Copied a project by bluekingfisher. Plywood caracass, pine drawers with 1/2 bottom, full extension 12” slides. About 23 wide by 14 deep overall. A couple of rabbets on the bottom piece, pocket hole joints elsewhere. Sits of 3 1/2 inch locking casters over the base. Painted hunter green to go with the Grizzly green (not quite the same) of the drill press.

Stellar job on the drill press cabinet…..My old bud, David (bluekingfisher) will be happy to hear you used his pattern…. I really like your shop cabinets in the background…..Stellar job on the build of those, too….very nice…...Nothing like having plenty of storage no matter where you need it…....mighty fine…..!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks so much for the comments. @jackthe lab: The back of the cabinet it pretty plain, and I didn’t put angle brackets to hold up the extended top the way bluekingfisher did – but I have a spare set and will probably add them some day.
