Okay Heres the lastest project. I needed a permanent home for my Hollow Chisel Mortiser. I had three criteria it needed to be tough, mobile, and provide storage. Made from cabinet grade maple ply, MDF, and solid poplar…all scraps I had laying around from other projects. I also was able to use some extra metal drawer sides/slides, that I had laying around the shop… still not sold on them, though they literally flew together, and seem pretty tough. Casters are from grizzly, 4” total lock type. the top is two layers of glued up mdf. two coats minwax high gloss poly. Probaly took me 6 shop hours to complete. Now I have storage for all my boring and mortising bits and stuff!!!!!

Well what do you think how’d I do??

Ken beat me to it, but it is nice when your tools finally have a home. Good job.

Looks like a nice solid functional cabinet NJ.. I would not be suprised if Rockler came knocking looking to add it to their catalogue.

Well done..
