Well the other day I finally got some 3/16 hardboard and had the blue box rip it to the 24.25 inches to fit on the top. I put drops of glue in key spots to keep it from moving. I then installed a rip cutoff from my hand tool bench in slow progress, damn nails imbedded/hidden in some have me frustrated. Glued screwed and plugged this to the front edge of the top. I wiped on some Early American stain to pop the grain a bit more, it has lots of figure imho.
Fast forward to today. I was up earlier than usual, so before I went to my physical therapy session, I went out to shop and cut some AC plywood to rough dimensions for a cabinet to go into the center section. I will have 2 more drawers and 2 cubbies for storage. After PT I came home and put the ROS to work turning the plywood into almost cabinet grade. Then I remeasured and trimmed to final size, pocketholed everything together and put in place. Next step is to put together drawers and install, finish face frame, then make drawer fronts, cabinet doors.
Once bottom is done ill work in wall above. Remove the recycled, practically useless cabinets and make more suitable/useable storage. Something like Norm’ s shop hutch perhaps.
Right section will remain unfinished till I make drill press mobile.
Tablesaw cabinet will get same faceframe, drawer front, cabinet door treatment
