The project

 

I needed to organise and store my power tools better so I built this cabinet. It's made almost entirely using repurposed wood from crates and pallets. It was an affordable build and kept me busy. I am very proud of how it turned out.

 

Building the frames of the two units.

The wheels transformed the entire workshop as I was able to skip all the hassle of manhandling them around whenever I needed them moved. The wheels are 45mm castors. I thoroughly recommend them as it really does make it easier when you need to reconfigure the workshop for a certain project.

More workbench and tool storage projects

 

In need of more tool storage and a bigger work area, Workshop member Rodney designed this custom workbench with loads of built-in tool storage.

Workshop member JoeAzza took apart his existing workbench to build a frame that would accommodate wheels and added a beautiful Ash timber benchtop from Bunnings.
