Sorry for not posting again for awhile and thanks to all for all you that have reached out….appreciate it!

Forgot to grab the photos of the old way this was organized, but for sure this is better….

The goal was to get all the drill press / bit stuff somewhat organized and the timing of this seemed to work out. A coworker had a bunch of Poplar tongue and groove cutoffs (pic 2) and I also had a bunch of free to me Oak narrow strips (8-10’ long) that had no apparent future….....(pic below).

These worked out to be the slide-out shelves.

The things I did buy for this build was the drill bit organizer:

And cheesy 9” drawer slides…not going to post a link for those, they work, but not super sturdy.

A shout out to my brother for building the steel back board to the right of cabinet. I initially put it in my office and later thought it would be great in the shop! So many things you can do magnets. I have a bunch of my drill driver bits on there and they stay put being mounted horizontally.

More Photos:

From a distance…this is the new addition (RED BORDER):

Thanks for looking.

That is very impressive. And putting your drill press behind the miter saw fence! Wow. Never thought of that.
TWO drill presses? I thought I used mine a lot… you must have them dedicated for processes?

One thing about Jeff… he always does things top shelf.
