Finally finished my flip-top cabinet. It houses my drill press and miter saw. The wings flip up on both sides for more support on the saw. I used all the space I could underneath for storage. I now have storage for saw blades, drill bits, and accessories. I even left a cubby hole for storing small power tools. I’m really happy with how it turned out.

- ashe


The top is just three layers of 3/4” plywood laminated together. The middle layer is split down the middle to form a 3/4” square hole. I just used a dowel as the axle. I used retaining blocks to hold the axle in and I counter bored them to give a little more purchase for the ends of the axle. Coincidently 3/4” dowels fit perfectly in the eye of 5/16” eye bolts. I used short pieces of dowel for the pivots for the eye bolts ad well. Works really well.
