I built this for my garage. It is 7 feet tall, 4 feet wide, and 2 feet deep. This was not only my first wood project, but my first attempt at cabinet doors . I needed a cabinet to hold ‘stuff’. I put casters on it so I can move it. I have used it for about 9 months now and it is GREAT.

Yes it is mobile. I have over 300 pounds in it and can roll in with one hand. I have been VERY happy with it

How sturdy is it? What does the structure look like?

It is very sturdy. I built it several ago…I designed it “in my head” to fit fit my needs. The biggest keys are are to use sound structural wood connections ( I used biscuits in some areas, mortise and tenon and some areas, pocket screws in some areas..etc.) I have been VERY happy with it! It still does not lean, twist,, or fail.
“What does the structure look like?” I posted pictures of it.

Follow up…I pretty much just JUMPED right in with an idea for my first project and hoped for the best. I figured the worst to happen would be I had throw it out. Also my first attempt at rail and stile doors.
