This wiki has been updated 10 times since it was first published in November of 2018. A typical kitchen cupboard or file cabinet is usually satisfactory for storing common, everyday items at home or in the office, but you’ll want something a bit more heavy-duty when security and durability are of greater concern. These steel cabinets are up to the task, as they’re more resistant to damage and will provide a sturdy space for locking up tools and other valuables. When users buy our independently chosen editorial selections, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

November 19, 2018:

The Seville Classics UHD20205B was the only option I discovered with a dedicated work surface, which added to its value. Included the Akro-Mils Craft for those who need to keep very small pieces organized, as most models aren’t designed for that use.
