The first step in this build is to layout my cut lines based on the cut sheet I have made, which you can download here.
After my lines are marked, I begin cutting the plywood down into panels using a circular saw.
Once my panels are cut to width, I cut them to length using my table saw.
After all parts are cut to their respective sizes, I begin assembly of the main cabinet carcass. The method of joinery I decided to use is but joints with wood screws. This is a “lazy” method of joinery and not the prettiest, but it’s a piece of shop furniture, so appearance does not matter to me on this build.
After the main carcass is assembled, I work on building two drawer boxes. The size of the drawer boxes are sized appropriately based on the size of my carcass.
After the drawer boxes are built, I begin installing drawer slides on both the cabinet carcass as well as the drawer boxes.
After my slides are installed, I add some 2x4s to the bottom of the cabinet carcass. This will add reinforcement for my locking swivel casters to screw into.
Once the 2x4s are complete, I install 4 heavy-duty locking swivel casters to the bottom of my cabinet carcass. This will make the cart mobile and able to be moved around my shop as needed.
Once the casters are installed, I get the cart off my bench and onto the floor, affix my planer and jointer to the top of the cart, and this project is complete!
