no previous part Part 1 of Mitre Saw Station series Part 2: The Drawers »

I finally started my dedicated mitre saw station and as you can see it’s basically going to be
2 36” wide cabinets with drawers and 2 cabinet doors to each unit .. In the middle I’m going to put a shelf and frame to support the mitre saw and also make it flush to the top of the cabinets so I cut my 8’ lumber .

The cabinets are made out of furniture grade poplar and its dimensions are 36” wide 40” tall and 24” deep..

I planing using the cabinets for workbench tools like my drill press and bandsaw ( which I have to get).

I put poplar face frames on the cabinet because I like the looking it.

The basic joinery of the carcass is a dado on the back to hold 1/4” ply backing.

Pocket hole joinery to hold the stretchers and kick plate base.. I also places pocket holes in the inside face to attach the face frame ..

Next drawer construction ..
