Got the LED lights installed today so the cabinet project is done. It wasn't too bad, just a little time consuming like everything else. I would highly recommend the Saber cabinets. They are good quality and came in at less than half the cost of the brands like Lista and Baldhead. The main reason they are less is the fact that you have to do some assembly and installation is on you. The metal is the same gauge as the higher priced companies and the construction is excellent. Now comes the job of moving everything from the old tool boxes and shelves.....GB

A good look, Gary!

Too modern for me... But, I bet you won't have the problems; I have in trying to find a place to work on something. And the problems I have in trying to find the correct tool to do the job in the first place... LOL

Looks great!

Some garages are to park cars in, some are like showplace museums and some are also to work on stuff. I can see yours getting some work done.

First class. Doesn't look like you'll need to expand anytime soon.
I found that I had to put small labels on my cabinets to
cut back on opening drawers and doors to find stuff.
Your set up has the look of a huge Matco tool box

I have been staring at all those drawers for two days now, trying to decide where to put everything so it will be as handy as it is now in all the old boxes and shelves. The labels on the drawers may be a real possibility....at least til I learn where I put everything!

I have shop envy for sure... Sweet set up.
Does that Mfg offer the 6' tall single or double door units as well. They are great for storing coveralls, rags etc to keep welding sparks etc safe and locking up larger tools like cut off saws, belt sanders and items in plastic cases.

Saber does offer the locker style tall cabinets. I may end up adding one or two later for paint and powder coating items after I see how far the storage stretches in what I got......I'll let you know if I need anything hauled off Marshall, stop by anytime.

By the way Rick, the cabinets are warehoused and shipped from Reno. Not to far from you in Sacramento....
