Workshop Organization – Homemade Small Parts Storage

Making a simple small parts storage cabinet from wood scraps. Part of the workshop organization month. If you liked this project don't forget to subscribe for more videos weekly!

If I had to do it again I'd use plywood or MDF instead of melamine. Less chip-out, drawers would slide easier and would probably look better, if that matters in a workshop.

My name is Steve and on this channel I plan to post videos of the usual things I make around my very VERY small shop set up in a closet.

Some will be shop projects and homemade tools, some will be toys for my daughter and some will be home improvements I make around my house.

  9. Great content on your channel! I’m in the process of setting up a very
    small shop as well (basically in a closet space) and I would be very
    interested in seeing a tour of your shop or more videos about it to get
    some inspiration and ideas.. thank you!

  10. Thanks!

  11. I’m planing to do some upgrades in y shop, then I’ll do a shop tour. At the
    moment, what you see in the first seconds of this video it’s my whole shop.

  12. Nice sanding trick.

  13. Thanks!

  14. nice idea and work!

  15. Thank you!

  16. This is EXACTLY what I’ve been looking for!! Thanks! Now to find someone
    who has the tools to make it. lol
    I make beaded jewelry and almost all the pieces are tiny and keeping them
    organized is a big task. This is one great solution. I can put labels on
    the front of each organizer and just slide them out instead of having to
    unstack them all. (apparently spellcheck says unstack isn’t a word? Ok 🙂 )

  17. I agree. I’m definitely saving that one for later

  18. Good build and attractively done!

  19. I have a bunch of those plastic cases so I was thinking about making a
    storage rack like yours. The only thing I noticed is the lip is only a few
    milimeters wider, but I noticed you made the side walls then measured for
    width. Thats what Ill do. Thanks

  20. Also. Is it easy to download your videos. I wanted to try, but all I have
    is my phone. Im not too sure how I would edit

  21. Ничего Особенного

    hello. could you tell what table saw do you use?

  22. The Small Workshop

    Old 7″ Rockwell Compactool cause it’s small and quiet (direct drive).

  23. It’s helpfull. Nice ideia.

  24. Mariusz Mierzejewski

    material is schit bat wery good job

  25. Where did you get those containers they are what I have been looking for?

  26. good ممتاز

  27. NICE! I have several of the cheap plastic small parts cabinets for hardware
    and small electrical parts.
    I have not been able to get out and clear up my shop for a while, and I
    left alot of the little drawers out of the cabinet and sitting on my bench
    top for a couple of years, and the plastic cabinet has warped and now the
    drawers are all out of whack. I want something better and I think I just
    found it! Thanks Dude :)

  28. Outlaw Edge Bladeworks Bushcraft and Survival

    Turned out great. I would love a workshop tour. Thanks!

  29. Will do one, once I do some changes, right now it’s a mess.

  30. your projects are awesome you get a ton of views, which you deserve
