Rip cut 5.5” wide strips of plywood with a circular saw.
Clamp a straight edge to a full sheet of plywood and cut strips of 4 strips plywood 8 feet long. Cut 5 of these strips 8 feet long. A table saw makes it easier to make precise cuts but a circular saw works fine as well.
Make your cross cuts. Use a miter saw to cross cut the strips of plywood to the lengths shown in the diagram.
Cross Cut list:
3’-10” x 2
3” x 55
2” x 10
8.75” x 3
3’ x 1
Assemble the frame. The frame for this station is made by stacking and screwing the pieces of plywood together. Use 1 ¼” screws to screw the layers of plywood together.
Sand the shelves. The shelf pieces of plywood need to be sanded down about 1/16” so that the slide in the notches of the frame.
Cut the door. Measure the size of the frame and then cut a 2 pieces of plywood to use as a door.
Glue and screw the 2 door pieces together. We want the door to be a double thick piece of plywood so glue and screw the 2 layers together.
Paint the door. I painted the front face of the door with chalkboard paint.
Install the door and hardware. Use hinges to attach the door to the frame and use a piece of cord to stop the door at a horizontal open position. Drill holes in the top of the frame and in the door to tie the cord. A chain will also work.
Customize the shelves. You can customize the shelves for different tools and accessories.
