When I asked my wife what she thought of the new workshop cabinet, she said it looks “workshoppy.” Okay, I’ll admit, the joinery is not as nice as I would like, but you’ve gotta love those 4″ deep drawers, and the big cavern behind those doors is sized for a future Sherline mill.
I’m also pretty chuffed about having found the drawer slides at ReStore for a buck apiece, and the cup hinges were from a previous project. All the wood was left over from previous projects, save the studs. So this cabinet cost something like $20 and some time.
I’m wracking my brain for something fun to paint on this cabinet. Ideally, I would like to be able to identify the drawers and doors by obvious names. This way I could tell someone looking for a tool, “it’s in the XXX drawer,” substituting “XXX” for something family-safe. Any suggestions?
