Unfinished drawers and top.







Glued down heavy vinyl to top/deck install some flush wood handles

very nice, i was thinking of doing something very similar, but i don't konw anything about wood
Not to beat on you specifically, but it is great to hear someone say that. I am not sure I am as talented as Undertow but I could come up with something fairly comparable. Nice to see something I can do after watching all the welding and fabricating going on around here that I don't have the first clue on. The shoe on the other foot is refreshing, hoo-ray for the wood guys!

Great job! I was impressed with your quality. What did you use for the stops or catches on the drawers to keep them from banging in and out? I can see them but can't quite tell what they are.

Lots of catches/latches out there, found some brass sleves and some 1/4"x 2"
pins that fit into them perfectly. Wanted to keep in simple a clean.







Thanks for the compliments folks.

Very nice! I am too embarrassed to post pics of mine :eek:, although for using what I had and the tools I had it came out pretty nice. But not as nice as yours!

yes it is a cousin to your box Cory, your pic you posted several month ago is what inspired the project, thanks!!

Timbo,
I had the plywood in my shed, but if you were to buy, about
$60.00
Hardware,
$25.00
Vinyl and paint,
$15.00
I would estimate the unit is about 35# empty, I think you could cut about 20% of the weight off if it was built entirely of 1/2' ply.
