DIY Hardware Organizer Cabinet w/Easy Box Joints | Woodworking How-To

This hardware organizer cabinet is the perfect shop project to centralize hardware storage. If, like me, you have hardware all over the shop, this cabinet will help you organize your screws, bolts, nuts, washers, and other common woodworking hardware.

I’ve used mine primarily as a screw organizer, but I also have hold-down knobs, door hinges, bolts, nuts and washers, and threaded inserts inside of my hardware organizer cabinet.

I could have split this hardware organizer into many more cubbies, but I found that 22 cubbies is enough to help me organize my common hardware — I actually haven’t found a reason to organize bolts, washers, and nuts by size quite yet. Maybe that changes and I need to build another or a bigger hardware organizer cabinet 😅

Thanks as well to @Make Something with David Picciuto for his video on box joints that was incredibly helpful:

    Very cool 😎! Great work on the box joints. They are what they are: strong! I actually like the multi finger joints even though they get MONOTONOUS….. when cutting… Lol!! It’s great strong good looking cabinetry! Kudos!

    Looks great! I don’t have a table saw, but hoping to make something similar with a router soon! Thanks for the video!

    At what point did you think, may I made a mistake with all these finger joints? haha

    Hey great project! We got the plans and started our build. I wanted to check one thing: the plans call for 1/8" plywood for the bottoms and back I think. Our local Lowe’s doesn’t have anything thinner than 1/4" project panels. Is 1/8" really a thing you can buy or is that a typo?

    I love the dual storage per draw idea! Very clever! With having to make so many cuts, could you have made a similar finger joint jig but using a router instead of the table saw? The cuts would be as thick as a dado stack. Only downside is you would have to go slower cutting but at least you would make fewer passes? Some T track on a router table and a jig could be a great alternative if you don’t have a table saw that accepts dado stacks.
