oil drum cupboard Oil Drum Cabinet

Way too pricey for me at €399, plus shipping from Germany, but there’s plenty of detail in the pics to inform a re-make: Cut out the door, reinforce it from inside with two guy-wires strung to four bolts in the corners, line the cut edges with rubber edge trim, and attach a hardware-store handle and latch. Oh yeah, and fit some plywood circles into the drum’s grooves for shelves. Might add a drum dolly, to mine, to make a cool rolling toolbox. [via Dude Craft]
