Oh dear, getting serious now.
Next you'll be wanting spanners and stuff
What would I do with those?
Or, I could be like you and fill the cabinets with cleaning supplies
This may sound a bit obvious but are there any local auctions near you? I would attend one here from time to time (it is a weekly auction where ordinary Joe's bring their pruck)and stuff sells really cheap. Quite often there's all manner of small business clearance etc. There's bound to be similar across the pond. Always worth a look. Some of it looks almost new and quite often is.
Mark, that is a good idea - hadn't thought of that. I'll take a look and see if there are any auction / sale rooms local.
Steel cabinets and oak tabletops - works well even in cold garages - like mine.
Stig, steel is the route I'd prefer to go.
