Looks really good. Should make for a more enjoyable time in your workshop.
Take the time to modify this and make pull out drawers on the bottom. Doors suck….....unless you like standing on your head to find things in the back of the cabinet.

Looks great! This is my next project for the shop. Did you follow any plans for the cabinet build? I’ve been looking at a plan in Wood Magazine I might follow as it’s pretty basic. Like Mike in Waukesha (wait a minute, I thought I was Mike in Waukesha…LOL) said, I plan to put in pull-out shelves in mine. Nice looking build.

I didn’t follow any plans. I just looked at a bunch of them and took the things I liked and turned it into one lol. Im happy with it. Just got a new Miter Saw today so I have to modify where the saw. I need to make some angle pieces for behind the saw to funnel the dust down. Sometimes it collects in the corners.

Nicely done. Lots of useful storage as well.

That’s a beauty. I like the hidden sliding drawers. I may have to convert mine. It’s a pita to find stuff in the back. Nice work!

I like the down draft cabinet idea. Plenty of good ideas to “borrow”. My miter saw station is in sad need of this kind of upgrade. I could use the under cabinet storage and the counter top space.

I’m curious what the white cord running into the cabinet is for.

- EarlS

My first thought was dust collection switch but then why does it run into the cabinet? Then I realized his cabinet is lighted so my bet is the white wire controls the led light inside the miter box area

Wow, when I first glanced at the small picture, I thought it was a kitchen unit. Fit for a king for sure.
