Under Scrollsaw Storage

I have my spindle sander piggy backed on the same stand as the scroll saw and the blades and sanding drums were stored in various places that I had to remember. I decided I had the space to build a cabinet to hold the scroll saw blades and all the sanding drums right under the scroll saw and it will be enclosed to keep out the dust. I added a window on the front so I could get enough light to see all the stuff in there.
This was made with all scrap and extra material from past jobs- mostly 1/2” plywood.
The window is left over Lexan. I had the hinges and handle from the white elephant sale that the Y runs every year. It is all glued together with Titebond III.
The base and top are rabbeted all around and the inside shelf sets in dadoes on three sides.
I coated it with shellac

You certainly can’t ever have enough storage, great use of space with your addition.

That’s a great use of that wasted space. Very handy having your accessories right there. Now that window is really a clever addition to your storage cabinet.

When Woodbutcher3 was helping me assemble my new scrollsaw, he suggested building a storage cabinet underneath. Now I have a pattern to go by. Nicely done Jim.

It looks like the front of your machine has rollers and the back doesn’t. Is that working well for you?

Great use of space. Almost all of us have volumes of potential storage space available that we just don’t capitalize on. This is how to take advantage of it.

Thanks Jim,

Russ

‘Can’t have enough storage…’
I am in on that one, and then storage where it is needed!
Perfect.

Hi Rance. I have 4 casters under the scroll saw. It used to have 3 but it was tippy. So I added a cross bar and put 2 in the back. The spindle sander is cantilevered off of it and there are no casters way in the back.

Also, I put the storage here so it goes with the machine if I move!
