The Systainer Cart

So this video was pretty painful to make… This is the first time I’ve ever really worked with wood on this scale, plus I have very little experience making videos. So, I was trying to learn two skills at once that kind of intertwined with each other while I was learning them.

My wife has been wanting some built-in cabinets in our dining room and a couple of months ago, we started fielding quotes. They were outrageous… Like, REALLY outrageous. So outrageous, that I began to ponder the idea of building them myself. The only problem (besides my complete lack of knowledge and experience working with wood) was that my shop simply wasn’t outfitted to work with wood.
