A couple weeks back I ran across a great deal on a 16-32 Jet drum sander on CL. I already had plans to build a Flip Cart on the next good weather weekend, well I decided to knock out 2 projects at once since I was going to the lumber yard, figured I’d pick up a little extra ply. I did the same thing when I came across my router table on CL, started building a cabinet the next weekend. Something about a vision, gets my wheels going and all I want to see is the finished project come to life.

I love building shop furniture, since I’m fairly new to the hobby still, it gives the opportunity to practice joinery techniques and finishes while building shop storage. We had a absolutely gorgeous week/weekend, low 70’s for about 5 days, great garage temperature if you ask me!

Walnut trim

  • If you look close enough, there’s a sneak peak in the background of my Flip Cart I’m building at the moment, about 70% done and I’m filming a no comment video, start to finish. I’m in the process of editing and finishing up the project in the next couple weeks. Be on the lookout for ”Flip Cart – (Overbuilt Edition)” on my YouTube Channel, it’s going to be pretty cool.

Very nice. I like how the wood combos dress it up.

Those metal tool bases always seem to be a waste of space. You really solved that problem in style!
