How To Make Rolling Cabinet for Extra Storage

How To Make Rolling Cabinet for Extra Storage: We might be bragging, but we think the PM Rolling Cabinet is as versatile as furniture gets. It’s a bookcase, printer kiosk, DVD storage rack, or kitchen workstation. It’s the storage you want, when and where you need it. Roll it from place to place, set up shop, and move it again as needed. We made the cart shelves wider and deeper to accommodate the baskets you see popping up in furniture catalogs and showrooms. Don’t like baskets? No problem—it works without them.

Simplicity is a virtue, and this project is designed with that kind of virtue in mind. It is made up of only 12 wooden parts and most of them are made of the same material i.e. red oak plywood. You don’t need more than a handful of tools: a circular saw, a router, a pocket screw jig, and a drill/driver. You probably already have these. All that’s left is a free weekend. Honestly, you won’t even need all that time to knock out this cabinet.

Start by ripping and crosscutting the shelves, sides, bottom, and top panels from the red oak plywood in a circular saw with a 40-tooth thin kerf blade. Guide the saw with a straight piece of wood clamped into the panel, or use a clamping fence [1].

Clamp a straight piece of scrap to the edge of the panel to give the router a wider base to ride on. Cut a rabbet along the back edge of each side panel using a router and ball-bearing rabbet bit [2].

By tearing and tearing the edges, iron on the veneer tape along their front edges [3]. Allow the veneer to overhang the ends, and trim it to length using heavy-duty scissors or pieces of sheet metal. The heat-activated glue on this garment is very strong, but you still need to make sure the tape is attached properly. To do this, burn the tape using a block of wood.

Finally, shave the veneer to width using a file. Tip the file at a shallow 5- to 10-degree angle, and push it so that its edge (not its face) cuts the excess veneer [4]. Veneer the shelf and bottom of the case in the same manner.

Build up the thickness of the top panel by gluing and nailing pine blocks along its edges. Cut the pine pieces and place them carefully so that the top falls neatly over the sides of the case. Then attach them using glue and 3D finishing nails [5]. Apply 2-inch-wide red oak veneer tape to the ends first, and then tape the front edge. Iron the tape, burn it and trim it just like you handled the sides.

We used a Craig jig to drill pocket screw holes in the bottom and bottom panels of each shelf [6]. Simply clamp the parts into the jig and drill the holes.

Next, drive coarse-threaded pocket screws through these sections and around the sides of the case. Start by attaching the bottom of the case [7], and then move to the shelf. Next, cross-cut the cleats to fit between the sides, and attach the cleats by driving screws into the sides of the case. There is no need to hide these screws because the top will cover them.

Rip and cut the plywood to fit the space between the rabbits and to match the length of the case. Apply a coat of satin polyurethane to the back of the plywood. Make small pencil marks on both sides of the case to indicate the center, bottom, and cleats of each shelf. Place the back in the case, and draw lines on the back to indicate these centers. Nail along these lines to connect the back to the sides, bottom, and cleat.

Finally, lightly hand-sand all parts with 120-grit abrasive paper, clean off dust, and apply a coat of satin polyurethane to the inside and outside of the shelves and side panels. When the coating is dry, lightly sand the parts with 220 grit sandpaper. Wipe off the sanding dust and apply another coat. Apply a coat of ebony stain on top.

When the stain is dry, apply two coats of polyurethane over the top, the same method you used on the case. When the top is complete, drop it onto the cleats and drive the screws through the cleats upwards [8].

We used rugged, solid aluminum casters on this project. Pull the flange toward the bottom of the case [9]. Now, you’re ready to roll.

What is a rolling cabinet?

A popular feature in new and remodeled kitchens is the addition of rolling cabinet shelves. These are shelves that are suspended by a rolling mechanism that allows them to be rolled out partway, giving the person easier access to items stored in the back than with traditional, fixed cabinet shelves.

What are revolving cabinets?

The Revolving cabinet is a chest of drawers with 20 drawers in red polish acrylic material, revolving around vertical metal support. The base structure and vertical support are metal with a black, matte epoxy powder coat. The drawers and base cover are red polished acrylic plastic material.
