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.
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 needed a place to lock up all my chemicals from my kid in the garage. This matches my craftsman toolbox set and workbench. Assembly was a little tricky and i recommend leaving the front button head bolts loose until you have the feet adjusted to align the doors properly.
I honestly do not know what others are talking about for difficulties assembling or the instructions. It’s is absolutely impossible to assemble the panels backwards or wrong. The backs are identical and the sides are identical the only pieces different are the top and bottom. Put this together by my self in about an hour. Final tightening is best done with another person holding wrench but not impossible to be done alone. Cabinet is excellent quality. DO make sure you inspect the box for damage at the store and if you see any at all ask for another one or u will be bringing it back
