I've put a ton more time into the twin cabinet. First of all, this one has shelves..and every single mistake that could be made...I've made.
Thought I'd be sooo smart putting my shelves together, before they went into the cabinet. The kreg screws didn't want to cooperate. I was able to get the ends in, but the middle holes were a different story. The top shelf is 30.5....a little less, needed to pull it all together for the rolling shelf to work seamlessly. There is a divider thats 15 inches high, and mid shelf is 18.5. The space in between the 2 shelves 7 inches, not quite enough for my Kreg to fit in there. So I did end up putting in about 20 screws for 2...made the horrible mistake of NOT MEASURING and just screwing away on the outside. Lesson learned, and wasted aobut 1/2 of my wood putty in the process.
Shelves in...somehow it's square. The little rectangle in the back? Can you guess?
Power Strip!!! I'm gonna have all the bells and whistles. Puck light's going in too.
looking down on it, pull out shelf...Sewing machine cubby...
Tada!!! the little basket is the icing on the cake! Just needs doors, trim, other half of the table can finally go on, and we'll be cooking with gas, can't wait to finish this one. Come hell or high water.. gonna be down by tommorrow.
Getting cutting mat on was a beast. Self healing board, very hard to make a hole in it. Glue kept slipping, ended up stapling and then nailing the staples in for a tight fit. This table is the scariest for me. I don't know if I've said it before, but I'll quote myself...."I HATE HINGES!!!!"
