Wall cabinet

Wall cabinet

Wall cabinet Adding new tools or supplies to your workshop is always a good thing. But sometimes, finding a place to set up a tool or store more supplies means juggling the existing layout of wall cabinets or tool racks. With its interlocking hanging cleats this system transforms a major hassle into a minor task accomplished in minutes. In this project article, you'll learn how to build racks for bar and pipe clamps, a perforated hardboard panel for hanging hand tools, and wall cabinets with either clear acrylic or hardboard doors for see-through or covered-up storage. Featured in three handy sizes -- 12"-deep for general storage, 8"-deep for hardware, and 7"-deep for tools -- all the cabinets share identical construction details. This project appeared in the November 2003 issue of WOOD magazine.

you could take out the backing so it could swivel 360 degrees and hold another tool

I'd like to have the ability to flip to a second tool on the alternate side. Any suggestions?
