Charles,

What a nice thing to say! Thank you very much! All I had to start with was a thought. I then took advantages to places where I saw fit.  Such as the "basement" area! It was such fun to put together. I know that yours will be better than mine!  Thanx again!

Hi Charles.  The overall dimensions for the cabinet are 44"w x 31.5"d x 84"h.  I cut the side pieces 30 x 79.5.  The wheels on the bottom added 3.75".  I used 4" wheels and I inset them on the bottom.  Basically, I wanted to make sure the cabinet would fit under my garage door rails.  I left myself an inch or so for any errors in measurements and for the slope of the garage floor.  I was trying to cover my bases and not have any problems after I built it.  I have a slab foundation and I wanted to put it up next to the wall.  I also took into consideration the concrete foundation which was about 3 inches wide.  That is why I inset the wheels.  Your garage may be different.  For the top shelves I made one side 15.5" wide and the other side 13.75" wide.  I used 3/4 plywood for the center divider, sides, and some of the lower shelves.  I was using scrap wood my dad had given me for part of the project.  I know I made it harder on myself having to fit pieces together to get the desired measurements in some cases, but I did save a little money in doing so.

Thanks for your interest in the cabinet.  I know that I really enjoyed building it and it was definitely a learning experience for me.

New to K5 and pocket holes, any video’s on the materials listed below?

I am using Danny Proulx book on shop workstations. I am deciding whether to use MDF or Melamine. He calls for MDF. However; I like the looks of the melamine.  I am a little leery of using pocket holes for it. One of the main reasons is I have no…Continue
