Ladder Filing Cabinet

Submitted by RoseOfShaz on Mon, 08/12/2013 - 12:57

I needed a filing cabinet but wanted something stylish and unique. At the same time, I was also looking for an excuse to build this beautiful ladder shelf. So I decided to combine the two and create a "ladder filing cabinet!" I adjusted the plans so that the legs were made of 1x3's for extra support and I used 1x2's for shelf trims. I also converted side-mount drawer slides into a bottom track for the drawer.

Built from Plan(s)
Estimated Cost
$60 (I used leftover wood to construct the drawer)
Estimated Time Investment
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Finish Used
Rust-o-leum Walnut. For the drawer, I whitewashed it with white paint.

Great job!
I'm curious, what did you use to hang the files on?
