I wanted to update the table my planer sat on so I decided to make a cabinet that would provide a more stable support and give me some additional storage. The carcase is maple veneered plywood with edge trim of solid maple. Drawer fronts and door construction is solid maple. I used Kreg pocket hole joinery for the carcase construction. The drawers were assembled with an Infinity Drawer Lock router bit. The doors are mortis and tenon. The cabinet serves it’s purpose well and the storage area hides blades and jigs for several other machines. Thanks for looking!

It is a fine piece of furniture. The lines are elegant, the drawers and cabinet are functional, and the footprint is a good example of parsimony. Excellent project and right at home in your beautiful shop.

Great cabinet! Can never have enough storage or enough clamps. And I like the hardwood floors in your shop too!
