New Storage for the shop
Originally uploaded by Backwash Bob

The July 2008 issue of American Woodworker (#136) featured an article on low-cost shop storage where the author built a six-foot long, two-feet deep, storage cabinet using scrap plywood and a couple of board feet of pine.

The plans call for using those tough plastic bins that restaurants use when bussing tables. You can vary the cleats to store up to 20 of these plastic bins. I opted for 18, spacing the outside bins with a little more space between them for taller objects. I already had a piece of formica countertop to use for the top so I saved on some plywood.
