« Part 3: Dog Holes and Clamp slots Part 4 of New Mobile Work Station series no next part

The weather finally cooperated so I could finish up my mobile workstation. A friend donated a piece of Formica so I didn’t have to buy a whole sheet just for a partial. He had ordered some to do some repairs on his Grady White offshore boat so the Formica is a little off white. Sorta in between white and light gray.

Turns out it was a perfect fit. :-)

I had to do the lamination outside because there is a hot water heater in the garage and no way was I going to take a chance of a mishap.

Here are the final pics.

Glue up.

I trimmed the edges and the holes/slots, then ran a slight chamfer around all edges. I am a happy camper.

The pocket hole jig all set up and ready to go.

Hope you enjoyed following my build.

Man, Do I ever like the end results. In the military venacular, “Ya Done Good!”

I got a chance to give the workstation a workout today while building a shop cabinet. It works great in that it provides all sorts of ways to clamp workpieces. I clamped the sides in place while I drilled the shelf pin holes. That went really easy.

Then I set up the Kreg jig and drilled the pocket holes to assemble the box and attach the face frame. That has become an easy task also.
