The first thing to consider is how many and what type of cabinets you want. We suggest you build the basic shop cabinets in multiples of four or eight. This makes the most efficient use of your materials (see Cutting Diagrams).
The drawer units are best made in multiples of two. You'll be able to make seven drawers in each cabinet with only one sheet of 1/4-in. plywood, If you're only building tour of the basic cabinets, there will be plenty of 1/4-in, plywood left over for additional drawers, but if you're building eight, you'll have to buy more. No matter how many drawers you make, one sheet of 1/2-in. plywood is plenty tor two cabinets full of drawers, and a crosscut sled.
