Rolling cabinet with laptop tray
« on: January 22, 2018, 05:52 PM »
All solid cherry cabinet, dominos for joinery, lacquer finish. I put some UHMW tape anywhere the tray contacts the wood when sliding and it's very smooth.  Built for my aunt and uncle's vacation home so they can keep it in the hallway and roll it into the family room area to use a laptop on the pullout tray thing to use at the couch. The big casters looked a little goofy to me at first but they're growing on me as it sits in my living room waiting for them to get back from vacation. They picked the casters out though and I just built it. Got to try out my new of1010 for the first time on this project using the flush trim v bit and it's nice having a router with dust collection for edge routing.

I like it.  WRT the wheels, I think it's more important that it serve the function for which it was designed rather than underkilling the wheels and then having trouble moving it.  It'll look nicer the older it gets as well.

The wheels definitely serve their function, I brought it in my house with tile floors that look like wood so there's tons of grout lines and it just glides over them which is good because they have the same type of floors. The cherry is very light now so in a few months it'll start darkening nicely but luckily my uncle understands that and loves the naturally aged cherry look. Most clients don't go for that (or even know that cherry doesn't look like an espresso stained cabinet door) so if its an aged cherry look they want I usually just tell them they want maple and show them a sample of dyed maple lol.
