no previous part Part 1 of Mobile Desk Drawers series Part 2: Finishing the side panels »

It may be 90 degrees here in the Chicago suburbs, but that is no excuse to stay out of the garage! Today I started work on the mobile drawers to match the two desks I previously built. Each unit will be four drawers, each utilizing 3/4 drawer extensions and lockable casters.

The goal is for me today is to start the side panels. Each will be pine with an MDF core. When completed, it will look much like a cabinet door (for now).

Dado set with the ZCI and sacrificial fence:

The boards are rabbeted:

And the pieces are dry fit together:

Glue and clamp time, no fasteners will be used.

That’s it for today… another weekend flew by.
