The stand from Northern Tool wasn’t making it for my older than the hills Craftsman grinder. Because it was not bolted down, it would vibrate around when used. I made this wall unit so I could sweep under it. I would like to add a drawer later on under the shelf for misc. tools. The shelf is glued up cedar and fir finished with three coats of poly. The wall supports are reused rough cut fir from old beams.

Thanks for lookin’..............

Nice shelf! It’s almost too nice for the shop.

What heater is that hanging on the wall in the last pic?

Really nice, very organized. Pretty fancy for a grinder but what the heck!
