« Part 11: Outfeed table and bench vise Part 12 of Evolution of a Shop series Part 13: Tool board over workbench »

I wanted to take advantage of the space under my table saw’s right side to create a place to keep blades, inserts, push sticks, etc. This is by no means a new idea, but thought it worthwhile to post. I built the entire cabinet out of 3/4” birch ply from Lowe’s using pockethole screws and glue. Drawer slides are full extension. The drawer fronts are wrapped in cherry. Finish is 2 coats of a BLO and mineral spirits mix. Now I’ve got all my table saw stuff right at my fingertips.

Here’s the cabinet under my saw wing:

Before drawer fronts:

I made a holder for my Incra miter gauge on one side and my stock miter gauge on the other:

In the drawers I keep push sticks and jigs, blades, throat plate inserts, dado stack, and some other miscellaneous stuff.

Thanks for looking.

Greetings again, Cory,

Once again you’ve come through on the projects, and this one is as necessary as a pocket on a shirt.. Stellar job on the build, as usual….. I like it…..It’s funny that you posted this…..I’m doing the exact same thing to my saw….. I’ve had one drawer under it forever, and it’s full of crap, so on to bigger and better things, right? I like a blog or project that has lots of pictures and shows how it’s built and at different angles, etc., and buddy you come through…... Thanks for posting…..Keep up the good work….

Very good. Everything that you do to organize a shop will always be a time saver and will pay back many dividends. Great work!

Nice job! I took the easy route and bought a set of drawers from Ikea. I was in a hurry though. mary would approve, she’s my shop decorator. It’s on casters!
