Long delay in posting. Have been very busy at work and havent had time to post.
In this session, I installed the face frame and doors on the router base as well as mounted the table top.
I started with the finished outer case
And ended with the drawers installed
Steps in this session
1. Installed hardwood drawer runners
2. Mounted face frame and caster wheels
3. Drill, tap and mount top
4. Build and install drawers
Step 1 – Install hard wood runners
Rip hard wood runners on table saw
Drill and counter sink runners
Use block plane to chamfer runners
I then cut spacers from hardboard. I like the look of graduated door sizes, so each drawer is 1.5” smaller than the previous.
Use spacers to glue and screw runners in place
One completed side
Step 2 – Install casters and face frame.
Once the inner cabinet is done, we can finalize the outer details.
Create face frame using pocket screws and attach
Screw in locking casters
Step 3 – Mount table.
I could not bring myself to just screw in the table top to the base, so instead I set it up to bolt the top to the cabinet base.
Mark mounting locations
Drill holes for insert mounting
Tap hole for brass insert
Install brass insert
Mount top to cabinet using 1/4” bolts
Step 4 – Build and Install Drawers
Use spacers to set rip width for drawers
Rip 1/2” plywood drawer parts
Cross cut using RAS
Since my router is now out of commission, I used the TS to cut a groove for 1/4” plywood bottoms
I then cut drawer side rabbets on TS
Used shoulder plane to clean up joint
Time to glue up the pieces
Since all components are plywood, I can glue up everything for strength. First I glue in front.
Check for square and then nail in assembly
Last step is too install everything
