I call it the “deluxe” sanding station because my wife believes that it is nicer than our kitchen cabinets (uh, oh….. I can feel another project coming on!!!). I made the doors from poplar using one of Freud’s raised panel router bit sets (very good). The base, sides, back and shelf are all birch plywood, and the top is phenolic plywood which I purchased on sale from Rockler’s (nice and easy to clean). All the wood was stained and finished with Arm-R-Seal topcoat. The frame is one of Rockler’s modular stands, which is very sturdy. As you can see space in my garage is at something of a premium so every tool I have is on a mobile base.

P.S. Actually I purchased the router bit set so I could rebuild the kitchen and this was a test so I could gain some experience. I’m just not telling the wife yet.

Test of new router bit, bought for alternate purpose, equals shop upgrade; I like it!
Great justification for new tooling.
