One of the first things in my shop remodel I need to do is to remove my tall detailing cabinet from the floor. It's something I re-purposed from in my house, and it's only being used because I needed something.
A fairly good idea of what I'm referring to:
What will be stored inside of it is my RO detail machine (think of an angle grinder), the pads for it (what is currently inside of that orange toolbox), various bottles of not too big of a size, and those spray containers. Spray containers may hang off of a bar below the cabinet, depending on how much I need to fit in there.
For my design, I'm thinking of a side opening clamshell cabinet. Shelves deep enough on both sides to hold a single row of containers, about as big as a standard spray bottle. I don't want to store a ton in there, and my big containers of product are going to be kept inside so they aren't ruined when they freeze.
Two questions - one is a recommendation on which hinges to use. I want ones that will allow the cabinet to open 180 degrees flat against the wall, and won't blink at the weight I'm putting in there (30lbs tops on the hinged section).
The other is if there's anything I can line the inside with to get an insulating factor of about 10 degrees. If I can keep things from freezing inside the cabinet in most winters, I'd be happy. I figure even if it gets down to 15 outside, if I can get a 10 degree cushion inside the cabinet itself, I'll be okay.
