I have completed the doors, drawers and pull-out trays of my miter saw station. The drawers are pretty basic. They are ¾ inch solid maple fronts, ½ inch Baltic birch sides and back and ¼ inch bottom. Either laziness or the fact that this is for a workshop, led me to use a locking rabbet joint for the drawer fronts versus dovetails.
I did the same for the pull-out trays. All the drawers and trays ride on full-extension drawer slides. For the doors, I went with solid maple rails and stiles and a Baltic Birch ¼ inch panel. I used mortise and tenon joinery for the frames and made these doors the full inset type.
I haven’t fully decided what will go where in the cabinets and drawers but as you can see in one photo, my oscillating spindle sander fits nicely in a tray.
I have lots of tools that I keep in their original case (jig saw, brad nailer, Kreg pocket hole kit and my Dremel tool for example). I can get them off the shop floor and into a tray or two. Speaking of trays, I went with four for now but depending on what I store, I could add additional trays within the cabinets.
This pretty much completes this project. As seen in the photos, I have purchased a 36” flexible hose (from Rockler) that I will use with my DC system to pick up dust at the rear of the cut. I will use a shop vac with fittings in place of the bag that comes with the saw. I suspect that will catch the majority of the dust but, as we all know, miter saws are notorious for throwing dust. Thanks for checking in on me.
