When I sold my old Craftsman saw#, I lost the really great base with storage and drawers.
I really have missed not having my saw blades and dado set at my right hand. I also have always want a easier way to access my tools that I use on the saw all the time, without having to have them sit on top of the saw.
So I came up with this cabinet design. The drawer fronts are jatoba ( Brazilian Cherry ) I got this free a friend at the stair manufacturing company.
The design includes a pull out tray on the top of the cabinet. This was a lot of extra trim work, but I like the way it turned out.
The rest of the construction is 3/4” HD Sandeply. It is finished with 1 coat of shellac to prep the jatoba and then multiple coats of poly.
Again it was a learning experience.
The biggest failure in the design is my grippers will not fit on the pull out shelf.
If I had it to do again, I would make it 3 inches shorter and only have 4 drawers dropping 2 of the narrow ones.
