This cabinet is made with 3/4” Baltic Birch plywood, with maple trim around the top. The drawers are 1/2” Baltic Birch, with 3/4” Home Depot plywood fronts.
The size of the cabinet was determined by my large socket wrench set which now lives in the second drawer. The full extension slides allow me to open the case without removing it from the drawer – so I don’t have to clear some bench space for it whenever I need a wrench. The last photo shows the previous home for the socket set – a sliding shelf hung from an Ikea shelf.
The cabinet is on casters – fixed at the back, and double locking in front, so I can move it out of its corner if I need to work on something long.
I think I’ll remove the vise eventually, as I would like a little more flat space beside the drill press. (although any flat space in my shop/garage seems to soon get covered with “stuff”.)
