A very nice video. Coincidentally I made a sandpaper hanging shelf too recently and even though my shop is pretty utilitarian I did dovetail it just to keep my hand skills up, so I had a little chuckle when you mentioned that. I would like to point out that it wasn’t a dado you routed in the cabinet sides for the backing, it was a groove. Dadoes by definition always go across the grain. This is the only thing I know about woodworking so I had to mention it. Your new workbench seems to be working out very well for you. Another great project. I think woodworking is an ideal hobby for farmers because most are so handy and even better if they have some woods on their property where they can harvest some trees for their projects.

stefang, You are right, it was a opportunity to build my skill at cutting dovetails. I regret not cutting dovetails in the drawers of my worktable. I could have showed them off every time I pulled a drawer open… Impatience got the best of me! You are right again about having a woods one can harvest trees from. I have a stack of lumber from the woods drying in the old corn crib! The wood I used to build the box of the cabinet that stores the sanders was made of hackberry.
