My first attempt at a cabinet of any kind. The idea came from American Woodworker magazine which I modified to suite me. I have a friend who is a cabinet maker by trade help me with the main cabinet (rabbets and dados), then I tackled the drawers myself. Made some mistakes and it’s not perfect, but I’m pleased with it. It gives me some MUCH needed storage and organization for all my table saw accessories. The open right side is where I have all my TS sleds and a holder for the rip fence for when I’m using a sled. The bottom drawer has blade and insert storage with room for more. I currently have my Incra miter guage in that drawer but will make a holder for it on the side of the cabinet when I get my dado blades, insert and brake cartridge. It’s on wheels, so I can roll it out from under the wing if I need more space when I’m working on a project. The material is all 3/4” plywood.
Thanks for looking.

Great storage cabinet, and I like the big drawer for the blades, but to have to realign the miter gauge each time you want to use it ??? I have mine designed to slip atop of the cabinet, and the rip fence on the side similar to yours … as I build it I will tell you if it is a good idea or not.

I see that your not showing off any dove tails so I assume that you used the drawer lock joints … Good job of mounting the drawer faces, they look very symmetrical and straight.

Well thought out and executed utility cabinet. I just hope that mine turns out as well.
