I am a Shopsmith Owner since 1996 and started with my basement 11 by 20 shop. Now in Shop #5 I am condensing again and have looked at the plans from Hands On for the Under the Shopsmith cabinet. I have the lift assist on the right end and that changes some details also the new 3 inch wheels so more foot space needed on the left side. So my box here is 30 wide, 18 deep and 18 high. This left about an inch below the case. Right now the bottom shelf has lathe tool rests, tenon jig, miter gauge, and 8 table inserts on the left. The top shelf a box for small parts, a wood tray for chuck and other parts, push blocks. On top T wrench , 2 push sticks and a sanding disk upside down. the fence is 27 inches well supported. In the milk crate are 4 blades, molding head, stacked dado blade and molding head and another velcro sanding disk. I used chains since the Lift assist would be blocked with the wood frame of the original plans and I fit the case under the down position. Later if this is good I will consider doors or not. The lathe rack is 2 sides like candy canes and dowels great when turning, I may store it on the side of this box. Gathering all my parts I must have 5 allen wrenches. Plus I have 2 stands for the band saw, belt sander, jointer, and strip sander. My PC planer on top of one. Check in my projects for an outfeed table and a router table if you have some ideas. In my blog …Help my new shop… Shipwright replied to it with….garage to workshop in 2 and half minutes. He sets up a Shopsmith and shop on utube..worth anyone viewing. Thanks to Paul.

That will get the job done for sure!!!

I hate to say it but under my SS is the box my Dewalt saw came in and it holds all the SS parts I don’t use, but the box is low enough so I use it to hold my saw jigs for the saw when not in use.
Maybe one day I’ll slow down on the model making and treat my saws to a new shelf system.
