Made some Tamerack cabinets for my shop a couple years ago and suddenly everybody wanted cabinets. Oh, everyone seemed to want a rolling table, too. Mine are made of Tamerack but these that I made for others is tongue and grooved pine. I used dado’s in the 3/4 inch plywood, pocket holes for the face frame, and made a picture like frame using pocket holes and plugs of oak to stabilize the door. No glue for the support, just over size holes and screws to allow for movement. The tongue and groove is put together like a bread board. Keeping things looking cabin-like and stable is almost a contradiction. The shelves are 3/4 inch plywood with a 3 inch wide maple front edge biscuited and glued. Shelves are adjustable. Water-based poly finish. The table is reclaimed pine from a construction project and I used locking wheels that lock the rolling and lock the swivel action, too. I did not put a bottom shelf on so I can use this space for vacuums and have no obstruction when moving out to the driveway for some fresh air work.Legs are rabbited and lag bolt and blue keeps it all perpindicular.

The cabinet on the wall is Tamerak except for the double-wide plank 3rd board down; this one is from my late father and it came from the basement walls. I have this old notty pine board running at the same spot in all my cabinets in my shop. Nothing no one will notice of course. I wanted to keep the horizontal look going throughout the shop. Well, the bar has vertical. Hmmm.
