Reader 1200tec built this sweet-ass side cabinet for his well-outfitted shop. It’s the kind of rig that makes his neighbors hate him — up until the time they need help building one for their own garage. In short, it’s handy, inexpensive and looks good.

From what we can glean from the photo pool picks it’s about 8 feet tall and somewhere in the vicinity of two or three feet wide with purpose-built shelves on the interior. It’s not unlike the storage cabinet I built for my shop a while back, except 1200tec’s is more elegant and less stupid.

The finished-out doors are a nice touch as well. Just a few days spent in the shop and you’ve got more organization and storage when it’s time to put everything away — hats off and beers up to you.

    Gasoline fuel tanks inside a closed cabinet? Inside a closed shop?

    Tsk tsk.

    On the bright side, there’s a very small fire extinguisher next to them…so all you have to do is reach into the fireball…

    Just because you see fuel tanks in a cabinet does not mean they are full and if you noticed there is no back on the cabinet (air flow). On top of that note would they be safer (if full) in a shop with sparks flying around or in a cabinet?? Also my shop is my garage so were you get that its closed, not sure??

    So let me get this straight… you throw a few doors on a shelf, call it a cabinet and post that to website that celebrates great works with tools, and want a pat on the back? You slapped doors on a shelf, you didn’t build or craft anything. Next time, try a little harder…

  5. 2olMastAR: Why don’t you submit a photo of one of your projects? We’re always happy to feature what folks are working on in the shop.

    Well Audra, I haven’t had to time to work on any “projects” as of late. My comment’s purpose was to convey the message that we don’t need to celebrate mediocrity. Would I get positive comments for nailing three 2X4’s together and calling it a chair? I think if you going to spend time and acknowledge a person’s creativity, there needs to actually be some creativity. If this is the standard by which ingenuity is measured, I am going snap a picture when I complete a load of laundry and post it.
