One more part of my shop re-work. I built this cabinet for my scroll saw (Hitachi 16”) and my benchtop drill press. The Black and Decker wouldn’t be my first choice but I scored it at a garage sale CHEAP and it does the job fairly well until I find a better one at the right price. The cabinet is 60” long x 20” deep and is on casters as most of the other cabinets in my shop. 1 drawer is for scroll saw blades and parts and the other 2 have drill bits and my forstners, as well as driver tips and holders. The 3 doors below store finishing supplies (sealer, lacquer, poly, paint, etc.) and shop-built fences for the press. It matches my workbench, my storage cabinet, and the little base cabinet my bench tools to set on when used.
There is one more cabinet to finish. My router table. I hit the sale at Rockler again this weekend and picked up 2 of the T-track kits (4’ w/ knobs and bolts) to build a fence for it. I hope to finish it this week.

Nice build Robert. That’s the same scroll saw I got. do you like it? I redid the insert because the factory one was too low on the table. It was hard to do small pieces. Keep on makin sawdust.
