Luckily I'm doing pine face and pine shaker doors that will paint and look nice.
I would agree that OSB would be a poor choice for cabinets.

But for walls in a garage, I would prefer it to particle board. I'd be afraid that if I put screws into particle board walls to hang stuff, the particle board would eventually crumble there and the screws come loose.

But then of course there's always 7-ply baltic birch plywood . . .

I don't have a bucket list, I have a post-bucket list. So far it includes
1) Coroner's report is to read "Death by misadventure."
2) Dixieland jazz band at my funeral.
