This is a dolly I made at TechShop Detroit and then completed at home: TechShop for the Sliding Arm (chop) Saw and the Drill Press. I use the dolly under my office lateral file to raise its height, route cords out of the way and to be able to move it around albeit carefully. Caution: Lateral files can get heavy and if you top load them (i.e. heavy stuff on top) they will be inherently unstable and this dolly will only make that more dangerous - use common sense. For those of you who have worked with furniture dollies in the past you will notice that mine is "upside down" - I wanted the front edge to be lengthwise up at the bottom of the cabinet (esthetics).
NOTE: Furniture Grade in this case meaning a dolly that does not have to make a living at working.
The skills that this makes use of is:
- Dimensional layout
- Use of power tools and some hand tools
- Precision assembly
