A workshop cupboard is a facility designed from mild steel for the storage of various materials, like book material and non-book materials e.g. workshop tools, labouratory wares and reagents, etc; after operations in a chemical labouratory, mechanical workshop, or else where.
The construction of a workshop cupboard requires the consideration of lots of characteristics of the materials, which are used for the construction, such as physical and mechanical; chemical properties, service requirements, its fabrication process as well as cost of production.
For the constructional project, every necessary technical knowledge was employed; ranging from selection of engineering materials, to constructional procedures which includes sketching, drawing to scale, marking out, cutting, sand preparing, bending and folding, welding and painting, all geared towards the achievement of the construction of a steel cupboard.
In the constructional project, mild steel was chosen as the material of construction not because of its corrosion resistance, but for such properties as cost, strength and ease of fabrication.
