Made a few improvements to my “retirement” shop recently. The first pic shows a drill press cabinet with drill press table. A solid oak drafting table that I got at a second hand store can also be seen in this photo. The drill press table still needs some T-track. The second and third photo’s show a lathe tool caddy. The fourth is called a multi-function tool cabinet. Different tools are bolted to a piece of 3/4 in. mdf which is secured to the top of the table. When you need another tool, you remove the first, put it into the storage cabinet (shown in the fifth photo) and then secure the next tool to the table top. The multi-function cabinet has my new 8 in. grinder on it with a Wolverine grinding jig. The storage cabinet has my new Cutech planer and Cutech jointer. The drill press table was made out of 3/4 in. mdf, the multi-function tool cabinet and the storage cabinet were made out of 3/4 in. melamine particle board with 1/4 in. oak trim. The lathe tool caddy was made out of scrap plywood and a piece of 3 in. pvc pipe. Plans for the cabinets all came from “Woodshop Workstations” by Danny Proulx. Thanks for looking.
