Part 1: Base Cabinet

03-31-2014 01:26 AM by lycilph | 0 comments »

I’ve been using open shelving units hung on my shed walls for years because I have issues with creepy crawlies, but I’m wanting something to store smaller items in that is more compact. I also wanted to try out the $5 track saw I made from an old circular saw. (PS: it works GREAT) I started off by building a cabinet from 18mm plywood: 668w x 865h x 750d. The 668 may seem an odd dimension but it allows me to make the drawer bases from a 12mm plywood sheet ripped down the middle....

Part 4: All finished

Well, there wasn’t much left to do. I’ve added false fronts to the drawers and a simple pull. I have rather large hands so I don’t like the standard drawer handles that you can get. I made some from some scrap wood I had lying around, and they seem to work pretty well, plus they contrast pretty nicely. The drawers are pretty square, but once you put the false fronts to them they are snug on one side and there is a gap on the other side. You can’t really tell fro...
