This can be a enjoyable easy challenge with huge impression! I really like the combo of wooden and steel.

Oh did I point out it solely took 2 hours from begin to end, one board, one stick of “angle aluminum” and a few screws!

Effectively, it truly goes end first on this one!  Step one was to chop down my 2 x 12 into 3 items at 31 1/2” (so I might get three cabinets out of 1 8 foot lengthy board). I gave them sanding and stained them.

I used Carrington by RustOleum – it is bought a slight reddish tint, very fairly!

Now for the aluminum angle.  Yow will discover it at most any ironmongery shop, and it is fairly cheap –

Aluminum angle is available in precut sizes, however mine have been 48″ in size, so I made a decision to chop them in half.  

One of the best ways I’ve discovered to chop aluminum angle is with a jigsaw with a steel blade.

Simply clamp the aluminum angle down,

And it cuts like butter!

Even simpler than reducing wooden!

Then it was time add the aluminum angle to the boards.

 I set my 3 boards on their facet on a pair sawhorses, set the primary aluminum piece flush with the highest and backside board. 

Then I predrilled by way of simply the aluminum the place I needed to position my self tapping screws, 

One on either side of the angle piece. 

I did the highest board first after which the underside.  I measured and marked the center of the angle piece and set the middle of the center 2 x 12 board and did the identical, predrilled and sunk my self tapping screws.

I did the identical for all 4 sides. Virtually accomplished.

Then I simply wanted so as to add these candy casters! I used 1 1/4” self tapping screws right here.

I flipped it up and stood again to admire. 

AMAZING! It is actually is wonderful what 2 hours and few supplies could make! 

Can I Construct This Greater?

Sure!  You may construct this challenge in numerous sizes.  Take a look at the brag posts for some inspiration.  However do bear in mind a 2×12 can span about 4 ft earlier than it begins to sag.  And likewise as you go taller, there is perhaps some wobble – take into account including flat steel bar to the again to create construction as accomplished right here:
