« Part 1: Mobile base Part 2 of Table Saw Cabinet for Craftsman 113 series Part 3: Round over »

Today I just cut the cheap plywood and the oak plywood down to the 26.5 depth dimensions. Which, total side note, but of the two oak plywood sheets I have, one is significantly heavier than the other.
So much so, I checked to see if somehow I had a piece of 1/2” and a piece of 3/4. Nope, both 3/4, but I swear one is about 20-30% heavier for some reason… Anyway, tomorrow I’ll start cutting the boards to their final height. For the past few days I’ve mostly been pouring over my plan, double, triple, quadruple checking everything. The final plan is to have 37” tall bench with 3 main compartments. To the left, a “side slide drawer” for blades, inserts, arbor wrench, etc. The middle compartment, “TS/Dado Drawer” where the table saw will sit, and I plan on building a special “dado drawer”. The dado drawer is going to store all my dado blades evenly spaced at a 45 degree angle, and be easily pulled out so I can remove it and easily pull my dado blades out individually, rather than dealing with sorting through the stack of individual blades each time. Plus it’ll keep them safe from clinking around and potentially chipping a blade tooth. The final compartment with be two large drawers on the right side. These will be about 13 inches tall, 27 or so wide, and about 24 inches deep. My plan for these is to section them off into separate compartments. One thing I’ve observed in my woodworking, and in the many YouTube creators I have watched is, shops evolve. So having adjustable spaces is going to allow for that evolution much better than if I split those drawers into a set of 4 or more drawers. For anyone interested, here are my “plans” so far. As you can tell, I’m probably the only person who could look at these and know what they mean at this point, but I thought it would be cool to share. Obviously my measurements have changed throughout my process.
