Got to noticing all the wasted space under my drill press table and decided to put it to better use with this little storage cabinet. Made from 1/2 ” scrap MDF I had laying around. An easy and fun little shop project.

Good idea! Can never have too much storage. If you do, buy stuff to fill it up!

Hey…..that shop looks familiar!

Nice job on the storage area. What about when you have to raise or lower the table? Has that been a problem? Is the table top actually the top of the cabinet, or is it separate?

Is that enough questions? One more…is that a second Rikon I see? LOL
