My table saw blades and tools were too far away from the point of use. The combo disc/ belt sander I rarely use but refuse to get rid of needed a better home out of my way.

The cabinet fits under the table saw extension when used as storage and rolls out to use as a base for the sanding machine. The box is black lacquer with a poplar face frame and top. I sprayed it with shellac and then let it sit out in the sun for a day to attempt a more tanned, aged look. The process added a little color but I do not think the late October sun in KY is intense enough for the result I was going for.

For the drawer boxes I used some oak I had on hand, rabbets on the corners and 1/4” walnut dowels to add strength. Full extension slides (online) and clearance drawer pulls from lowe’s finished it off.

Thanks guys, I appreciate you looking at my projects.

I am going to post shop pics sometime soon. I have been cleaning up a bit here and there in preparation for shop pics. I dont want it to look wrecked when I take the photos. My travel schedule for work is very hectic lately, projects are slow rolling.

That’s a nice shop cabinet. It’s very practical and versatile.
