While I’m working on some new projects I thought I’d share some of my older, pre-LJ ones.
This is a multi-solution project I designed to fit in an unusual space by a floor/ceiling beam. It offers a perfect place to store 10” table saw blades, table saw inserts, 12” RAS and Miter Saw blades, router bits and router fence inserts, along with shop manuals for bench tools and portable tools.
Looking at the front: the left door swings up (like a Barrister bookcase) and the two orange binders hold my bench and portable tool manuals. The right section contains ten vertically stacked trays for holding 10” saw blades, with some now being doubled up to hold additional blades (separated by a 6” stabilizer). (Interesting how I just keep accumulating things.)
Looking at the bottom row in front, starting from the left is the drawer for my router fence inserts, which match different bit profiles for a saw/router fence I designed. Next, on the right are two stacked drawers with the upper for my 8” dado set and the lower for a molding head and cutters. On the right side at top you see the drawer for my table saw inserts. Below that are four trays/drawers for 12” saw blades.
The piece de resistance (IMHO) is the router bit drawers at the back and behind the area on front for the manuals, 10” blades, etc. These drawers take advantage of the design difference between the 10” blade storage and the 12” blade storage and have provided a handy, readily accessible system for storing my router bits.
My router table is incorporated in the right extension of my table saw top, below the cabinet, taking advantage of the table saw fence (and accessories for that fence).
Thanks for looking.
