I found this small cabinet at a garage sale and paid $3. Took it home, cleaned it up, installed a back, top and wheels. Then I mounted my Work Sharp and Slow Speed Grinder on top. The drawers hold sandpaper, sharpening stones and jigs.

sweet deal

-- - Jei, Rockford IL - When in doubt, spray it with WD-40 and wrap it with duct tape. The details will attend to themselves.
