Built a new cabinet to replace a 2×4 stand built 25 years ago. With all the new storage space I decided to build some trays to sort out all the drill bits so I could find the right size bit I need without wasting time or going and buying the same size bit again. The one down side is now due to reorganization, I don’t remember where everything is now. I still can not find all my jigsaw blades (I’m losing my mind!).

Nice work, being organized makes the work flow. As for forgetting where things are. Try some tape with marker telling you what is where. In a few months you will remember and can take it off, or keep it.

I like the bit storage drawer, Ocean. It has a little wiggle room for organization. When you find your jigsaw blades, it will be like Christmas (I know. I just found some scrollsaw blades I bought several years ago)!

Great Cabinet! I need to build one like this for my drill press. Can you please share some dimensions? Did you add some weight to the bottom to counter the heavy drill press? I have read posts on wood working forums that cabinets like these tend to topple over while moving because of top heavy drill press. Did you notice such tendency with yours?

Have your say...
