Folks,

Any suggestions on a storage cabinet/system?

- Multiple-drawer
- Light-weight but strong and durable (nothing from Sterilite!)
- Rain-proof
- 3-5 feet tall
- Wheels?

Thanks!

We built two of these this winter:
(not a great picture, but you get the idea)
multi-drawer kitchen cabinet, kitchen counter top, strong and durable - maybe not lightweight, good height for the average 5'10" + person, 4" casters under each corner, drawers will be screwed in for travel, not entirely rain-proof but we don't intend on leaving them outside unless it's during a comp where they are under a canopy and tarp them up for travel.

Hoping this cuts down time of unpacking/packing multiple totes for each competition. They will be loaded with clean utensils, supplies, towels, rubs, etc prior to leaving the house for the competition. Dirty utensils and towels will go in a cooler with soap and water to agitate on the way home so they are clean enough to drag to the wash machines without being a total mess.

We'll still have a few totes for electrical and smoker type of supplies.

What about the old Boy Scout patrol boxes?

Storage and counter space in one. Easy to make. Portable.

Rubbermade storage containers.
I love these things. Lightweight, stackable, rain proof. I know where everything is at a comp because each container is clearly labeled. It makes inventory a snap. And did I say they were RAIN PROOF! :-D

LOL first thing I said when I saw this was NICE! This is how well she knows me brothers.

BigBerry, are you wanting portable? If not Steelcase has some pretty decent cabinets.

This is a storage chest I made. Wanted it to be light enough for two people to load it in the back of a truck or RV with it full. Looked at rolling tool chests, they were too heavy. Bought the plastic chest and convertible hand truck from Sears, put it together with a few U-bolts. I wrap a bungie around it to keep the drawers closed in transit.

Busted before it even comes out of his mouth. It is nice though...

I'd hold out for the manshed, though.

How do you fit your tent and tables into those bins?

Those bins are 'more than meets the eye,' they transform into a table! :-D
