face, support strips (J) are glued and screwed to the bottom rails. Then install a pair of locking swivel casters in front and fixed casters in back, see Fig. 3b.
levelers. Even with locking casters, I was still concerned the cabinet might "creep" when the saw is running. So I installed lev-elers to raise the cabinet off the casters when the saw is in use, see margin on page 18.
DUST BIN & DRAWER
Now you can build the dust bin and drawer to fit their openings.
The length of the bin and drawer is the same (22"), see Fig. 4. And so is the width (20"). This allows for guides for the bin and drawer slides. But their height is different. To allow for false fronts (added later), they're Vfe" shorter than their openings (5" and l1/^).
To build the bin and drawer, start by cutting the sides (K and L) to size, see Fig. 4. Then rabbet the ends of each piece to accept front/back pieces (M and N). After cutting a groove in each piece for bottom pieces (0 and P), assemble them with glue and screws.
slides. To provide easy access to the drawer, full-extension slides are installed on the storage drawer. But I took a different approach with the bin.
guides. To eliminate the hassle of "releasing" a slide to pull out the dust bin, I made two guides (Q), see Figs. 5 and 5a. These are strips of MDF that are notched to fit around the stiles. To help guide the bin into the opening, the front ends are tapered.
false fronts. With the guides glued in place, I installed the bin and drawer and added the false fronts (R and S). They're cut to allow Vie" gap all the way around and attached with screws, see Fig. 4b.
Finally, after installing pulls, I screwed in stops (T) to keep the bin and drawer flush with the front of the cabinet, see Fig. 5a.
