Universal Wall Cabinet Woodworking Plan

When we decided to build the Idea Shop we wanted every component to be fresh, new, and—above all—practical. With that in mind, we put our background to work and designed a wall-cabinet system that works great for organizing hand tools, safety equipment, power-tool accessories, and much more. The cabinets go together quickly, they won't cost you an arm and a leg, and the acrylic inserts in the doors allow you to spot your well organized tools in a jiffy, and keep dust away from them, too. In this WOOD PLAN, we'll show you how to build a 2x4' cabinet.

Simple-to-Build Workbench Woodworking Plan

Our IDEA SHOP workbench may be the design for which you'vewaited for years. It's simple to build and super strong. We reliedon inexpensive lumberyard stock and rugged mortise-and-tenonjoinery to construct the base. For the benchtop, we laminatedmaple to handle a lifetime of workshop activity. And we addedbench dogs and a bench vise to expand the usefulness of ourworkbench, making it a fitting centerpiece for any home workshop.

Measures aproximately 35" tall, 60" wide, and 30" deep.
