It’s been a while since I’ve worked on the rolling cabinets. I had other projects that I wanted to work on and, quite frankly, the cabinets were just not working the way I wanted. So, I’m starting over with a new design that will hopefully work better.
So the plan now is to rabbet the edges of the op and bottom, inset the sides and then put in a full inset back. This should give a lot more stability and strength to the cabinet. I also have a plot for a adjustable height top that, if it works out, will make these cabinets super useful as infeed / outfeed support on the tablesaw as well as worktables and such.
I started the rebuild on the first cabinet today and got to work with the adjustable dado blade that I picked up. I can see why they are the poor cousin to the stacked dado but I was able to get this one for $3.50 so I guess I can’t complain too much.
It’s definitely different working with the rabbets as you have to do some interesting maths to make your thing come out the right size. I suppose it might be different if I weren’t trying to fit a pre-existing “socket”. Not to mention the fact that I don’t have the locking casters I want for it yet.
One thing at a time.
