« Part 12: Can I have that time back? Part 13 of Yet Another Craftsman 113 Saw Blog series Part 14: Who was messing with the thermostat? »

Had a little time this past weekend and was able to get another drawer done in spite of the rain. I cleaned and arranged a little so I had enough room at the garage door to be able to spin the workstation around and face it out the opened door. I had already made the pieces for this drawer but after deciding to do the router end, just left them until I got back to it. At the time I tried mixing some of the gray paint I have with some white and for some reason it didn’t make the lighter gray I wanted, so I just painted them white. This was before I decided to start leaving the drawers bare and just spraying them with a clear coat. I really like how big this is so I can store blades and jigs for the table saw as well as for the circular saw.

After I was done the thought struck me, why did I overlap the front instead of recessing it like I did on the end? I really couldn’t come up with an answer other than “I don’t know.” I may go back and cut down the front, and move the slides back so that it’ll recess. Right now it doesn’t really bother me enough to.

With Christmas looming I may not have a chance to get back to this for a while. I’m hoping maybe I can though. I’d really like to get the two slightly smaller drawers that go in to the right of this one done.
