It feels good to be back in the shop. I didn’t know how versatile these saws were until I finally got one and the new Bosch is a joy to work. It sure makes breaking down panels alot quicker as you can take a 24” wide sheet and flip it over to finish the cut. I plan to add a fence later on.

You can never have to many clamps and you can’t have to much storage. All the drawers are 22” full extension and there’s a full extension shelf for the spindle sander. The bench matches the other cabinets with the same plastic laminate. The next project will be a rolling shop cabinet for the planer and then a combination router, assembly, and sheet cutting table. Stay tuned.

Full extension drawers are the way to go. You must have a few bucks in this project. Nice upgrade to the shop…................

The laminate was from a $10 blemished 5’x10’ sheet, the rest is plywood with iron on edge banding. The drawer slides were around $8 apiece (I think) in a pack of 10. Then there’s the saw…

Huge, It’ll take a day or two to remember what drawer has what. Nice setup.

Awesome! I am in the process of designing something similar for my garage. I have a Dewalt 12” double bevel, sliding miter saw…plan to do a recessed table similar to yours that is 28” deep, 34” tall to match a sawstop table saw that is coming soon, and 22 feet wide to fill the depth of my garage.

I have never built anything with drawers though so I’m not quite sure how to do that yet…
