I needed a permanent location for my Work Sharp and grinder, so I decided to put it on a cabinet full of drawers with full-extension glides. The top two drawers have bins for small hardware. The case is made of 2×4 lumber and 1/4” plywood. The drawer boxes are 3/4” plywood and the fronts are cherry. This was a quick build.

I like that it is on casters, I have found that in a small shop, or a large shop for that matter, having movable items makes life easier. Nice job.

Moveable, lots of storage, great looking and duel purpose.

I agree, being able to move things around is a big plus. Nice build, looks fantastic.

Cool. One of the many project I’m hoping to do this coming year. Hope it comes out half as nice as your’s. I like the contrasting drawers a very good look

Very nice project. The fact you built it from 2×4 material is even better!! I have some permanent storage cabinets that I’wanting to tear out this year as the previous home owner built them where they wanted then and didn’t consult with me LOL

Looks nice – Do you happen to have any generic drawings? I would like to build something very very similar – I just do not have the knack for the drawing part. lol

Have your say...
