    New cabinet design.

    I'm going to build some cabinets for the garage. They aren't going to be fancy, but it's a pretty big project for me. I'm an amateur sketchup designer, so bear with me if this is really horrible.

    The first one is five feet and the second one is 8 feet. There's a notch in the top of the long one to go around a window. The design is for 3/4" plywood for the shelves, top and sides with 1x4 for the rest. I'll be using 1/4" plywood for the door middles. Does this design look ok? I'm certainly not a cabinet guy, so if there are pointers. I'm all ears.

    Looks pretty good. If it's just going into the garage I'd forget about the doors. Doors can get in the way sometimes.

    I would think about making the shelve adjustable with either pins in the side or shelf standards in the sides. I made some just like that 17 years ago without adjustable shelves and I've been kicking myself ever since.

    I think they look pretty good. Those will be some sturdy cabinets if you build them out of 3/4"

    Nice drawings and should be a good strong cabinet will last a life time. I had sliding doors on one cabinet (workbench) after working at the workbench for a month doors were removed. Since then I've made several buildings for the grandsons ,from the doors.

    yeah but with 3/4 plywood their darn sure not gonna bend stick to the 3/4 plywood theory for the shelves. u can go with 1/2 for the sides-maybe!
    Bubber............................................ ..................................................
    my vote is to leave the door's maybe off a few and see how u like it.

    i too would like adjustable shelves in mine. when i made my large cupboard's down stairs, i went around measuring can's and jug's. lot of aggravation

    I vote for adjustable shelves and no doors. When my son built his he used shelve standards on the sides of each cabinet and he loves his adjustable shelves. Good Luck.

    Think about how you'll be attaching them to the wall. I like using 1/2 inch plywood for the back, glued and clamped into a rabbet in the sides, top and bottom. The half inch is strong enough that you can screw anywhere through the back into wall studs and it will hold. Alternatively you can attach 1x4 brackets to the wall and to the "backless" cabinets and hang them that way. It's not as rigid as a solid back provides.

    If the concrete slab in your building floats, be sure to mount the cabinets to the wall using vertical slots, not holes. As the slab moves up and down, you'll want the cabinets to move with it without causing damage to anything.

    I assume you will be using the top of these cabinets for a work surface. Is the height of your cabinets compatible with your height? I'm taller, so I build anything with a work surface higher than standard. This way I don't get a sore back bending over the work surface for long periods of time.
