Default 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 oth...

I like it and already downloaded the sketchup file, thanks for that.

Ryan, I think it is fair to say that anyone who has done woodworking has made mistakes like yours. Or mis-measured, cut too small, etc. Glad to see you were able to move past it, and build something you are proud of! And now you won't make (that specific) mistake again!

No worries Ryan, I've been there. The only thing is that I thought I was the only one making mistakes.

Awesome cabinet Ryan, love Festools but can't afford it and don't have any room in my garage for them.

Holy systainer! Your amateur videography skills are amazing. Thanks for including the mistakes. I agree with anndel and think they are relieving.

Quite a while ago, someone on this board said he was going to put everything on wheels in his shop to make life easier (mostly for cleanup), and to make rearranging/reorganizing the shop fast and simple. I notice this more and more, and here you go, doing the same thing. I am paying attention to this!
Thanks for the great video. I particularly like it when a mistake happens, (just like in real life), and an explanation follows. A lot of the time, GJ feels like going to class, a lot of teaching/learning takes place here.

Turned out great. Clearly you know how to think things through and you have a vision of the finished product. The learning curve for wood will be ongoing but something you will enjoy. New skills are always useful.

Great job Ryan! Both on the video and the cabinet. For a guy who says he's not a woodworker, you're a pretty darn good woodworker! I cannot get over the clean cars setting beside a wood project. The Festool dust collection is awesome.

I Like It!

I'm on the same learning curve with half the budget. Also learning as I go.

For the drawers I bought the KHI-SLIDE Drawer Slide Jig Made it very easy and I had about 10 draw slides to do and have more in the future.

Awesome! Does the dust collection work well enough that you don't mind working directly next to your cars?

I think someone is fibbing about not working with wood. Great job on the cart and video.

I think the Festool deal has certainly helped me, but yeah it hit me hard in the pocket book for sure.

If I'm just using Festool stuff, dust isn't really concern at all... There really isn't any.

Ryan, great project, and very nicely done video.

Can you describe the camera, software and workflow that you're using? I have a new motion control time lapse rig (super simple to use) I'd like to send you to play with.

Bryce,

Check out http://sketchupforwoodworkers.com/

Ryan,

Great build. I used almost the exact same technique for the drawers when I built my shop cabinets years ago. One tool that I really like in conjunction with the Domino is the Woodpecker's Story Stick Pro It is real handy for getting dominoes placed correctly.

I'll probably be building that same cart for my MFT pretty soon, thanks for the plans.

I use a Sony A7rii with a host of 40's and 50's era Leica lenses. I love shooting still photography and I'm just getting into video really. I don't find it to be as relaxing that's for sure! For editing, I use Final Cut Pro.
