My wife got me a new 10” wet grinder for christmas(don’t let the cover fool you it’s a grizzly haha) so I decided to make a new place to have both grinders set up and keep accessories stored. I made the top drawer shallow to put water stones (on my wish list still. Then made the second drawer deep enough 4 1/16” to store the tormec accessories I got to help improve my lathe chisel sharpening.

Everything but the casters was scrap I had laying around the top. Side, back and bottom were cabinet side panels left on a job site, top was oak cut offs from building my daughters nursery furniture. As for the handles and slides I was lucky enough to have been given a box full of 18” and 21” ball bearing slides (~30 pairs) and 10 drawer pulls that my cabinet supplier was going to throw away because they had to many laying around.. I added some 1” oak quarter round on the edges that I saved when we put new trim and doors in my in laws house.

Nothing overly fancy but gets the job done
