Since I wanted the drawer front to have a raised panel look as well, I was contemplating how to work that out because my panel raiser has a back cutter. I could have undone the bolt and took off the back cutter, but I didn't want to take the bit apart. I have a tenoning jig built already, but it's not quite the right shape for most door panels. Since I did have some extra plywood, I built myself a panel raising jig. It took me all of about 20 minutes and now I have something I can use for more types of finish trim on my cabinets.

After doing some sanding, I got it attached to the drawer box. I had to adjust my slides since I wasn't exactly thinking straight when I put them in originally. I thought I would have to rabbet the back of the drawer front, but I realized that I didn't need to do that. Because of that I had to move my slides so that the drawer box was flush to the front of the face frame. Setting the front was no problem, and I got it screwed to the box.
|Looks like it all fits and works out okay. Better build the top now.|
The nice thing about this cart is that it gives me more storage space. I put my air stapler and pin nailer in the drawer and I see that I have tons of room for the nails and screws I usually use. This way I can keep all my assembly tools nearer to my assembly area (currently my outfeed table).

I have to get these shop projects done, then clean up the garage so I have more space. I want to build a bookcase and there's no way I'm going to be able to make it in the garage right now. I don't have enough free floor space for that.
As always, there are tons of things to do, but it never seems like there's enough time to do all of it.
