Nice work, I liked the idea that you wired the cabinet up with extra outlets and thought through it enough to have one switched. Did you design a way to make it stationary at all? I made one for my friend once and he insisted on freewheeled casters, all four. Worked okay for small stuff but if you had to get a longer piece through it moved alot. Just a suggestion…
