Dear Lee Valley,

  Rolling Cabinet
Last November, I purchased the Veritas® Rolling Cabinet Plan. I recently finished building the cabinet and it was a great success. I thought you might like to see the result, so I'm sending a couple of photos of the finished product. I took some of the optional suggestions and have a beautiful cabinet. Here are the changes I made:

  1. Changed the cabinet size an inch or two in each dimension to fit my available space. I also adjusted the drawer sizes accordingly.

  2. Used walnut for the framing members and furniture-grade Baltic birch plywood for the panels. The contrast is stunning.

  3. Used recessed drawer handles.

  4. Added a leather strap handle for pulling the cart.

  5. Added a five-drawer gang lock.

  6. Turned the shelf pull-out knob from maple and the leather strap buttons from walnut.

  7. Used one set of fixed and one set of swivel/locking casters.

  8. Used five pairs of over-extension, 100-lb drawer slides.

  9. I finished the cart with five coats of water-based polyurethane.
