Just finished this Dovetail Jig cabinet. I upgraded the jig which I have mounted to an old bench in the corner. It was always in the way to use the bench, so I decided to make it moble. The frame was made from some recycled spruce I had in the shop and the top was a panel of an old door. The unit is about 20” x 20” x 36”. The casters are lockable so the thing won’t move and they were scrapped form and old machine they were throwing out at work. As you can see I took full advantage of the jig on the cabinet drawers. The drawers are 6” high and have plenty of room in them for all the router and dovetail parts. The drawer side was finished out with scrap cherry and rounded over with a 3/4” round over bit. The sides are pine raised panels that I glued up from an old dresser I got at the recyling center. The handles came from the old dresser. Everything was recyled accept the glue, drywall screws and nails. I think is came out pretty good.
