Looks like great storage in a portable unit.

Nice cabinet. Looks beefed up enough to take some abuse. The pocket hole screws will hold up great in that plywood.

All hail the pocket screw!

Looks solid without being overly “thick”, nice clean work!

The only thing I question is the handles, you’ll never be able to move that if it is full 8^)
Of course if empty or you just want to trick someone into throwing out their back, perfect!

Very nice.

Do the drawers have latches? If no then when you lift it by the handles and it tips slightly the drawers will roll out on the nice easy slides and the whole thing will fall on its face. DAMHIKT

Simple solution: move handles toward front to shift CG to rear.

Thanks everyone! This thing weighs a ton. I can’t lift it by myself using the handles. The handles are too far apart for one person. So my wife will help me move it to below the workbench.

Good point on the drawers opening when I move it. I’ll make sure not to move it with the drawers in it.

I think I’m going to make dividers and some trays for the tall drawers.
