Just fiinish a drill press cabinet for the shop. It was inspired by one the Jeremy Grenier had posted. The cabinet top is 15 3/4” x 31” and the unit stands 29 3/4” with casters. There are four drawer in the cabinet 2 – 4 1/2”, 1- are 5” and the bottom one is 6 1/2”. The case was made using 2” x 3” spruce. I use 3/4” scrap pine for the side and back. The casters are 4 3/4” high, which clears my Drill press base. I trimed the top and front with scrap 3/4”cherry I had. The top was a scrap piece I had front and old desk I recycled.

That’s a nice addition to any shop. The cherry and pine really look sharp and compliment each very well. That is very attractive cabinet and it fills the void under the drill press very neatly. Rand

Stellar job on the d.p. table. As you know, you can never have enough storage, especially where tools like, table saws, etc. need it…and it dresses up the area under the d.p. I like the choice of woods you combined to build it….great job, and very nice looking….thanks for posting….

You have raised the class of storage in your workshop. My tools would beg to be in such a nice cabinet.

Real nice. Now why didn’t I think of that? You have some nice fixtures in your shop. I for one really appreciate that.
