Another add on the the table saw sled cabinet. During the original build I mentioned that I wanted to add a drawer to the cabinet. Well I did. It turned out great a it is a large drawer. The only issue I have now, what to put in it? I thought maybe my camera equipment, cordless tool maybe hardware. This will have to be another day.
Side note: For the next few weeks anyone who follows me on Patreon will get first look at any video produced.
An overall simple drawer to build four sides and a bottom. No fancy joint needed. Just being a shop drawer I went with glue, brad nails and screws. I glued the joints shot a brad nail to hold the side then secured them with screws.
Cut a board that fits into the dado’s that was already in the cabinet. These dado was added when the cabinet was built. Drilled a pilot hole one on each side. Then drove in a screw on each side.
Cut two sides, front and back. Ripped them to width, then used the cross cut sled and cut to length.
I played with some stop motion on this process take a look. This shows how I put it together.
After getting the frame put together I placed it on top of the plywood and traced the inside.
Cut the bottom out inserted it on the inside. I left about a 16th gap from the bottom of the frame. I pinned it in place and them drove in screws.
Added the drawer front. Placed screws from the inside.
I didn’t want to go get a drawer pull. I found a scrap piece of cherry and a short piece of t-track. I cut a rabbit in the cherry. Then screwed the t-track into the rabbit. Cross cut the assembly in half to make two drawer pulls. Predrilled the hole and mounted the handle in the middle.
