I have been itching to start builng cabinets so that I can build up enough confidence/skill to get to redo my whole kitchen. I have an unusually high work bench in my shop and when I set my bench top drill press on it I can barely make use of it. So I thought having a small shop and all, why not build a mobile stand and incorporate as many cabinetry techniques as I can.
I constructed the carcass out of 3/4” birch plywood and assembled it using tongue and groove joinery courtesy of Sommerfeld’s bit set. The face frame is constructed from poplar cut to 2” widths and assembled via pocket holes and joined to the carcass using tongue and groove joinery.
The top consists of two 3/4” pieces of plywood. The top piece has been laminated and banded with plastic T-molding for a more durable and finished look. The drawer fronts were routed using one of Freud’s 3 piece raised panel bit set. The base was purchased off of amazon and is made by delta for a large shaper (basically I picked the base out first and designed around it).
It is very practical and moves with ease, a perfect addition to my shop.
