It may seem like one more thing to haul around, but you need to use a shop-vac when fabricating, installing or fixing cabinets. This is a very handy power tool that will be worth the investment.

There are several ideas that I have about designing your home or business office cabinets. Designs should always have a well-thought-out plan for the computer equipment and file storage.
- How many file drawers do you need?
- Where will you hide all of the computer equipment wires?
- Do you need locks on your drawers? If so, how many?
- Do you want to have hidden magnet locks on the drawers?
- Where will you attach the power strip?
- Will you need letter or legal sized file cabinet rails in your drawers?
