Ok I consider it done for now and s very important tool in my shop. The cabinet is open back and held to the wall with a French cleat. I saw the idea in one of my many magazines in organizing shops and from a cabniet ikea used to sell for laptop computers. I used some cheap hinges and the supports from big box store. I just need to finish the wood or paint it but it ended up being put to use until I can put final touches on it like a stop bar for my paper.i guess I really need to get a book shelf done because I have ended up piling my books on top of my drawing station. This is one of my favorite shop appliances because it does not take up any space and is easy for me epically since I just roll right under the fold down desk.this was made with all hand tools and mass amounts of coffee.

Nice Todd! LEDs are a nice addition. I made an attachment to sit atop my drill press table for like duties. Nice when every other horizontal space is cluttered up.

Looks like a favorite corner of the shop!

Very functional, and a great way to keep saw dust out of your coffee mug.

Wow thanks for all the positive comments I thought about putting blackboard paint on the front of it so I could keep a shop list of to do things but I decided not to because my wife would just keep adding her projects on it.
