That's what I was going to recommend too, but I was beaten to the punch. If you have time to wait and look you can find some great deals on serious industrial-grade shop cabinets, shelves, and workbenches.

Now the current house we are in, the wif doesn't think we need to replace them. Now she'll be reading this thread (except for my post ), and I have an excuse to replace them.

My biggest recommendation to everyone is look over your Insurance Coverage. Know what you have and what you're covered for. Don't become complacent like we did. While we had decent coverage, it could have been better. A lot better.

Pics of the rebuild coming soon.....

Sorry bro, that sucks. Cant wait to see pics of the rebuild. Bet it will sweet, it looked it was before.

What are good cabinets, I've been looking and close to pulling the trigger on some gladiator gearbox type cabinets, but not sure if I'm missing something better? Not concerned about cost as much as sturdy design and usability.


I have several of the Samson cabinets listed here on this McMaster-Carr catalog page (click on "Heavy Duty Full-Height Shelf Cabinets"). Price is reasonable compared to StrongHold etc. and they are much more durable than big-box storage options (or the type of steel cabinet that ships knocked-down, several of which I also have).

This is my old man castle, it's a big shed built over an old cattle byre. It needed some serious work doing to it, plus my fiancee wanted a proper craft studio.





So we decided what we really needed was to make some decent improvements. This is stage 1



We're building a 60x40' workshop, split into two 20x40 workshop spaces, a millinery/craft space for her and a woodwork and other crafts for me plus a 20x20 dry store and a 20x20 garage workshop to keep the bikes and do the 'dirty' mechanicking type stuff.

Foundations start work in a couple of weeks. It'll be brick built, heavily insulated and with underfloor heating in the two main workshop spaces, lots of big windows and an I beam across the roof of the garage space to hook hoists etc to.

More pics as it progresses.

I got the three rolling cabinets and the tall gear locker at Lowes and the hanging wall cabinet on CL. Lowes dealt on the prices with me. The one I bought at (has been 5 years) would deal on prices as the sales people are on commission, same for a set of Frigidaire appliances I bought there.

The Gear Track on the wall was a steal. They had it as "returned" merchandise, reg. $99 for two 8 ft long sections (forget, maybe 10" wide) marked down to $69 and then $44. He asked if I wanted to buy it and I said sure if you go another 50% off, he asked, will you take it all? I said yet, for $22 a box a will. Walked out with 8 boxes of it!

Lucky find, but I do like it. Garage is set up so that the only thing that touches the floor or things on wheels, so easy to clean. Notice that I even have a 2 1/2 ton floor jack hanging from the Gear Wall Track, and that things is heavy!
