    My mancaving tends more towards multimeters with microchips. That was my
    Computer Science degree. As for woodwork, I’m only just beyond the stage of
    a beginner who trials and errors. I’ve made a fair few small things, like
    elaborate briefcase-size storage, but am only just starting on a low power
    jigsaw and puny router which I wish to mount into a cabinet. This is why
    I’m watching your guide on making drawers to maybe hybridize it with these
    guys’ ideas. /watch?v=U5SzkQTxMvA /watch?v=Gf5tRp35EEU

    @f0ckt They really need to be set into a shallow dado. I cut mine on my
    tablesaw with a dado set. My first tablesaw was a skil saw bolted to the
    bottom of a partial sheet of 1/2″ plywood. Then I just clamped a straight
    board to a whole series of parallel lines drawn on the ply. Multiple passes
    will produce a dado and if care is taken there is no reason it will not be
    accurate although a little time consuming. I rigged a switch to the saw and
    held the trigger down with rapped inner tube scraps.

    You are so right about making the things for yourself first. Thank you for
    your insight.

    btw, as I have very limited space, and will be building a small work table
    to be tucked away when not in use on wheels, the drawer idea you have for
    accessing drawers from either side is great.

    Excellent information and great advice.

    Nice…. Clear and simple to follow…

  7. Donald Kosse says:

    HI if you were to buy a cabinet saw what would it be? I am look at lagua
    tss and like it so far but I not sure what do you think

  8. AskWoodMan says:

    I have a series called The Ultimate Work Table where I made some massive
    drawers. Drawers are the only way I can stay organized in a small shop. Do
    you do some woodworking too? Do you have yourself a man cave?

    exotic woods for SHOW, plywood for a PRO, that is how a real tradesman
    works, all jigs/cabinets/shelves etc. in ply as its cheap/stable & quick to
    use/make, not ponsing around with wood that would cost a weeks wages just
    to make a tool cabinet

  10. AskWoodMan says:

    Thanks a lot for the nice comment. I always worry with this video that I am
    getting too dogmatic about what people should do. Thanks for recognizing
    that was not my intention. Thanks for watching and Merry Christmas. Allan

  11. TheLumberjackass says:

    great idea on the drawers being acessible from both sides. thats something
    even i wouldnt even have thought of. well, maybe i would have . but only
    when i had the part completely built and fully finished. typical. lol.

  12. Mike's DIY Projects & More says:

    Yup, the first project in my shop is the shop it self but thats been a
    looooong project involving many years but just keep on going to make the
    shop a show room =)

  13. William WMCQIV says:

    Very nice I really liked your slide through drawer idea, and the rolling
    tablesaw. Great video!

  14. AskWoodMan says:

    Hi Donald. I know that style saw is getting more popular. I prefer a saw
    with a lot of capacity to the right of the blade (mine is 57″) and do my
    crosscutting on a separate setup with a Festool track saw/multifunction
    table. I actually made a sliding table for my saw with precision bearings,
    but one setup is always in the way needing a changeover keeping me from
    working quickly. So I rarely use it. A standard 10″ 5/8 arbor has world of
    blades available too. Write me at gmail. Set up a talk.

  15. AskWoodMan says:

    Thanks for watching. You are right, it was a lol phrase. Cheers from the
    “Man-Lab”. I have not heard that turn of words. Very funny. Keep in touch
    and Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays. Allan

    good advice..can never have enough draws

  17. MaghoxFr says:

    great video

  18. William WMCQIV says:

    Making things for yourself is definitely the way to go! I find that working
    on projects in my small shop as a hobby, I am always making something new
    for the first time, It’s hard to get good at something if you only make it
    once. Building many drawers and shelves is a great way to practice and why
    not do them in your shop first. You made a comment that you like drawers
    mostly. I thought the same thing too however i’m slowly starting to
    appreciate the need for a well placed shelf.

  19. AskWoodMan says:

    @f0ckt Those drawers are just boxes sized to fit inside the plywood
    partitions of the plywood box. They are not attached in any way. So they
    come out if I need to set something I am making up off the ground for
    finishing or gluing access. I sanded and finished them pretty roughly, but
    they slide so nice because after the finish dries I just lube the inside of
    the case with Vaseline which is the best wooden drawer runner lube I know
    of. I am not a wax fan.

  20. AskWoodMan says:

    @JohnAjluni That saw is beyond decent. Super stout castings and the best
    fit and finish I have ever seen on a cabinet saw. Mine is a rht but I think
    they now offer it lht also. I paid $1465 15 years ago. I don’t know how
    much they cost today but for a Canadian built Model 350 I would not be
    surprised if it was twice that. Just google General woodworking machines
    Canada.

  21. AskWoodMan says:

    That is a great question. The sides of the drawers act as the runners. When
    the drawer is wider than it is deep (as into the case) , drawers tend to
    not work as well as drawers where the relation is reversed. So a long
    narrow drawer can be overloaded with tools or wood and never bind because
    it has so much guideway in the long sides that keep it aligned in the case.
    You will notice in chests of drawers that are often very wide compared to
    their depth, they always require two hands to open them.

    I LOL’d at “Financial exposure”. You mean money, mate. I too am not
    financially exposed. I know how that feels. Excellent video by the way. And
    great man-lab.

  23. signupsigma says:

    I need to make a table that can withstand at least 62 pounds. Please
    advise. Thanks. I like the wood pocket techniques, but I also do like to
    see the screws here and there.

  24. darkness1127 says:

    Great vid! Are there any limitations to the sizing of drawers using this
    method you have mentioned in your experience? Too wide vs too tall. I am
    looking to make some 3″shallow drawers for paper stock and scraps about 30″
    wide…just wondering if that is pushing it and need to go the runner rout.
    Thanks!
