I don't know. If you guys make me think about it too much I'll feel compelled to dismount the doors, mask off the pegboard and shake up the 'ole rattle can

Looks great. Now to decide where everything goes. Do you have an estimate on cost?

Cost? Let's see:

2x 30" hinges: around $16.5 each
1x 42" hinge: (cut in half with a hacksaw) $18 or so.
8x shelf pins: already had but only costs a few bucks.
1 sheet perforated hardboard: under $20

1 sheet of 3/4" furniture grade plywood: I paid about $4 for what I used. A sheet at the store would probably run you $50'ish.

Given what I already had, I only shelled out around $75. But I'd expect to pay around $120 for materials at the store. If my math is correct.

Dude! I saw the start of this thread but hadn't checked it for a day or two and you're done! Than looks awesome. I've had this bug to get my shop more organized, and I have so many freakin' ideas that I don't know where I really want to start. I'm afraid I'll end up with a Kenbo like re-arranging the whole shop project, and I'm not really up for that at this point

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...

I don't know how I missed this, but great work on the cabinet. I am very jealous, and envious at the same time.

Can't wait to see it loaded up.

I used to be fairly indecisive, but now....... I'm not so sure.

It took me a few tries to get it onto the cleat (this thing must weight 80 pounds) but here it is mounted securely to the wall.

Stilts, I forgot to factor in the cost of the hardware. Glue usage was small.

The 4 magnetic catches were less than a buck each and I used about $8 worth of screws.

I hear ya'. I have tons of ideas but didn't - and still don't - really know where to start. So when I got the wild hair to go ahead and jump into making this I jumped on it immediately to force myself to commit to it and not procrastinate any longer.

This obviously won't organize my entire shop but it's a welcome step in the right direction, that's for sure. Every baby step gets me that much closer.

Nice job, Steve! That should serve you well. I'd love to see it once you get all the tools organized on it!

Nice Work !!!

Well, very nice work on the cabinet.
I am considering building one or something similar. I made some quick throw together cabinest last Feb. using leftovers and they turned out okay.

Tools are like guns, You can never have enough.
Where did I put that tape measure???

What the heck happened here? The last thing that I remember was that I was following this thread like a fat kid on a Smartie. Next thing I know, I miss a couple of days posts and BAM!!! You're done. You guys say that I bang out project quickly. Holy crap man, I blinked and missed this whole build. Great work buddy. This one will definitely serve you well and it looks fantastic.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"
