Well, here’s another shop project that I just finished. It’s made from Baltic Birch Plywood with the face frame from walnut. There’s nothing really fancy about it. The lower two drawers are finished. After I use the upper drawers and move things around to see where I like everything, I’ll add some dividers to the drawers. The upper two drawer slides are side mount full extension. The bottom two drawers are undermount full extension drawer slides. I put the miter gauges on the sides of the cabinet because I rarely use them. The lower drawer with the circular saw has a plywood runner on each side to hold the saws supporting board a up about 2 inches from the bottom of the drawer. The saws supporting board has an inch wide slot in it so the blade can go through. I placed a 1/2” 2 X 2 square inbetween each dado chipper. That’s about it.

Although there’s not much to this project, I still provided instructions and dimensions on my website. If you would like to see this project or my other projects you can visit my website at

very nice job, I like the original miter gauge that came with your saw. I want to get one and the fence too, the fence has a removable face right? Anyway, the cabinet you made is a real good idea i also need allot of storage for table saw accessories too. ;)

In regards to the fence, it’s a brand new table saw so I have no idea. I’m sure it can be replaced. I refaced a biesemeyer and it wasn’t hard. I love this table saw. The miter gauge that came with it is great and I wouldn’t have purchased the Incra but I had it long before I got the table saw.

This looks great. I really like the circular saw placement. I’m about to put a new fence on my old craftsman saw so I might have to give one of these a try.

Very nice build Angela. Wow, box joints on the carcass? That’s impressive. You say the saw is brand new. I’ve had the same saw for close to 2 years now and you are going to love it. What’s not to love. This cabinet makes great use of that dead space under the extension table and keeps all the accessories right at hand. Congrats on a wonderful piece.

Hi Angela

Good looking table saw cabinet. You did a great job planing it out. Very nicely done. I have a PM2000 saw like yours as well. Great minds must think alike. I want to build a cabinet very similar to the one you just built. Thanks for the inspiration. I do not know what you are planing on putting in front of your saw but I did a catch table/assembly table/storaage unit I like real well.

God Bless

Hey Tom,
I was looking at your projects earlier today. I couldn’t believe how clean your shop looks. The table saw still looks new. I also saw the table you’re talking about.

I have a fold down outfeed table in the front. It’s attached by brackets I attached to the table saw. Someday I might have a shop that’s large enough for all the stuff I would like to have.

This is a beautiful saw storage cabinet and has a lot of nice storage space and other details. It’s a wonderful addition to your shop.
