DRILL PRESS CART: ALL FINISHED

After a week of fleeting moments in the shop I have finally finished the drill press cart and I have to say that it  looks awesome and even more importantly that that it makes more room and floor space available in that ugly corner of my shop.

SHOPPING LIST

  • Full sheet of 3/4" birch plywood (not baltic birch)
  • A half sheet of 1/4" plywood
  • I purchased some ash hardwood to use for the table top edge banding and I also used the leftovers to make my own drawer pulls that I am very happy about.
  • 3" casters @4
  • 22" full extension drawer slides @5
  • Finished it in polycrylic.

JOINERY

Since this was a shop project I didn't use any fancy joinery for the case I simply used pocket holes and 1-1/4" pocket hole screws to join the case parts together along with glue.

FEATURES

  • 5 full extension drawers which gives me ton of stroage
  • 34" x 22" x 16" 
  • The whole cart is portable which in my opinion is a must in any wood-shop.
  • I made my own drawer pulls out of ash which was a very fun project.

If you would like to make this cart , I have plans available in my shop.

 Here is a frontal picture, I have to say that the pulls look great.

 Lots of storage

Lots of storage

 I need to finalise where everything will be stored, but since I have 5 drawers I can put each type of drill bit in its own drawer.

 This is what I am moving away from, it worked well for a time but the drill press cart keeps everything I need around the drill press and not a random drawer on the other side of the shop.
