Here is a rolling drill press cabinet that I made. It is made of two components, an inner tray system and the base part. I first built the tray system for the Lee Valley tool tray system available here. I obviously need a few more to complete it. I then built the rest of the cabinet around that. The tray system is made with a series of 1/4” kerfs in 3/4” plywood. The plans (also available at the link above) mostly dictated the width that the stand would be.
The remainder of the stand is just 1/2” plywood. Top and bottom are two pieces glued together. I use the bottom to store plans, magazines, etc.
Casters are “2 thermoplastic casters that I got at Princess Auto.
The only thing I would change for next time would be to move the cavity that you can see in picture 6 from the back of the cabinet to the side. It would make storing stuff in that space a little easier and save me from having to pull it out from the wall whenever I wanted something out of that space. If you have any ideas on how I could remedy that, send them my way!
Thanks for looking.
