When I sold my old Craftsman saw#, I lost the really great base with storage and drawers.

I really have missed not having my saw blades and dado set at my right hand. I also have always want a easier way to access my tools that I use on the saw all the time, without having to have them sit on top of the saw.

So I came up with this cabinet design. The drawer fronts are jatoba ( Brazilian Cherry ) I got this free a friend at the stair manufacturing company.

The design includes a pull out tray on the top of the cabinet. This was a lot of extra trim work, but I like the way it turned out.

The rest of the construction is 3/4” HD Sandeply. It is finished with 1 coat of shellac to prep the jatoba and then multiple coats of poly.

Again it was a learning experience.

The biggest failure in the design is my grippers will not fit on the pull out shelf.

If I had it to do again, I would make it 3 inches shorter and only have 4 drawers dropping 2 of the narrow ones.

Here is a LINK to the entire build album.#

This cabinet looks great. This is going to be one of my next projects, I just picked up a used Delta Unisaw. I’ve been using a Jet contractors saw for the past 10 years. If there is anything else you would’ve changed let me know.

Thank you

Very functional the top tool tray reminds me of my router table set up which is the best part of the storage unit, extremely handy. The entire set-up looks very inviting, you’ll have to be pleased to have such a sweet saw. Stay safe and enjoy and thanks for sharing…Blackcherry

Great idea and I really like the pull out shelf.
One problem I have (and you appear to have also) is the access to the saw cabinet is on the right side so the storage cabinet would have to be movable to allow access to the inside of the saw cabinet.
I see the new Delta saw has the access on the left side.

I think that big slide-out tray is a brilliant addition! My project’s jigs, sketches, and sub-assemblies seem to collect on every horizontal surface in the shop…especially to the right of my saw’s fence, so I’m constantly moving them around or looking for something. This – and a little organizational skill on my part – might be just the ticket!
