John: I understand that I should build it first. The reason I want to think about the finish now is that when I put it in Sketchup, I can see how it will look. Also, Home Depot has a sale on paint for the next week so 30 dollar gallons for 20 bucks…
What “scratch” are you talking about? The bench osb scratched, or a project panel?
Main reason I am not building right now is because I have finals next week…

Rob: for sure painting the cabinet, with something. I want it to look good for a while…. LOL
Are Home Depot 5 inch locking swivel casters good? About 13 bucks each. And hold in excess of 380lbs each(4 inch ones hold 380, so 5 inch should be more).

WBBN: what is bc plywood? A grade?
I really don’t want to edge band because it is just shop furniture and I don’t have a the equipment to do that fast or well.

I am thinking of 1/2 inch plywood or OSB for the main cabinet and mdf or Formica for the top. All pieces glued except the work top because I will replace it when I gets to worn.

-- Marc Spagnuolo (standing in front of clamp wall): I think I need a few more . Me (owner of at least 8 clamps):.....?
