I thought I would be 100% done on this today and everything was looking good, then when I mounted the chop saw and bolted it down, it placed just enough weight to drag on the drawer and make me grit my teeth. oh well, tomorrow I’ll pull out the drawer and work the problem. Other than that, I made a matching walnut drawer handle to mount as soon as I finish getting the fit just right. The majority of the project is 3/4” furniture grade oak plywood and I added some walnut trim pieces and inlay to the drawer to improve the overall looks. With the wings folded out it measures just over 8 foot wide so I can cut 12 foot boards with no problem. I also made a slide out shelf to mount my grinder to. There are two pieces of oak 2×2 glued together mounted to the bottom of the shelf so I can place it on my work bench vise. I plan on making two more matching carts. One will be for my spindle/belt sander and the other will be for the thickness planer. That will make moving them around in the shop much easier.
