You can never have enough storage space! The cabinet was made from Maple plywood. There are 6 smalll drawers (each with dividers for nails, screws, washers, etc). There are ten total drawers and two cabinet doors with shelves. I installed the Kreg Precision Measuring System so I will not have to use stop blocks and tape measures anymore. I think it all came out pretty good. Thanks for looking.

Great job!I am in te planning stage of a similar design, also using the Kreg system. What is the total width of your unit, and what size board can you handle to the right or left? Nice work!

very nice! Every time I measure out a board to cut with my mitre saw I wish that I had the Kreg System…

The Mitre cabinet is 8 feet long total and the with is 26 inches. I would have probably made it a couple of inches wider but it is in my garage on a stepup and that was all the room I had. Good luck. It definitely a worthwhile project.
