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.
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.
