Always wanted to get all my drill bits and drilling accessories in one spot and take advantage of the wasted space below the table. Cabinet is made with 3/4” plywood I had laying around and drawers are made out of 1/2” plywood.
Decided to get fancy on the drawer pulls and used some black walnut I had sitting in the burn pile. The cabinet is registered on the base with dowels that allow me to remove it if I ever need a larger drilling capacity. Had a fun time building it and got to practice cutting rabbets on the table saw for the drawers.

Isn’t it just wonderful when you’re able to create a whole storage system of your own with your own 2 hands. Talk about getting some use out of all that tinkering in the workshop eh?
