Sliding-Door Shop Cabinet6

You'll be amazed at all the tools and supplies you can store inside (and outside) this slim cabinet.

  • Page 10: Figure 4
    The pulls should be 8" from the bottom of the door, not 6" as originally printed.

    The lower dimension should show a 3/8" groove in order to fit the roller, not 1/4" wide as originally printed. (For clarification, arrows and leader lines should be added to the top groove and note that as being 1/4" since it has to fit the pegboard. So in essence, "duplicate" the 1/4" info at the bottom at the top and change the bottom to 3/8".)
