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.
