Hello everyone,

I haven’t been in the shop for a very long time. Got busy with other things around the house last fall and then the winter hit and I went into hibernation. Well, the weather has turned and I got back in there this week. And what does any self respecting LumberJock make after a long absence from the shop? Something FOR the shop of course! Nothing fancy here, just some birch ply that I had around and a crazy amount of pocket screws. Boy are those things addicting :-) I’m thinking of adding a shallow tray on top right between the charger cradle and the drill as a place where I could keep a few driver bits handy. I plan on lagging this to the wall in a handy spot above the bench. Anyway, thanks for looking and take care,

Joe Mags

That’s a nice looking cabinet. Well done. I agree with adding a tray for the miscellaneous stuff, but I’d think about making it a removable tray. It might be handy to be able to carry that tray to the work area.

In any case, again, very nicely done!

Thanks everyone, I really appreciate it. I like little projects like this because they give you practice and more ideas.

Hey Gary, we’re practically neighbors. I’m in Conway.

Thanks again everyone.

Great idea! I have about 4 drills hanging around a bench that could use a good cleanup like you’ve shown. Thanks for the idea!
