Default Garage wall cabinets from 3/4 OSB

All,

During my recent garage renovation, I had some left-over pieces of 3/4" T&G OSB. Since I need some wall cabinets to get things re-organized, I've been thinking of my low cost options and the OSB seems like it might offer an option. However, I am concerned about achieving strong corner joints. With wood or Plywood, I would use regular yellow wood glue and screws or finishing nails. But, with the OSB, will that work?

Merry Christmas

Hi Thrifty - I do anything to OSB I would with plywood. I think for cabinets I would be tempted to use it smooth surface in to facilitate wiping out and such. Wouldn't necessarily be pretty but they are garage cabinets

The problem with experience is I usually get it immediately after I need it.

Hi TTG

Yes it will work by letting the T & G bit set do all the work for you,a pocket hole screw here and there ,it will be strong , put a face frame on the front side to hang the doors on and to cover up the OSB stock..and to dress it up just a little bit.

I would suggest you get the video from summerfeld tools so Marc can show you how easy it can be done..it's only 10.oo and it's worth every dime..

Bob,

I'm sorry, but I didn't take your advice. While on a trip to the local Habitat for Humanity ReStore for some old doors, I found a group of new kitchen cabinets from Lowe's. In my area, Lowes clearances their building supplies thru charities like HFH. In any event, the price was pretty good and anything that I overpaid went to a reputable charity.

So, I got some pretty swanky cabinets for holding the vehicle stuff and mechanics tools. I even mounted a shelf to hold the trickle chargers and some pegboard to hang the frequently used tools.

Now, I just need to find those cheap doors to finish the first job.

Have good one.
