I have limited wall space for storage, and I saw the plans for this in Shopnotes. It was my first major project, and I had a lot of fun building it.

I iitially though you has two cabinets. Then I realized the walls with the blades slide.

Well done.

If I had it to do all over again, I would make it just a little deeper. The depth is 5-1/2”, and after adding the sliding doors, you are left with shelves only 3-1/2” deep.

I made their folding workbench from issue 72 for my last place and was very impressed with how easy to read the directions were. What issue was this from and how deep wold you recommend? I think I would like to try this top with the fold down bottom…see how it flies.

-- Sure Dear, I can make that for you. Lemme just run out and get a tool I need for that.

I was thinking 7” deep, which would give you 5” deep shelves. I bought shopnotes “Small Shop Solutions”. It is 9.95 with free shipping. Right now they have a special.

I have that article somewhere, gotta dig it out, looks great. They were giving them away with subscriptions at one point. I always enjoy peeking at what tools others go with. Would love to have the Forrest WW blade.

I love the WWII blade. On the woodnet forum, someone is selling one. It doesn’t look like it has sold, yet.

Beautiful! I’ve looked at these plans many times over the last year. This is exactly what I will be putting in my shop (so many things to build, so little time). Very nice to see it done so well.

rb765, the plans are from ShopNotes #77.
