I want to line one wall in my shop (approximately 30' long) with a variety
of cabinets. I do not like the kitchen-like layout with a 3' high cabinet
sitting on the floor with a countertop, a space in between, and a 3' high
cabinet hanging from the wall above. I dislike this arrangement because I
have doubts about how much weight my wall can hold, and I always find the
space between the upper and lower cabinets to be too small and too dark.
I'm thinking about making several 3' cabinets (with countertops) and several
8' cabinets (without countertops), and butting them together. All of them
would be floor standing, and none would be hanging from the wall. Has
anyone tried this type of layout?
I can easily make the 3' cabinets. I have plans from a variety of books,
magazines, New Yankee workshop, etc. which I can steal ideas from.
I haven't found any plans for the 8' tall cabinets. I don't want to
reinvent the wheel, and I don't want to build a cabinet only to find out
after the fact that my design was a disaster. Does anyone know of any plans
for such a cabinet?
