I like it it Ed…. Have mine hid in a rack on the inside of my saw till…its not very convient at all. Yours looks way more user friendly. Nice job.

I didn’t get it until I saw the last pic, now I like it a lot.

What do the drawer slides do? thanks

Clever idea, I would suggest something at the bottom to protect the nice sharp blades. I have mine in a drawer under the lathe with some stiff foam insulation I got out of a box some electronics were shipped in.

Appreciate the comments. A little foam is a good idea, should have some in my goodies. Drawer slides? Future project, one pair came off a bottom freezer/refrigerator, looked like they could be useful. After buying a new fridge lord knows I cant afford slides. Yes I like the fold down shelf over the lathe. Just a little more serviceable space
