I completed this finishing table for my shop that has plenty of storage and sits high enough to allow me to do finish work without bending over. So happy to have this one complete. The table is made from an old heavy desktop, 1/2 and 3/4 maple ply and plywood for the base. The table is on lockable wheels and utilizes full ext slides. The drawer handles are made from ipe, something I had in my scrap bin. I sprayed on a General Finishes arcrylic that I had left over from another job. The center cabinet has an adjustable shelf. Only regert, I made the bottom drawers about 1/4” too short to to house 1 gal containers of Watco Danish Oil, Mineral Spirts, etc.
