This has been a project that’s a long time coming. I built these cabinets over a few months to try and get my tools cleaned up. These cabinets are maple, the drawers are soft maple and they’re all dovetailed. All the drawers have 22” full extension sliders which turned out so much better than I had hoped. I couldn’t justify buying the garbage can “kit” online so I tried building my own and it came out wonderfully. It’s completely functional (and heavier duty than the one in my kitchen). As you can see, my daughter is standing in a fully extended top drawer, so these cabinets will hold pretty much anything you throw at them.
I tried my first hand at laminating a counter top and overall, it went pretty well. It smells horrible, but the finish on the laminate is great and repels most of my mess (brake cleaner, solvents, etc.). I love working with wood, but I threw in a picture of my favorite hobby at the end.
