    That’s the wrong shade of blue for something that’s bigger on the inside.

    I know the sliders don’t cost much but would probably just cut dadoes on my tablesaw straight into the top and bottom

      I considered that, but I was afraid that the narrow divider between both slots might break unless I used maple or something.

      True, and the wood might not slide as well as plastic so….

    Those aren’t French cleats; they’re Scottish cleats!

    I know about Ted’s woodworking plans, They are crappola.
    I got them and I had to get refund as they were lacking a lot.
    Don’t get them.

    Nice job on the cabinet Steve

    I don’t quite get french cleats, if you’re hanging something that’s not to be moved why not just screw it in place; if it’s to be moved I can think of many better ways than french cleats

    It’s a lot easier to hold up a small board and get it level and securely anchored to the studs than it is a complete cabinet.

    The French (Scottish) cleat idea is GREAT. I’ve used them in my garage shop and they allow me to QUICKLY reorganize my entire storage system and not just parts of it. I am planning to move my workshop out of my 2-1/2 car garage into a separate conditioned building this summer and I plan to use French cleats for everything possible. I know that starting from my initial setup/layout I will later discover a better organization and the French cleat idea allows me to move shelves and cabinets with the greatest of ease.

    Great wall cabinet.
    Love your use of paint colors.
    And moving the bench out to access all sides was smart.

    Hi Steve, I like the new image of your shop. Here’s a tip: drill two more holes in these sliding doors, you won’t have a left/right problem. 🙂 If you don’t want to spoil the looks, drill an extra hole just in the back piece, it won’t be visible when properly left-right closed.

    Hi Steve, I liked the video and used it as motivation to build a shop book cabinet. I used swinging doors and left a space at the bottom for organizing my pens, pencils and markers. Thanks for the videos, humor and forum.

    Thanks for the plans. I built a modified version as needed for my space. Added pegboard on one side. Good stuff. Thanks again.

    I made 1 level shelf for under pegboard, 8′ long, 6″ deep, 10″ tall; used two dados in the top and bottom pieces of 1x pine boards with luan sliding doors, a center vertical divider to work out any warp lengthwise. Worked well. Made a two level set for the laundry room. Have learned that slightly undersized luan doors, waxed along edges, would be an improvement, prevent any binding of the sliding doors.
    I have plastic storage cabinets (6.5′ tall, 30″ wide) in my shop, I want to replace them with sliding door cabinets, your design will work well, stack two on the wall with space underneath for floor items. Thanks for the design!!
