shop cabinets - recommendations?
Posted February 05, 2001 - 12:08 PM
Anybody got any recommendations on particular brands of cabinets? I need floor to ceiling storage cabinets, wall cabinets for over the workbench, base cabinets with good/solid tops for a workbench & I'd really like something that has sliding trays like you see in kitchens now.

Good job buddy, I was just going to post this question. Our house will be done in April and I want to figure out what this will cost before the wife does
I'm going to make my own work bench, 4x4 legs daidoed (sp?) to accept 2x4 bracing and a shelf about a foot off the floor. I'll use a solid core, wood door for the top. I had one like this in a previous shop and it works great and can't be beaten. I also mounted a 2x4 on the wall parallel to the bench, so the bottom of the top brace can rest on it. Then I screwed all of this into the wall. It was super strong and when sawing something in the vise, no movement.
I would love to have matching cabinets for the shop, but may have to buy some as salvage from a re-model or something.
Help us out guys.

Made a workbench out of 4x4s and glulams (sp?) I used 2 2'x5' glulams as the work surface.
Rented a house once where the old metal kitchen cabinets were used in the garage. Counter top was wood and it made a good low cost work surface.
