Good evening LJ’s.

This is my take on a storage cabinet for the SawStop. I had one once before for my old saw, but the SawStop was much lower, so I could no longer use it for the same purpose so this was born. I meshed some ideas from 2 sources: 1 from a fellow LJ @AZmO for his painting idea and 2nd from Brad of Fix This Build That for the vertical drawer. I think it turned out nice. The red paint and handles were my ideas as I couldn’t just leave it with plain handles after painting it black. Let me know what you think. I’m definitely going to enjoy having all of my TS tools, jigs, and accessories all in the same place again.

Made from 3/4” ply for the cabinet, lots of edgebanding to hide the plywood edge for painting, 1/2” ply for the drawers, 1/4” ply for the drawer bottoms, vertical drawer is 3/4” ply throughout, front panels are 3/4” ply edgebanded, Black Enamel Gloss spray paint, Red Enamel painted with a brush, cabinet on 4 – 3” double locking casters.

Panels for the cabinet cut

Basic cabinet assembled with iron-on edge banding.

Parts for drawers cut

Drawers glued and assembled

Base cabinet painted, drawer slides installed, drawers installed

Back panel installed

Front panels installed

Front panels painted with 4 of the handles installed. At this point, I was still debating where the vertical pull would look good.

Made my decision on the vertical pull and also added some red paint to add some color to the cabinet.

I don’t love the paint, but man, you built a really nice cabinet. Is it completely separate from the tablesaw extension? Really nice piece of work!

Thanks for all the compliments. I’ve already started to put the accessories in and it’s fantastic. I will pull the verital drawer out this weekend to lay out the accessories I need the most access to outside of push blocks.

Yes, it’s completely separate from the tablesaw. I removed the extension legs and it just rolls under. Double locking casters keeps it in place.

Like the cabinet, I need to make one for my Sawstop. Right now, I have a re-purposed 4 drawer cabinet I saved from the dumpster and put wheels on. It is to tall to fit under the table right now, with the wheels. The question I have for you is, have you missed the legs on the extension table? Do you think they are needed at all. I am assuming from the picture, you have the 37” T-Glide Fence. Dan

I always buy used trucks with dents. Your Saw is just too pretty. You need to get it dirty man.

The 30” doesn’t have legs and the 37” probably only needs it because if you put a LOT of weight on the wings, it could possibly tip, but I have the industrial mobile base, so it’s wider and on all 4, so the chances of tipping is extremely small and even if it did, the cabinet is only 1/2” lower, so the TS has nowhere to go no matter what.

If I took 2 steps back and took a picture, you’d see just how chaotic everything is. LOL. Setting up glamour shots for the “fake” clean-shop-look makes me feel, for a moment, that everything is organized. One can only hope it’ll be that way at least for moments at a time.

Have your say...
