Rolling bench top drill press cabinet

Finished this today, finally. Haven't even chucked a bit into the DP yet...but at least I have a nice place to put it! In case any of you recognize me from my earlier post about "Craftsman Red", I had to have HD color match it. It came out pretty well, I think. Now for a drill press table...

EDIT: NEW PICTURES!

Looks like the paint matched up good. Great job.

very nice. How is it for stability? does it want to tip, or run away?

Looks great, and I like the matching casters.

It's very stable. It's all 3/4 MDF, and the top and bottom are double thick. It has to weigh at least 50 lbs, empty. Also, the two front casters are swivel/ double locking, so when they are locked it's not going anywhere. A little preliminary testing showed that with all four casters unlocked, even if I push HARD on the top of the DP, the cabinet will move before it wants to tip.

Could you re-up the pictures? They're not showing right now.

Yeah, what Derek said. I don't get the infamous little red "x", but I don't get to see pictures either.
