It looks to be very versatile and easily changed; as tools and projects require!

Looks great to me.

Going to check out the vid now. Your videos are more entertaining than ever. Thanks for putting them out there. I love the “non-blog” ones. Ha!

Next time you have a dado that is too tight, use your router table or tablesaw and skim off the ends to make a rabbet. There will be no loss of material, and you can fit it perfectly.

Just sayin

It’s a shop cabinet and most people are not going to use the same care or quality of materials on a shop cabinet as they would on a nice piece of furniture. Above all of that, a shop cabinet should be very practical. Personally, I think that this is a very nice shop cabinet and it will be a wonderful addition to your shop. Actually, I have a great place in my shop for a cabinet like this. I’m not sure that I will ever scrape up the time to do it. Your shop cabinet started paying for itself when you put all the tools and supplies on it that had been in your way. Congratulations on a valuable piece. You did a great job on the video as well.

Your video was fantastic. The problems/errors/mistakes/learning-opportunities are the exact same problems/errors/mistakes/learning-opportunities that I make! It is nice not to feel alone! :-)

Need to make something like that for my shop (and maybe one for my garage too). Great inspiration.

Nice, I made something similar, but not modular a long time ago. This would be a great replacement, thanks for the idea!

I appreciate you showing your frustrations during the build video. I also appreciate your ability to stick with it through completion. When I have a project go as badly as yours did I often end up spending the day drinking beer in the corner of the shop. I really enjoy your videos. Take care, George
