I have been working on my workshop bucket list and it was time to build a wall mounted cabinet for my growing router bit and accessories collection… I will be upgrading my router cabinet in the new year but right now I am working on trying to centralize all my tools into there respective homes.
I got the inspiration for this project on the Wordsmith shop where they designed a cabinet that also had a drop down table as you see below.. but to be honest I have no need for the drop down table so I came up with my own design…
I have included all my Sketchup models t show dimensions and ultimately how it goes together.
Here you can see the main unit with the doors opened
This is an exploded view if the cabinet carcass
I am referencing where the dado are placed in the sides of the cabinet
This is a stand alone model of the doors, they are basically 1×4 lumber with a series of dados in the them to receive the bit shelves, the front is just a dado placed to receive the 1/4” plywood panel
Here is an exploded view of the box although my drawing used finger/box joints I didn’t because my ginger joint jig broke and I reverted to the tried and trusted butt joints with decorative screw inserts.
4×8x 3/4” plywood (because this is only a shop project I used sanded ply)
(4) 1×4 pine board for the doors
4×8x1/4’ lywood (this is for the boxes and the door panels)
I hope you like it it was a fun build and it affords me so much storage space for a very much utilized tool where its accessories are growing by the day.
