Finally!!!!! Literally 7 months later I finished the video and project. I have so much more respect for the podcasters and bloggers in our hobby now, OMG this was a lot of work. Hope you enjoy because I think this was my last video from start to finish.

Here is my Project link to the Flip Top Cart

Great Video and Great project as well. I like your plan best of all I’ve seen. The thick sides and locks are a good idea. Please do make more videos.

First off, I DID watch the whole thing. (C’mon, some of you admit it. You gave up after the first few minutes!) Nice job on the vid. It must have taken you 5 of those 7 months just to edit it all together. :-)

. And I’m betting your wife was NOT in on the editing process. Otherwise, there’s no way on God’s green earth she would have let you leave her in at the 9 minute mark wearing her JAMMIES! :-)
See there, now all you guys that gave up watching early, are now scrambling to go back and jump to the nine-minute mark, arent’cha? :-)
Anyhooo, GREATcabinet! I enjoyed watching the build

Great job on the project and video. I agree; making a video is a lot of work and I do appreciate folks like you who put in all that extra effort. One comment regarding safety: I noticed you did not wear safety glasses when using the table saw, router table, and miter saw. Stay safe, so we can see more projects.

All I can say is a big thanks, because this will be invaluable to me when I build one of these for myself. I think you did a great job with the cabinet and with the video. You will probably hear from me in the future, when I’m using it to do my build.

And BTW, way nice shop and nice router set up. What was that tool you were about to use at 6mins into the video that was red with a long black nose?

Julian – Your not the first nor the last to notice my safety concern, I noticed it when I was editing the video, I almost never have glasses on. I’ll make an effort to wear them moving forward. Young and dumb! lol

Joe – My wife usually goes to the gym when i’m in the shop, so those were gym clothes. However I was filming the finished project the other day and the garage door to the house opened up and she was in jammies! had to cut that out! lol

Lance very nicely done project and video too. I can certainly see where BOTH were a lot of work. Thanks for the post I found it very interesting. Is this project your own design or were you working from some plans?

Nice job on the video, Lance. You probably had a ton of footage to make a 13 minute time lapsed video. Now on to that bedroom set, right?

Correct Kyle!! lol I’ve got 2 side tables to make for the living room next, then off to the shop again for the torsion box assembly table, then this upcoming Fall I’ll start the bedroom set. I’m a little OCD when it comes to woodworking, i like everything to be organized, I hate assembling project on the ground or TS.

Ron – The design concept is nothing new, the only thing I haven’t seen out there is the 3/4” rod & bearing system.

Outstanding build video! I’m about the same age as you and have had a passion for wood working for a long time. I started pursuing it more since last year. I’m not sure what your occupation is, but its great you can fund the shop you have built.

Great job on both buddy, came out great… Seems we buy alot of the same exact tools. I really like the idea of clamping the squares to the panels when using the flush trim bit to clean up the glued on hard wood. Great work, look fwd to seeing more. Blondie goes to the gym while I’m out there in the shop as well and yawns watching me too LOL
Talk to you soon
