Got tired of everything on my garage shelves getting covered with dust from my workshop, so I built some new enclosed storage cabinets to solve the problem. I used 3/4” plywood for the carcass and shelves of the individual cabinets and built their doors using 3/4”x4” cedar for the frames with 1/4” x 4” pine tongue and grove centers for an overall rustic appearance. The overall dimensions are 12’ 2” wide x 6’ high consisting of four 36” wide x 15” deep individual cabinets. Each of the cabinets are individually anchored to the wall then screwed together. One of the cabinets, where we keep our winter golf jackets, clothing, etc. is lined with aromatic eastern red cedar closet tongue and grove planks (smells great).

Sure looks better than the red/black metal monstrosities I have. The cedar interiors are a really nice touch.

Man that is a great solution. If I had that, I’d need to label what is in each one because my memory is getting weak!!

Real nice work on those units. They look great in there!!

Cheers, Jim
