I’ve wanted to solve both my hardware and my sander problems for awhile now. Recently I’ve stored my sander in a cabinet and then lifted it to the bench when needed. That gets old fast. I also found myself using it less than I think I normally would. I’ve always been annoyed with all my hardware in different areas around the shop. I’ve seen some similar storage solutions on LJ.
Here’s the breakdown:
3/4” plywood case
laminated 3/4” MDF top with maple trim
3” casters (Grizzly)
Sander height is a comfortable elbow height for me (I’m 6’3”)
Stanley hardware boxes are on both sides of cabinet – 12 total of varying sizes
Wanted a place to set the hardware box on when I need to get access = 1 sliding 1/2” MDF shelf that slides thru to either side and is out of sight in the middle when not in use
For now I’ve parked it between my router table (I know, I need to finish it!!) and bandsaw. I can easily roll it out of the way if needed. Right now I’ve probably only filled up half of the hardware compartments – lots of room for future growth. Also have some space on the top behind the sander. Maybe a future disc sander or bench grinder could go there.
Thanks for looking!
