I finished up #2 and it was smooth sailing this time now that I knew what to look out for. I ran through all the same domino operations at once for the sides and top/bottom to reduce error, clamped the stretchers up flush before driving pocket screws. It went together lickity split compared to the first and it's dead on square measured corner to corner.

I want to attach a 1/4" melamine back panel to each to hide the exposed particle board and add some rigidity. I can't seem to find any locally at least from the box stores. Any tips?

Kreg makes white pocket hole plugs so that may be one option.

I meant to the back of each carcass. The pocket holes will be hidden by the systainers

Kreg makes a plug cutter so you can make your own matching plugs from scrap of the same material.

Welp thanks (or no thanks?) to eBay and their sales they keep running. .the shop got a little more organized. Here's the current state:

The ports received 1/8" tempered hardboard backs and are attached to studs for stability. Casters just didn't work out even with threaded inserts designed for the task. The left one accommodates (1) Sys4, (3) Sys2, and (1) Sys1. Right is (1) Sys4, (1) Sys2, (2) Sys1, and a drawer on top that's currently holding all my dog accessories, but it will fit a Sys2 and possibly a Sys3.


Here you can see my first failed attempted at the sysport using China-ply, now repurposed as a shelf, and pegboard that I hung. The worktable is a Multifunctionslab I built using the pegboard jig a while back that a member here sells to create the grid. The bottom shelf was made later using the LR32 and those holes are on 96mm centers and perfectly square. Should I ever need to bang out another top I'll use it and a flush trim bit:


And finally the triple MFT setup. I'm going to use the second fence for precise offcuts. Just waiting on some Starrett tape from Amazon:
