Steel Cabinet Makeover
Customize an ordinary steel storage cabinet to hold a shop full of tools and supplies.
This project starts out as a common steel cabinet. Then, instead of relying on the cabinet’s metal shelves alone, we added an array of custom storage solutions to organize the hand and power tools you use most often. Customizing a steel cabinet saves the time and hassle of building a large box. The counter and hutch in the upper portion of the steel cabinet rests on a fixed shelf in the center of the cabinet and makes this project stand out as more than just a plain storage cabinet. The counter provides a small worksurface and the hutch adds options for organizing your tools and supplies.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
