« Part 6: Fitting the drawers Part 7 of Mobile Desk Drawers series Part 8: Drawer pulls, adjustment and final sanding. »

Another scorcher… just did some work in the morning until it go too hot to work in the garage.

Made a couple drawers, the last two for this mobile drawer cabinet (I’m building two simultaneously).

Then I cut the MDF top, and trimmed it with pine.

Using my Nobex saw, I mitered the four corners.

Installed the four casters…

Just sat the two new drawers in the cabinet, just to make sure the width was ok.

Will finish the project this coming weekend. I hope.

Sir Fatty,

Nice work, thanks for sharing!

How do you like that miter saw. I have been thinking of getting one for my oldest son!

Hi Nate,

I like it a lot… elected to buy it instead of a power miter saw about 15 years ago. It has the original blade too.. It needs to be secured to a surface when using though, otherwise it’s difficult to use.

Have a good week, don’t blow your fingers off on Wednesday, you need them for woodworking.
