This work station project was started by a student woodworker at a local community college. He soon tired of waiting for his turn at the table saw and the router table and dropped out of the course. He’s currently in the process of building up his tool inventory and getting ready to enjoy woodworking in his own wood shop when he retires. The carcass came to me without doors, drawers, top or an adjustable shelf. A pretty straight forward job. The top is plastic laminate covered plywood with a maple edge splined in place. My local lumber yard had the top material already laminated on both sides so I managed to skip the mess of contact cementing plastic laminate to the plywood. The doors are tongue and groove with 1/4” baltic birch panels.

Nice cabinet but the doors got to go. I hate squatting or standing on my head to find objects shoved to the back. Needed 3 full extension drawers to make life easier. Not too late to convert it!!!!!!!!!
