  • Another fantastic Rogue Engineer project. This is definitely on my to-do list.
    By grover959, on March 7, 2017

  • Just a suggestion, you might want to replace the USB connector Type A receptacle to the more standard (on this type of item) Micro-B or Mini-B. That way you could use standard chargers and cables, rather than a Type-A to Type-A cable (which isn't all that common in the charging world.)... Anyway, great design, and I love the "simulated" frosted glass.
    By ARudzki, on March 7, 2017
    • Thanks ARudzki! And yes, I agree with the charging port idea and did look for one but wasn't successful in finding one. If you know of a Micro or Mini USB port I'm sure other would appreciate a link below. Thanks again!

  • An option to try would be Samtec: http://suddendocs.samtec.com/catalog_english/scrus.pdf They are a bit pricey (a bit? LOL), but you could also use their wording to do Google searches to maybe find cheaper versions from someone else.
    By ARudzki, on March 7, 2017

  • No question is a dumb question, right? So why this step: To give the polycarbonate sheet a frosted look, simply sand one side with an orbital sander until you get an even scuff across the entire sheet. Thanks for a much better option than the one I cobbled together with what I had on hand.
    By MichelleO, on March 7, 2017
    • The frosted look helps disperse the light more evenly (IMO) and prevents the bright direct light.
      By Rogue Engineer, on March 7, 2017

  • That is a great idea. I have been wanting a light box and this will be just the thing. I do a lot of adult coloring and was trying to come up with a way to color with out the outline showing and this is just the thing.

    By Debra12, on October 30, 2016

  • To get the template print the "View Project PDF"
    By Pigsmoker, on October 30, 2016

  • How can I print out the steps for the Lighted Bats? I have tried everything.

  • I don't see a link for the plans that are mentioned throughout. Am i overlooking the obvious?
    By shnu, on May 2, 2016
    • Sorry about the delay, the plans are now attached as a link in the description. Happy building!
      By Rogue Engineer, on May 4, 2016
    • Thanks, see them now. Just be warned, I'm going to blame you for being late to our Mother's Day plans this weekend!
      By shnu, on May 4, 2016
    • Haha, I'll totally take the blame.
      By Rogue Engineer, on May 4, 2016
    • Almost done, just need to attach the doors. Seeing it in person, I wish I'd splurged on nicer plywood. This is worth it!
      By shnu, on May 17, 2016

  • Great use of space.
    By user113820, on May 3, 2016

  • I would like to see how/method was used to mount the storage cabinet.
    By halvara1, on May 3, 2016
    • The plans are now attached as a link in the description. In there I show how it was anchored to the wall studs with 2-1/2" wood screws.
      By Rogue Engineer, on May 4, 2016

  • Click on his BIO, the link to his site is there. https://www.ryobitools.com/user/rogue_engineer/profile Rogue Engineer is the only DIY'er that I follow. This cabinet is killer!!

  • Hey everyone! I'm so sorry for the delay, the PDF should have been included when this went live but we are working to get it added today or tomorrow.
    By Rogue Engineer, on May 4, 2016

  • hi there, I received follow up replies but the link to the replies at ryobi nation isn't working and has been checked by windows with comments about the link not responding FYI :)
    By woodstock, on May 4, 2016

  • Hey RYOBI Nation, we apologize for the delay in getting the project plans to you. They are live and ready to download! We can't wait to see you build this awesome cabinet!
    By RYOBI Nation, on May 4, 2016

  • It is above. Just click on "provided cut list" picture (above) and the Plan pops up. Then "save as", to Your computer files.
    By Tug Hercules, on May 4, 2016

  • Does anyone else have a problem getting back to this forum when replies are posted. I got an ermail from ryobination re a comment by dragonslayerone but cannot get to the page on wither my laptop or pc. Fianlly had to come the circuitous route to get the plans Thanks Rogues
    By woodstock, on May 5, 2016
    • Hi woodstock, thank you for bringing this to our attention! We are working on fixing this now, thank you!
      By RYOBI Nation, on May 6, 2016

  • I've just done this build. Love it! Where did you get the base cabinets, under the work bench?
    By cbosso, on May 28, 2016

  • How do you think this would turn out if different hinges were used? I'd rather not pay close to $50 a pop for the hinges. Maybe two or three smaller hinges for each one?
    By StarkIndustrias, on September 8, 2016

  • My son gave me a gift card and plans for garage organization. This fit perfectly into our goals. This was SUCH a fun project to do together. I have never tackled something like this before. We had our local Home Depot cut the plywood and peg board for us. We bought a portable Ryobi table saw and a Kreg jig -- so satisfying to learn to use these tools safely and build something so great!
    By davenorth, on October 7, 2016

  • Great project. Whats the measurements of the dado cuts? How far down on the side panels were they cut? It looks like the 2 1/2 framing bracket connects to the side panels ( 12 X 36) above the dado cuts.
    By Pgibson821, on December 1, 2016

  • Hi Rogue great job on the tool storage but what the size of the piano hinge ? x 30"
    By fubarsport, on February 3, 2017
    • 30 inch hinge. Cut to 28.
      By Jeff Homan, on February 20, 2017

  • I am using the best finished plywood. Real smooth looking..cut all materials yesterday and will do the Dado cuts (will be using a router for this job). Peg board at home depot was 3/16 so I will have to make slight adjustments to certain areas. Pictures will follow no later than tomorrow I hope.
    By Jeff Homan, on February 20, 2017

  • Love this
    By Lookout, on July 11, 2017

  • Can't seem to download the plans. Click on the link but nothing happens?
    By Young Al, on July 18, 2017


  • I started putting this together and noticed that the cut list calls for 5 7/8" wide dividers but with a 1/4"x1/4" dado the plants call for they actually need to be 6 1/4" wide.
    By D_Weasel, on June 4, 2018

  • I built this and it turned out great.  I left out the two most central dividers to give myself a wider space where I keep all my manuals. Thanks!
    By dfoliver, on September 18, 2018

  • I am unable to download the plans. It says that they can not be found.
    By Tbarton601, on May 6, 2019

  • This project was a fun build! Thank you for sharing your plans.
    By mwierzbicki, on November 7, 2019

  • Hi awesome project, I was seeking clarity in regards to materials - 
    • QTY 2 - 1 X 6 X 8'

    Is this ply also or pine? And is it 6 inch by 8 feet? 

    Thank you David
