Here's an easy storage cabinet you can build for your wood shop. I made this one with 3/4" plywood. Easily adaptable for anything you want to store.

So I got rid of a few boxes of scraps and parts voluntarily but because it didn't make up enough space, my wife made me get rid of two by force.
I'll get out.

Hello brother, I’m always watching ur videos and i love how u make them and we’re benefiting from them.. im all the way from saudi and i would like to request from u to make a simple video showing us how to use Sketchup software to design our small projects and make our cut list before we start the actual work I believe it will be much better and easier if we did it that way but I’m facing troubles learning to use sketchup please help me with it

Anyone know the rough dimensions of this? Probably 32" tall, maybe 18" deep?

Nice video Steve , I share my workshop with my father in law he's a hoarder of chipboards and formica which he thinks is the stuff for building furniture and he make a mess and never puts tools away when he;s finished , I make guitars and fine furniture with hard woods and clean and put things away when I have finished , do you have any advice for me so I don't KILL HIM HELP

The cabinet uses up your hoarded pieces of wood so now you don't even need it!

You used such thick plywood for sides but used hardwood for the bottom, that won't hold up, poor choice

What do you need a TV in the workshop? Watch CNN? =))
Eric Jones
Damn, love the idea of the truck and table.
You have some great friends Steve!
have you had a brad nail deflect upward through a sheet and into your finger yet? Thanks for taking the time to make these videos and show the lay person a very straight forward approach to making quality projects.

Steve, thanks for posting this. What is the ply you used please?
I've got that same straight edge, but in pushing my saw or router along it with some pressure against the edge, mine always wants to flex in the middle at that joint where the black piece is, which would make a long, shallow dip in an otherwise straight cut if I let it. What I have to do is support that joint, usually by clamping a piece of scrap to the edge of the plywood, with the scrap pointing at a right angle and resting up against the back side of that joint.

I know this is a old video. But you deserve more than that saw.
