« Part 5: pedestal done Part 6 of shop bench with lots of storage series Part 7: Face Frame done »

the three drawer boxes are secure to the pedistle, the MDF “cap” is on, the melamine ends are on, and the plywood back panel secure…..

this “chassis” is turning out to be quite the tank…. and I’m getting a little concerned how in the world I’m going to get it down off of my wood working bench :^O

I went ahead and put the drawer fronts on the bottom three drawers, since these are referenced off the bottom…. the other levels will have to wait untill they are installed, as they will reference off the drawer below.

and the top is ready to be installed and banded. This is 1” thick MDF with laminate on both sides. I glued this up over a decade ago as part of a ill conceived plan to make a jumbo sized router table. I wound up buying a Rockler table and this has sat in the corner ever since.

I must admit that I’m starting to burn out on this project…. as I’ve tallied up my glue up sessions

12 drawers
3 drawer boxes
1 pedistle
1 boxes to pedistle
1 cap over boxes
2 melamine ends
1 back panel
21 glue up sessions :^O
