This unit is 48 inches wide by 6 foot, 6 inches long by 34 ½ inches high. The base section is made of 3/4 fir plywood with all the edges banded in white oak and ends are laminated. The top is made up of 2 sheets of ¾ inch particle board and 1 sheet of ¼ inch tempered masonite which is trimmed in 4/4 quarter sawn white oak. The drawer covers and doors are tongue and groove construction, with a laminate/masonite panel. They are made out of 4/4 quarter sawn white oak. The 5 drawers have KV8400 full extension drawer slides on them and are made out of 1/2 fir plywood. The doors have half overlay commercial hospital hinges with magnetic catches. The power hand tool section has one adjustable shelf with 255 standards and clips. The plastic trays are 5 ½ by 11 and hang on a metal plate from U-Line. It has 3 inch swivel/locking casters from Peachtree. I put on 2 coats of natural Watco oil inside and out, then 2 coats of wax applied with 000 steel wool.

For you guys that asked if I ever get my shop dirty, yes I do, and clean it up after every job.

Loucarb: The dust collector is a Temp142CX from Penn State Industries. I am very pleased with this unit. If you look at my blog “Dust Collection In” you can read more about the unit and how I put it in. Thanks for asking.
