Can check this off the shop “to do list”. I find it hard to say “no” when wood is offered. this was from 5/8 spalted hickory. Drawer slides were cut down from recycled cabinet parts. Finished with BLO, and paste wax. For convenience if needed, the drawers/trays can be moved to the workbench. Photo color is off due to fluorescent lighting. Not a furniture piece, just shop storage organizer.

Nice looking cabinet! Isn’t it great to be able to store your drilling supplies right next to the drill press!

Thanks for sharing.

Yes Jeff, a good looking cabinet and more storage than you would imagine.
btw – do I see an Incra TS-LS positioner on your table saw ?

Dick: Yes, the Incra system is on the saw, and it is precise. I like it.

A great plan as you can move it out of the way for the odd time you need to drill something different and taller.
