I’m continuing my shop storage overhaul with DIY Garage Cabinets that match the wall cabinets I made late last year. These base cabinets have modular storage options and are made from sturdy ¾” plywood. You can learn how to build these shop cabinets and customize them to meet your needs. Full build plans available through the link above. #woodworking #storage #organization

1. For the folding workbench, build a frame out of 2×4 lumber approximately 4 feet long by 3 feet wide. Include two additional 2x4s for center supports.
2. Attach a 2×4 leger to the long side of the workbench using hinges. This leger will screw into the wall.
3. If you’re also using the workbench as an outfeed table, it should be slightly lower than the top of your table saw. Once you know that height, cut two 2x4s to serve as legs and attach them to the inside of the front of the frame using hinges.
4. Use a masonry drill bit and concrete screws to fasten the leger of the folding workbench to the wall.
Cut ¾” plywood for the bench top, and allow 1 1/2-2” around three sides for an overhang for clamping. Attach the workbench top to the frame by countersinking screws.

Standard Disclaimer: Putting your soft, squishy fingers near powerful sharp spinning things is dangerous. I’ve been doing this for a while and I know what I’m doing but even I’m not invincible. I take a lot of safety precautions based on my level of experience and not all of them are shown on camera. Don’t do anything you aren’t comfortable with. If it makes you nervous you’re probably doing it wrong. Don’t do anything stupid. Reapply sunscreen often and floss before bed. Is anyone actually still reading this?
Here is a tour and layout of my 2 car garage woodshop. I go over my woodworking equipment, what i like, don’t like and what I want to upgrade to in the future.
I have been trying to keep my videos around the 10 minute mark but this one went a little long so if you are only interested in one or a couple tools here is a list of when I talk about them during the video so you can jump to that section. Thanks for Watching!
