The Craftsman 2000 Garage Cabinet was exactly what I needed for storage in my garage. It took me about 3 hours to assemble but it would probably go faster for two people. It is not a project I would recommended for a novice since the directions are not extremely detailed.
I think there are a handful of ways the cabinet could be improved but I can not complain about the finished product. It looks good, its strong, stable, and it securely holds the heavy gear I packed it with. I am considering buying a second one
We were having a garage sale and I wanted a way to lock up my hand tools so I could not get distracted and someone walk off with my nice stuff. This was so easy to assemble, you cant do it wrong because the way its set up. If I knew how great this was I would have bought it a very long time ago.
Now lay the cardboard from the box on the floor and use this area for assembly which prevents scratching of the panels and also provides some cushion for your knees. When assembling the components using a #2 Phillips screwdriver with a fatter handle than the one that come with the cabinet will allow you to tighten the screws more easily. If you plan on adding the optional swivel wheels order them right away as they seem to often be out of stock. I also ordered some additional shelves which arrived well packaged and damage free. Overall this is one of the best assemble as home cabinets I have ever seen.
