Default Shop Remodel

After 10 years in this shop I began losing stuff and not just pencils, either. Decided to remodel and get somewhat better organized.
This first pic is a cabinet with doors within doors.

Here is one side with two doors opened.

This was a counter in the county attorney's office. It was all open and I filled it with 22 drawers and 2 pull out shelves. Those are behind the doors just out of the picture. It's orange because my wife didn't like the color for her kitchen. The top is left over Bamboo flooring.

Gene,

That looks EXACTLY like my shop (LoL), except that I have tools scattered all over, saw dust about a foot deep and absolutley nothing in it's place.

YOURS looks great.
