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.
I have decided to organize and update my garage. I am moving away from open shelving to closed storage. I purchased my Craftsman cabinet at Lowe’s at a good price. They loaded in my SUV for me and away I went. I was able to assemble it fairly easily but some parts are heavy so it was useful to have another person help.
Although I liked a competitors product better, I selected the craftsman product because the shelves were rated to hold 100 pounds compared to the competitor being rated for 45 pounds. It took me about 2 hours to assemble which required two people at certain points. The instructions were not the easiest to follow; I had to read the first three steps 3 times each before I did anything. But after that, it was easy.
