I needed a worthy dedicated home for my drill press and bits. After finishing my miter saw with fold out wing project, I used nearly the same structure with the addition of a backwall & top shelf. I was trying to gather ideas for a drill press mobile cart but saw nothing in regards to a back wall or over head shelf so tried this out. Laminated 2×4’s at the 4 corners with 3/4” plywood walls to give that super stable fit all around. Drawers underneath to hold my screws & bolts and misc. Unsure what to do with the unused space as of yet but it’s there for future. I snagged a doctor’s examination table with 2 slide out foot pedestals for $20, which means 4×300lb rated drawer slides, which I used here. French cleats along the back wall to hold my bits and stuff with gauge holes to help eyeball needs. Uptop you can see hand tools in 3” pvc and battery charger storage. All in all, I’m happy with how this turned out, it isn’t pretty but functional so I can move on. Leaves room for future accessory additions.
