So I finally finished it it took me almost 3 weeks.. Just to let you know I completed a blog on this mammoth project and a link is below:

http://lumberjocks.com/edwood1975/blog/series/13290

I’ll start of by listing some of its features:
1. Made with poplar plywood and solid poplar face frames
2. There are 2 cabinets seperatated by the a shelf for the mitre saw to sit on ( cabinet dimensions are 36” wide x 24” deep x 40” high
3. There are 2 drawers ( 1 in each cabinet) and I used fully extendable ball bearing drawer slides

4. I purchased most of the components of the Kreg Precision Track & stop kit ( all I didn’t get is the adhesive measure tape and flip stop)

5. The cabinet doors are frame and panel design and I used a basic mortise and tennon joint with a dado cut into the rails and stiles to receive the 1/4” plywood.

6. I also purchased the Craftsman compact sliding mitre saw.. I got a great deal and I found a coupon I think I got it for $225

7. The ample cabinet space will be used for benchtop tools such as my drillpress and I will be getting a bandsaw soon as well.

That’s it I hope you like it and finally I got inspiration for this project from a fellow Lumberjocks username ThinKerf

Nice work Ed! Looks like you are on your way to a full shop. Keep it up and I see an addition to the house.
Keep making sawdust. Looks great

Nice! This is on my to-do list.

I have a space about the same as yours, except it is a recessed cove. I’ll need to have the ability for the saw to slide out about 24” (and add pull out supports) if I need to cut a board over 4’.

Do you intend to stash a shop vac below for dust collection?
