I needed a stand for my drill press as it was just taking up to much space on my small bench, and was watching the wood whisperers video on the sliding dovetail box and said…hey i can do that…well after many “test pieces” i figured it out and this is what we’re left with, my wife was none to happy when she realized i used her parafin wax from her girly foot waxy thingy, but it worked great on the slides. The slides and handles are made of walnut from a dresser that the neighbor was throwing out…and the plywood was leftover from a soundbooth i built for the church, so all in all i have about 3 bucks wrapped up in this project for the hinges…that’s what i call a good deal :)

Hell yeah, that’s a good deal! BTW your shop doesn’t look well insulated, right? ;p

haha noticed that did ya? i need to insulate it, still debating on what i wanna finish it with, OSB or Sheetrock…but those projects are more long term, there’s only about 4 months out of the year when it’s to hot to work in there, not to shabby :)

Do 7/16 OSB- It’s not too expensive and you can hand all but the very heaviest things on it without having to locate a stud.

Fine DP cabinet. Good use of materials.
OSB is OK for walls. Just don’t paint it with water based paint!

being able to hang things is definitly a plus, because the studs are about 35” O.C. and not very consistent throughout, i guess part of the problem of the prefab deals. lesson learned
