Cabinate for Scroll Saw stand

I was sitting there looking at my scroll saw when it dawned on me I had the perfect place for a cabinate for my scroll saw supplies. So I pulled out a scrap piece of plywood and some shelving board and went to werk. The tall drawer on right is storage for blades. I don’t have but a few blades now but as I get some I will mark the tubes as to size, pitch, etc. For the bottom of this tray I took a 2×4 and drilled it out to receive the tubes which are 3×4 hot water PVC pipe with a short dowel driven in one end.

I started to make two smaller drawers for the bottom but decided on one deep one. I made some knobs and installed them and it was done.

Good idea and good timing, as I just bought and assembled a eBay’ed DeWalt DW788 Type I scroll saw and new DW7880 stand from Amazon two days ago. I will have to do something similar with my space under the saw.

I would like to ask a question about your setup in the 1st, 3rd, and 5th picture. To the right of your drawer insert and in the very upper corner of the picture I see what seems to me anyway a wood dust chute and black/red fitting of some sort coming from under the saw table. I have not seen any type of vacuum system for the DeWalt. Can you give me some more info on it?

Thanks,

-Dave

From one scroller to another, I like this very much. The waste shoot is a big plus.

I Agree with Cozmo. This is a great storage solution. I love the dust shoot to. More info and pictures would be great.

Thanks for the comments. I am slowly beginning to add cabinets to each of my tools.

I will add another project for the chute.

Glad it will be a help to you Dave. It is really simple to make. Notice the two strips at the top of first pic. As I made it as close to the dimensions of the stand opening as possible these strips are all it takes to hold it in the stand. I have them on front and back. Other than that it just slides in the space.
