am probably going to put the smaller cans of liquids in the hanging cabinets and have the heavier gallon cans in the base cabinets. I really like the looks of all drawers with not face frames, simular to this-
I am have trouble deciding on a couple of things.
A) What sizes should I make my drawers? I sat in the shop today thinking of what all I would be putting in the drawers and how deep of a drawer they would need. -Air tools about 5 1/2” -Skill Saw 10” -Router 8”-10” (not really sure about this one) -Gallon paint can 8”
So I guess I should make a few drawers those sizes and then what other sizes should I make. I’m thinking maybe a few shallow ones for drill bits and other things? How deep should a shallow drawer be (odd question)? What all size drawers do you have and what are in them?
B) Should I store gallon paint cans in a drawer or just make some doors on a small section?
Thanks everyone for your input!
