New Shop Cabinets

Finally finished some shop cabinets to help organize things a bit better. For the bench I went with a MDF sandwich with some masonite on top. Its been a few months and I think a dip is starting to form on the right side. I’m guessing the weight is not correctly supported so it will likely come off some day.

Overall good project to get done and give me some more practice with doors.

As info, the center section was left empty for a future slat wall or french cleat area for frequently used tools.

Thanks for looking.

Knot free plywood on the walls. That looks great ! I really like the table saw router combination. Looks very familar. (Probably newer than mine though)

The beadboard on the walls….I do like it but I did have some buyer’s remorse afterwards. I went that route as opposed to some vertical siding material (plywood) in an attempt to keep dust down. The downside is this stuff is only 1/4 thick so I still need to find studs.

The router table combo has been great. I just got a new cabinet saw (not set up yet) that my router extension won’t work with, so I’ll need to come up with something else.

Those look great! I like them better than the ones in my kitchen. BTW, what is the fence system you are using for the craftsman saw? Looks like a great set up. Like the outfeed table too.

@Jason – the fence is a Jet Xacta Fence. I got a great deal on a clearance one at my local woodworkers shop. The fence upgrade was by far the single best this I did for that saw.

Nice cabinets and a nice clean shop, I gotta work on that.

-- Martin ....always count the number of fingers you have before, and after using the saw.
