Power tool cabinets

Needing to organise and store my powertools I undertook this little project. Built almost entirely from wood repurposed from crates and pallets it was a very cheap build and kept me busy. I am very proud of how it turned out and am now looking for a new

project to work on.

Awesome 👏  Beautiful, bespoke cabinetry - love it :smile: As for those little four drawer storage boxes with the coloured fronts - I’ve wrangled a lot of those - never enough shelf space 😂

Re: Power tool cabinets

@Arcc  You have done a great job, want to come and build me one... he he he.  

 

I am wondering, it apears you have put your benches on wheels, if so could you please tell me which wheels you used as I am looking to put wheels on my new build work bench when I keep changing all the time, as I think of my things I want to add to it.  :smile:

 

Cheers

Re: Power tool cabinets

Great work. I need a power tool bench/ holder. I have never built anything with wood. Sew knit crochet bake ect but not build. Mine will have to be very basic but I enjoyed seeing yours.
